4.2/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
The Catacombs of Saint Sebastian is one of many catacombs in Rome. These underground burial places were first built in the first century CE to deal with the overcrowding in traditional cemeteries. Follow your tour guide through the tunnels and learn about the history of this underground burial ground. Begin your tour from the basilica that houses the marble tomb of St. Sebastian, for whom these catacombs are named. Wander through the dim underground passages and examine the Christian and pagan wall tombs, ancient graffiti, and many relics. To spend more time in the tunnels and see the relics more intimately, schedule a private tour--the catacombs are not accessible without a guide. Dress warmly, as temperatures are much cooler underground. Put The Catacombs of Saint Sebastian into our Rome vacation builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • It is not the conventional option, that makes it more interesting still. One descends to an ancient underground world in which different generations buried their ancestors. The cold below spread to nostalgia and puts you in the shoes of other civilizations. For lunch after Mr. massimo and his family you receive with the best predisposition in Hostaria Antica Roma.

  • I'm a fan of catacombs loved it! The tour is guided in multiple languages and ends in the church next to the catacombs, which is part of the same complex. The history of the site is very ancient, rich and interesting. Some people may have difficulty of locomotion in the catacomb, because the path is narrow and always makes approximately 15 degrees inside the catacombs.

  • Knowledgeable guide was clear, easy to understand, and interesting. The tour was just the right length. I left feeling like I learned a lot about a place I came knowing nothing about...and really enjoyed it!
  • Catacombs are super impressive and even if the walk through tour is way too short, it is totally worth it to visit
