Stop first for a walk with your guide through the countryside near the southern edge of ancient Rome. Admire the attractive Italian scenery outside the city and perhaps take time to capture the landscape through the lens of your camera.
Continue on to Rome’s ancient Catacombs of San Callisto or San Sebastiano. The Catacombs of San Callisto were built in the 2nd century and named after the deacon Saint Callixtus, while San Sebastiano is a small Christian cemetery and one of Rome’s most accessible catacombs. Explore the underground tunnels with your guide, hear of their history and gain insight into the burial techniques prevalent those centuries ago.
Leaving the Catacombs behind and travel onward to admire Rome’s remaining aqueducts. The Romans were masters of engineering and the aqueducts still standing today are testament to their skills. Listen as your guide explains how and why the aqueducts were built here and marvel at the amazing feat of engineering they represent.
After three hours exploring the Catacombs and countryside along Rome’s ancient Appian Way, return to your original departure point to conclude your tour.

Amazing to see the catacombs and walk where ancient Roman's walked and were buried. And driving down the old Appian Antiqua that my father has talked about driving for years and years was special, especially since we had my almost 90 year old father with us to see it one more.
