Discover the legendary "regina viarum" - the Queen of Roads - known to us today as the Appian Way. Dating back to 312 B.C., this ancient marvel was crafted by the esteemed consul Appius Claudius Ciecus, paving the way for centuries of travelers.

Embark on a journey through time as we traverse the first 8 miles from the Gate of Saint Sebastian, immersed in the rustic beauty of the Roman countryside. Here, amidst the tranquil landscape, lies a treasure trove of history. Marvel at the intricate burial monuments, each telling a story of Roman tradition and culture. Stand in awe before the majestic Tomb of Cecilia Metella, and gaze upon the grandeur of the Villa of Emperor Massentius, where his private Circus and the solemn Tomb of his son Romulus await.

Delve deeper into the mysteries of the past as we explore the Catacombs, hidden beneath the earth like a labyrinth of secrets. These underground chambers, once called "Catacombs" by pagan Romans, were the sacred resting places of early Christians, bearing witness to a rich tapestry of faith and belief.

Join us on this exclusive tour, where private transportation and expert guidance ensure an unforgettable experience. From the winding roads of antiquity to the hallowed halls of the Catacombs, let history come to life before your eyes. 

Please note that the Catacombs may present narrow passages and confined spaces, adding an element of adventure to our exploration.
