Highlights
    What to Expect
    Make your own way to the predetermined departure point in central Rome where you meet your guide. Step aboard the climate-controlled coach and head to the catacombs, which are located underneath the Basilica of St. Sebastian.
    Your guide explains the significance of the church façade, then takes you inside to see the tomb of St Sebastian. Next, descend to the catacombs, the first burial site of the Appian Way. As you look around, your guide shares informative commentary about the catacombs, such as the legend that they once held the bodies of the apostles St Peter and St Paul.
    Continue along the Via Appia to the tomb of Cecilia Metella, which dates to the first century BC and was made to honor the daughter of the Roman Consul. It later became a castle for the Caetani family, an aristocratic family with close ties to the papacy.
    Head to the magnificent Aqueduct Park to take in the largest aqueducts of the Roman Empire. Gaze over aqueduct arches that stretch over miles and see one that supplies water to this day.
    Your tour ends with return to the Basilica di Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri, which is located in the Piazza della Repubblica.

    History buff or not, this tour was well worth it. Sarena was knowledgeable and fun. It was just the 3 of us and our drivers. It was another side of history that many either don’t realize or just don’t know. A great escape from the...More

    We ended up being the only 2 on this tour on a January Monday, and it was terrific. The tour offered more than I’d anticipated, esp the Bascilica and the aqueducts were unexpected. We had the great pleasure of hearing an orchestra practice at San...More

    In addition to the history, this tour was a lovely way to leave the center of Rome for a small-group van ride to the suburbs. First stop was a beautiful nature park with remnants of aqueducts. It was in this area, said our guide, that...More

    This tour is an excellent opportunity to get out of the downtown core to visit the aqueducts, Appian Way, and SAN Sebastian Catacombs. Serena was a wonderful tour guide...so knowledgeable about the history of Rome and very approachable. This is a well paced tour and...More
