Pass By: Catacombs of Saint Callixtus, Via Appia Antica 110, 00179 Rome Italy
Catacombs of San Callixtus:
The Crypt of the Popes, or the Catacombs of Callixtus, were built after AD 150. It takes its name from the deacon Saint Callixtus, proposed by Pope Zephyrinus in the administration of the same cemetery - on his accession as pope, he enlarged the complex, and soon it became the official one for the Roman Church. The arcades, where more than fifty martyrs and sixteen pontiffs were buried, form part of a complex graveyard that occupies 15 hectares and is around 12 miles (20 km) long.
Pass By: Catacombe di Santa Domitilla, Via delle Sette Chiese 282, 00147 Rome Italy
Catacombs of St. Domitilla:
These are the oldest of Rome's underground burial networks, and the only ones to still contain bones. They are also the best preserved and one of the most extensive of all the Catacombs. Included in their passages are a 2nd-century fresco of the Last Supper and other valuable artifacts. There are around 4,000,000 bodies buried in St. Domitilla. They are the only Catacombs that have a subterranean Basilica.
Pass By: Catacombe San Sebastiano, Via Appia Antica 136, 00179 Rome Italy
Catacombs of St. Sebastian:
One of the smallest Christian cemeteries, the Catacombs of San Sebastiano have always been some of the most accessible catacombs and are thus some of the least preserved (of the four original floors, the first is almost completely gone). On the left end of the right hand wall of the nave of the primitive basilica (rebuilt in 1933 on ancient remains), arches to end the middle of the nave of the actual 13th-century church are visible, along with the outside of the apse of the Chapel of the Relics; whole and fragmentary collected sarcophagi (mostly dating from the 4th century) were found in excavations.
Pass By: Mausoleo di Cecilia Metella, Via Appia Antica, 161, 00178 Rome Italy
The Tomb of Caecilia Metella (from outside):
It was built during the 1st century BC to honor Caecilia Metella who was the daughter of Quintus Caecilius Metellus Creticus, a roman consul.
The Tomb of Caecilia Metella is one of the most well known and well preserved monuments along the Via Appia and a popular tourist site.
Pass By: Via Appia Antica, Via Appia, Rome Italy
The Appian Way was Europe’s first super highway and remains one of the best attractions in Rome. Possibly the oldest road still in existence, it was ancient Rome’s most important military and economic artery and it’s largely intact today!
