Tour Details

Rome, an ancient city built over the centuries on its own ruins, using the foundations of pre-existing buildings. A true historical treasure to discover, hidden about ten meters below the modern street level.

The Basilica of San Clemente is one of the first attractions you will visit, famous for its two underground levels, its mosaics, medieval paintings and the Roman ruins. Immediately afterwards you will head to the oldest Roman consular road: the Appian way. Twenty-four centuries old, the ancient pavement is still intact, and all around the famous ruins of the Tomb of Cecilia Metella and the Villa of the Emperor Maxentius.

The largest archaeological park in Europe and site of the most famous Christian Catacombs in Rome. A visit to the Catacombs of San Callisto or San Sebastiano cannot be missed. You will go down the corridors excavated for centuries by Christians as a burial and prayer place, abandoned and rediscovered in modern times. A unique place in the world to bring back home an unforgettable memory.

You will meet your driver at your hotel, B&B, private apartment at 8AM/9AM. Our drivers are knowledgeable about the history and the culture. They will explain the sites from inside the vehicle but they are NOT authorized (Italian Law) to walk with you inside churches, museums and ruins. 

At the end of the tour (3PM/4PM) your driver will take you back to your hotel, B&B, private apartment, train station or FCO/CIA airport.

Once you book online, you can contact our office soon after in order to customize your tour. You will let us know about attractions, transportation and any special requests and questions you may have.



If you wish you can book “The Underground VIP tour of Rome”, which includes a private licensed Tour-Guide. Your private guide will hop-off the vehicle with you at each stop and walk you through the attractions to provide the most complete insights of every attraction. 

All our Tour-Guides are qualified and licensed (Blue-Badge) to operate without limits all over Italy. Our tour guides are professional, friendly, courteous and experienced with enough knowledge and personal experiences to give you a unique and unforgettable tour.
