Discover the Underground Landscapes of Rome

The tour begins with a fascinating explanation of the history of Rome and the systems used to raise up the buildings of the ancient city. Your guide accompanies you to explore a special catacomb and discover different underground landscapes. We access the cave via a dirt path from the city, about a ten-minute walk.

Enjoy the great feeling that comes with discovering new archeological sites; nothing beats the excitement of hands-on archaeology. Proper equipment is essential for a descent; a helmet with a headlamp and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty are provided.

You’d be amazed at how much you can learn in a few hours. You get to experience the excitement we felt when the head of the archaeological superintendence asked us to investigate areas of human activity buried beneath hundreds to thousands of years of sediment! There are three keywords for this excursion: helmet, light, and… adventure!
