Our tour was a kind of private tour. Nobody but us had booked this tour, so we were driven with a car instead of a minibus. The tour was conducted by MEA Tours, our guide looked after us very well and we experienced and saw many great things.

We were lucky to have a travel guide just for the two of us, really great. Many interesting explanations. Since the St. Sebastian catacombs were closed for 1 month at that time, we visited the catacombs San Callisto, right next door. Very impressive.

Description

Sit back and enjoy the comfortable bus ride to the jewel of the Via Appia, the catacombs of St. Sebastian. In addition to the catacombs, you will also visit the Basilica of St. Sebastian itself, before admiring the beauty of the Lazio countryside just a few miles from Rome. According to a legend, during the time of persecution the mortal remains of the apostles St. Peter and St. Paul were laid out in the catacombs. On this tour your guide will introduce you to the façade of the Basilica before you enter to see the tomb and sculpture of the saint after which it was named - St. Sebastian

Then you will enter the Catacombs of Saint Sebastian, which are the first underground burial sites of this ancient road. Let your guide lead you through five different levels of niches where the remains were buried tightly wrapped in sheets and hidden by tombstones.

After this experience, follow the Via Appia, where you can still see the traces of earlier carriages that were on their way to southern Italy. Arriving at the tomb of Cecilia Metella, you will be informed about the history of the place, which later became the castle of the Caetani family

The last stop is the largest aqueduct ever built by the Romans, the magnificent Aqueduct Park. You can admire the Marcio Aqueduct, which is still in operation today, surrounded by many other waterworks with their majestic arches stretching for many miles
