What to Expect
Visit a part of Rome that few tourists ever see and explore the hidden and mysterious tombs of Pomponio Hylas. Follow a fascinating tour, led by an archaeologist, classical historian, medievalist, or certified speleologist for the city of Rome.
This 90-minute tour offers an exclusive visit of a catacomb that is usually closed to the public. You will go inside one of the best-preserved Roman graves in Italy, located inside the Park of the Via Latina near the Appian Way.
Among the several underground burial chambers (columbarium) that date back to the Roman times is a small and spectacularly preserved one that was discovered in 1883 by Pietro Campana. Descend into the small chamber to see its complex architecture, sculptures, mosaics, and amazingly intact frescoes.
