Small-Group Hidden Gems and Catacombs of Rome Guided Tour

This special guided tour is designed for those who want to enjoy a different Rome, far from the most touristic places, but still full of wonders, moving between sites in a comfortable and air-conditioned van. In a small group of only 8 or less people, your experience in Rome will be intimate and relaxed.
First, you will visit the Catacomb of Callixtus, notable for containing the Crypt of the Popes, which once contained the tombs of several popes from the 2nd to 4th centuries. The cemetery complex is spread over five floors in some points and its galleries have a development of over 10 km.
Continuing with our tour, we will discover the Appian Way. Located in the park of the same name, the Appian Way keeps a historical, archaeological, and architectural heritage unique in the world. Walking among these 2300 years old extraordinary testimonies is an unforgettable experience to try at least once in a lifetime.
Next, the Aventine Hill awaits us. The Aventine hill is located near the Circus Maximus and hosts a quiet, elegant neighborhood dotted with villas surrounded by greenery, away from the chaos of the more touristic districts. Do not miss on this hill a visit to the municipal rose garden, a romantic walk in the Orange Garden and a peek from the famous keyhole of the door of Santa Maria del Priorato di Malta, from which you can enjoy a beautiful glimpse of the Basilica of San Peter.
After that, we will see from outside the Pyramid of Cestius. The Pyramid of Cestius, the only surviving pyramid in Rome, is testament to the influence of ancient Egyptian culture on the Roman Empire! We will visit this miraculous piece of history from outside.
We won’t miss the Janiculum, one of the best locations in Rome for a scenic view of central Rome with its domes and bell towers.
At the end of our tour, we will stop in Piazza Campo de’ Fiori, one of the main squares of Rome. It is lively both during the day with its flower, fruit, and vegetable market, and by night, when the terraces are packed with people.
The most satisfying part of our tour is that you will discover lesser-known places and you will see the “real Rome”. You will see more than the average visitor, from the famous Catacombs to the little hidden gems of the Eternal City. So, if you want to have a unique experience in Rome, take a ride with us and let us share our city with you, making you feel like a real local!
