This church has had a long history, from the first basilica that was dedicated to St. Agnes at the site of her grave by Constantia during Roman times, a new church built under Pope Honorius in the seventh century, and the most recent major renovation completed under Pope Blessed Pius IX (1846-1878.)

We loved the catacombe tour. Lasted 30-45 minutes, great for short attention spans. Inexpensive - I think 8 euro for adults, 5 euro for children. Small group. No microphone, no earbuds needed, the guide talked directly to the group. The guide is easy to understand...More

Crypt inside church contains body of St Agnes whilst her head is in the Agnes in Agony church in Piazza Novona. So an opportunity to put the pieces together:) Tour guide speaks English very well. Small catacomb but many intact graves and exposed bones not...More

You don't have to make the trip just to see the church. There are enough beautifull churches in the city centre. I went there to see the catacombs (because of the positive comments I read). Unfortunally, the catacombs were already closed when I got there....More

One always tours catacombs as part of a group. At Sant'Agnese, the group consisted of 4 persons; along the Appian Way, groups consist of 12-20 persons. Along the Appian Way, guides are of wildly varying degrees of expertise; at Sant'Agnese, the short tour is conducted...More

We wouldn't even have gone here if we hadn't been staying right across the street. So glad we did! Between the ancient mausoleum of Constanza (daughter of Constantine), the beautiful St. Agnese (minor) basilica, and the absolutely amazing catacomb tour under the grounds, it was...More
