Crypts and catacombs of Rome

Crypts and Catacombs Walking Tour introduces you to a Rome you would have left without knowing otherwise.

These Catacombs are incredibly extensive, reaching as far as 17 kilometres. Some of these are still inaccessible, so even more secrets lie buried under the very path you walk on.
