Stop At: Sant Agnese fuori le Mura, Via Nomentana 349 quartiere Trieste, 00162 Rome Italy
Your chauffeur will drop you off at the incredible Basilica of Saint Agnes outside the walls, built in honour and protection of the remains of Saint Agnes, a very young Christian martyr executed under the reign of Diocletian. Here you will have the chance to visit the beautiful interior of the Basilica and descend into the impressive catacombs, through exclusive access granted ONLY to our company's groups. A Saint Agnes affiliated and certified guide will here take you and other groups from our company only in the underground hallways lined by hundreds of tombs.
Duration: 1 hour
Stop At: Mausoleo di Santa Costanza, Via Nomentana 349, 00162 Rome Italy
Once above ground again, continue your visit with your exclusively small group of only 6 people. Next stop will be just behind the Basilica di Saint Agnes, in the Mausoleo di Costanza. In fact, the basilica is part of a larger, prominent palaeo-Christian funerary complex which is also home to a mausoleum dedicated to Costanza, Emperor Constantine’s daughter. Both his daughters, Costanza and Helena’s remains are buried here, and they have been venerated with priceless 4th century mosaics, some of which depict early versions of Jesus – with long hair and a halo – as he is often still depicted today.
The access to these incredible catacombs and funerary complex is privileged and exclusively granted to our company and our company's groups. An off the beaten path, beautiful and inspiring adventure you are sure to never forget!
Once the tour has ended, you will hop back on your comfortable chauffeur ride, and be taken back to the city centre.
