The Catacombs entrance ticket
The Catacombs entrance ticket allows you to explore the underground of ancient Rome where the first Christians, victims of persecution, professed their beliefs and would bury their loved ones. For security reasons, being made up of extensive and dispersive cubicles, the catacombs are not open without the assistance of a guide or escort provided by the superintendence of the archaeological site. For this reason, you can take different types of guided tours which fees vary based on the length of the Tour.
