Q&A
  • What are the Catacombs of Rome?

    The Catacombs of Rome are the ancient, underground burial grounds some dating back to the beginning of the 2nd century, as a result of the Roman ban on burials within the city at that time (before Christianity became an official religion). These secret, subterranean passageways were accidently discovered in 1578 by archeologist Giovanni Battista de Rossi. Although the Catacombs of Rome are largely famous for being a former Christian burial site, there are other creeds buried underground here.
  • Can you visit the Catacombs in Rome?

    The only way to visit the Catacombs in Rome is with a guided tour. While there are at least forty catacombs in Rome, only 5 are open to the public.
  • Which catacombs to see in Rome?

    The only catacombs you can see in Rome are the Catacombs of St. Callixtus (or Catacombs of San Callisto), Catacombs of Domitilla, Catacombs of Priscilla, Catacombs of San Sebastiano, and Catacombs of Sant’Agnese.
  • How long are the Catacombs of Rome?

    The Catacombs of Rome are some of the longest burial tunnels in the world. For example, the Catacombs of San Calixto are almost 20 km (12 miles) long!
  • Why were the Catacombs of Rome built?

    The Catacombs of Rome were built because it was illegal to bury the dead underground within the city walls of Rome at that time. So people of different religions and beliefs had to resort to building these underground passageways which became the burial site and cemeteries to many pagan, Jewish, and Christian Roman citizens starting from 2nd century AD.
  • How many bodies are in the Catacombs of Rome?

    There are thousands of tombs hidden underground the catacombs of Rome. The Latin word for ‘next to the quarry’, the Roman Catacombs (or catatumbas) contain not only the tombs and bodies of the dead, but extremely important Early Christian art in the form of frescoes, sculptures and even gold glass medallions.

Great Catacombs tour
We were in Rome for the first 3 days of our trip to Italy. Out of the 3 tours we did, only one was with EnjoyRome and it was the best out of all three. Marcello was an awesome guide. Very knowledgeable but also extremely friendly and nice. He answered questions about the city, it’s history of other stuff and even helped us with our italian so we didn’t sound like total tourists! Highly recommend Marcello and Enjoy Rome tours!

Katakombentour
Wir waren heute mit Steffi auf eine sehr guten Tour zu den Katakomben, Via Appia und dem Aquädukt. Es war eine sehr gut geführte Tour. Steffi hat es geschafft uns viele spannende Infos und Anekdoten mitzugeben. Wir haben die Tour genossen! Ein herzlicher Gruß, Wiebke Braune, Heilbronn, Deutschland

Great tour, fantastico guide
Pre booked before getting to Rome. Meeting place was easy to find. Coach journey to the locations was easy. The locations were beautiful, the catacombs eerie but amazing and the countryside a refreshing change from the high rise of Rome. Our guide Francesca was brilliant, very knowledgeable and witty with it. A really nice tour...............

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.

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.
