  • The grave you visit only by appointment (to be done well in advance) and currently are allowed only 12 people at a time; the tour lasts about 90 minutes, but we were not allowed to enter even in coexisting Christian Catacombs, medieval building in the town and in the above. Nevertheless the site worth visiting for much of history that contains. It was fully illustrated by an excellent guide, expert in archaeology and Roman Antiquities. The visit is exciting, both for the shape of the site, for the adventurous story of her discovery that-especially-for the fact that you are on the site where the remains were collected of the great Scipio Carthage conquerors who contributed to make great Rome (III b.c.), and their families. Names that we read in history books become so people real, tangible (though their bodies are gone), close to us in their physicality because their graves bear witness to the birth, life and death are real and carry them so the incorporeality of the story away to the reality of their humanity, and the intimacy of death approaches them like nothing else ever.

  • There are very few opportunities to visit these tombs and Clare, the guide who organized it, was very good at giving us much explanation and historical references in spite of this, the visit is rather poor, it doesn't add anything to the wonder of Rome

  • One of the attractions for which Rome is truly incomparable and unreachable, a real place and not just for lovers of Archeology. Among other things, is surrounded by greenery in the context of the Aurelian walls, near Porta San Sebastiano, the via Latina and the via Appia that retain the charm of 2,000 years ago. Result of archaeological accommodation who recovered and developed two important funerary evidence of ancient Rome: the columbarium of Pomponius Hylas and the tomb of the scipios. A long Central Boulevard that starts from the entrance on via di Porta Latina, rich of pines and cypresses, holm oaks, laurels and MyrtleS shading archaeological sites. The rich sarcophagi, one of which was decorated with Doric friezes and with inscription in verse saturni, unearthed in sepolcro degli Scipioni can sit back mostly to the Vatican museums and other museums; in the 19th century not far was discovered the columbarium of Pomponius Hylas, with mosaics and frescoes, dating back to the first century. d.c.; the two sites are now linked to a single visit and coordinated. The importance should be emphasized of the scipios, one of the most distinguished families of the Roman Republic.
