Explore some of the rarest places to visit in Rome - the Catacombs and Roman countryside. This combination bus and walking tour takes you beyond the city walls and back in time to Ancient Rome.

This Rome sightseeing tour begins with a comfortable bus ride to the Roman countryside. Starting with the famous Catacombs of San Callisto and continuing on to Circus of Maxentius with an external visit to the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella. This beautiful day trip in Rome ends with a visit to the incredible Appian Way and Claudian Aqueduct. Truly unique destinations and a must-see on your Rome itinerary.
itinerary
  1. The sightseeing tour begins with a comfortable bus ride to the Roman countryside. Here you will discover the beauty that lies outside of Rome, starting with the infamous Catacombs of San Callisto- among the largest and most important in Italy. This underground cemetery and the burial site of 500,000 Christians and dozens of martyrs and popes is divided into two areas – the crypt of St. Cecilia and the Crypt of the Popes.
  2. We continue by bus through the Roman countryside to the next destination – Circus of Maxentius. Although not as renown as Circus Maximus, this well-preserved structure can be found in the lush Caffarella Park.
  3. Next stop on this undiscovered Rome itinerary is an external visit to the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella. Located at the top of a hill along Via Appia, this monumental tomb was built to honor the Roman noblewoman during the 1st century B.C.
  4. We continue with a walk through one of the oldest and most significant streets in the world - the Appian Way. Referred to by Romans as the “Queen of Roads”, Via Appia connected Rome to Brindisi in Southern Italy, serving as the main trade route with Greece and the East. Which is why the Appian Way of 300 B.C. is considered one of the greatest engineering works of the Ancient Rome civilization.
  5. The last stop on this unique Rome tour is the Claudian Aqueduct. Built in 38 A.D. and completed only 14 years later, it existed as a main water source for Rome, an engineering marvel with arches stretching nearly 70 kilometers. Now part of the Aqueduct Park, Acqua Claudia is regarded as one of the four great aqueducts of Rome.

Einmalig!!
Wir hatten eine deutschsprachige Tour, am 17.08, zu den Callixtuskatakomben, der Via Appia Antica und einem altrömischen Aquädukt. Unsere wunderbare und temperamentvolle Marij hat uns nicht nur mit viel Humor und Elan zu den verschiedenen Sehenwürdigkeiten begleitet, sondern uns damit auch den heißen Tag versüßt. Fragen kamen aufgrund der tollen Geschichten von Marij erst gar nicht auf und wir fühlten uns zu jeder Zeit sehr gut informiert. Sie hat uns mit Fragen und Anregungen immer miteinbezogen und in den 3 Stunden auch noch spielend unsere Namen gelernt. Die Katakomben waren sehr sehenswert und sind zu Fuß mit festen Schuhen gut zu bewältigen. Auch die Via Appia Antica lässt nicht zu wünschen übrig. Ein toller Abschluss ist die Fahrt zum Aqua Claudia - ein oberirdisches noch gut erhaltenes Aquädukt, das aus den Bergen nach Rom führt. Auf dem Rückweg haben wir noch wertvolle Tipps für den weiteren Aufenthalt in Rom bekommen. 3 Stunden waren schnell vorbei und wir mussten uns leider schon von Marij verabschieden. Im kleinen Bus mit insgesamt 12 Personen war es eine sehr gemütliche und kurzweilige Tour! Hoffentlich sehen wir uns bald wieder!

Absolutely Amazing, a must in Rome!
We took 2 tours from Enjoy Rome. The 1st was the walking tour of the Vatican with Valentina on Sept 4th and 2nd was the walking tour of ancient Rome the following day with Rosa. They were both amazing. These are a must do while in Rome. Both tours were well organized, extremely insightful and fun. We felt we got more then just a tour but a 1st had experience with Rome. The tour guides truly made these experiences and they are very passionate and knowledgeable about the tours. The tour office was easy to find, they started the tour promptly and there were no hidden costs or surprises. Thank you for a memorable experience, they will be with us forever.

Enjoyed Catacombs and Roman Countryside Tour
My daughter and I took this tour and both liked it. We booked it because we wanted to get out to the catacombs and the Appian Way without having to deal with figuring out the transportation. Even though we liked this tour, I'll have to say that we took two other tours with Through Eternity and thought their guide was a bit more passionate and did a better job. Anyway, this tour takes you via bus to the catacombs on the Appian Way, where you join a guided tour given by a priest or monk (your guide for this part is affiliated with the catacombs site, not Enjoy Rome). We both thought the catacombs were interesting. Note: They tend to take somewhat large (20 people?) groups down. Try and stay in the front, or you might have trouble hearing what the guide is saying. After the catacombs, the tour continues further down the Appian Way, where you get to get out of the bus and walk a bit. At the end of the tour, they stop at a point where you can see the aqueducts. The view of the aqueducts is over a golf course. I was hoping we'd be a bit closer. The bus was comfortable with good air conditioning. However, a few times the bus driver was talking on his phone at a conversational tone while the tour guide was talking and it was a bit hard to hear her. To me, that struck me as a bit bone-headed on the bus driver's part. I'd guess we spent about 1 to 1.5 hours of the 3 hours on the bus. Even though this tour wasn't the "near-perfect" experience our Through Eternity tours were, we both thought it was a good experience and a reasonable value.

Worth a morning of our time
With a short time in Rome, we had walked all over the major sights - Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatino, St Peters, Vatican, Pantheon... So we opted for an easier morning, together with a chance to see the Appian Way and the Catacombs. This isn't an in-depth look at either (it's just 3 hours) but it's a very pleasant morning. Jeanette was a personable and knowledgable guide who took the trouble to interact with a small group of about 12. A comfortable coach, an interesting morning and worth the time and the money. A bonus was the short walk down to the remnants of a Roman aqueduct. Dramatic. We enjoyed taking the trip outside the city walls

Catacomb tour is a must!
We had an excellent tour guide, Jeanette, who really made the trip for us. She was so knowledgable and really took the time to interact with everybody and take questions. She explained everything confidently. Seeing the catacombs was really great, and the addition of the Appian Way and Aquaduct made it great value for money.
