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.
