  • We loved the catacombe tour. Lasted 30-45 minutes, great for short attention spans. Inexpensive - I think 8 euro for adults, 5 euro for children. Small group. No microphone, no earbuds needed, the gui...  more »

  • Not part of the regular tourist hitlist. But definitely worth getting off the beaten path.
  • A beautiful hidden gem.
  • The Basilica di Sant'Agnese Fuori le Mura (Basilica of St. Agnes Outside the Walls) is a 7th century church in Rome. It is notable for its mosaics, shrine of the virgin martyr St. Agnes, and catacombs. The current basilica, as rebuilt by Honorius in the mid-7th century, stands over an early Christian catacomb. In the 4th century, the soft rock was hollowed out around Saint Agnes's tomb to create a gathering space, probably for her family to observe the anniversary of her death. The visits of her family and friends spread early to others in Rome, and the site became a place of pilgrimage. By 340, Costanza, daughter of emperor Constantine, enlarged the underground area and built a large private mausoleum over it which is now known as the "mausoleo di Santa Costanza." According to legend, Constanza had been afflicated with leprosy and was cured after praying at the tomb of St. Agnes. The church of Saint Agnes was then built next to the mausoleum in the 7th century. The floor level of the 7th-century church is at the level of the catacomb floor, and the public street entrances are at the level of the second floor gallery. The body of St. Agnes lies in a silver sarcophagus that can be seen in the Basilica of St. Agnes Outside the Walls. Her head is in the Church of Sant’ Agnese in Agone in the Piazza Navona.
  • Attended a baptism ... It is well taken care of. and particular.

  • A place that really deserves! Fascinating beautiful Basilica and catacombs. Shame to visit the latter there is found in the usual Roman Organization, the first time I was off the hook because Sundays are closed, then I organized during the week and at the box office have tried to discourage me and leave me out, because I arrived at 16.35 and their close at 17. I find this shameful, we are the country with more art in the world and we act so with tourists!?
