FULL DESCRIPTION

Just a short walking distance from the beautiful view of the Janiculum Hill, there is an underground world to discover. A little gem hidden underneath our feet in the neighborhood of Gianicolense, the Catacombs of San Pancrazio. Start this journey accompanied by an expert, entertaining tour guide to discover stories and experiences of the first Christian communities in Rome. The charming Basilica of San Pancrazio will open its doors to us: after visiting the church and learning about its history, we will enter the subterranean world and exclusively visit the catacombs. During this exciting experience you will learn stories about the first Martyrs and especially about Pancras from Phrygia, who came to Rome with his uncle Dionysus and was decapitated in 304 after refusing to sacrifice to gods. His body was abandoned and found by the Christian matrona Ottavilla, who buried him in the graveyard. The Catacomb of San Pancrazio became a place of pilgrimage during the Middle Ages. Ancient sources say that among the martyrs buried inside the catacombs there is also Sophia and her three daughters Faith, Hope and Charity, who rest in the socalled cubicle of St. Sophia. End this tour with a pleasant walk through the charming neighbourhood of Trastevere.
