What to expect

The purpose of this City Sightseeing Rome tour is to connect the most important sites of the city center to the Domitilla Catacombs with a green bus (natural gas), with an audio guide service available on board. This new service aims to respect the environment while offering a sustainable and ecological kind of tourism.

Our package offers you the easiest way to reach the Domitilla Catacombs, the largest ones in Rome with about 17 km (10.5 miles) of tunnels, more than 150,000 burials and the underground 4th-century church.

Visiting this archeological site will make you find out more and more about the early Christians’ life, their belief in the resurrection and eternal life and their strong relationship with God, as you will see from the numerous wall paintings and inscriptions.

The guided tour is available in 5 languages (Italian, English, French, Spanish and German) and all our guides are professional and qualified tourist guides.
