"One of most unique place in..." Christian Rome Tip by Big-Damian

Christian Rome, Rome: 125 reviews and 207 photos


One of most unique place in Rome is the Catacombs of St. Callixtus (Crypt of the Popes), just outside the city limits of Rome. The Catacombs are the official burial place of the bishops of Rome. If you have the time, I recommend that everyone go tour the Catacombs. That is, if you don't get creeped out very easy. This place is a big underground burial. Just a big tomb where thousands of Christians were buried. While underground, you will see where they were laid to rest. Just many halls with different size holes in them. While on your tour, they will take you to where the popes were buried. No pictures are allowed, so you have to buy a post card.
