What to expect

Visit one of the best preserved Roman graves in Italy on a 90-minute tour of the tombs of Pomponio Hylas, located near the Appian Way. You'll get exclusive access to the catacombs, discovered in 1883 by Pietro Campana.

Inside the Park of the Via Latina near the Appian Way, there are several underground burial chambers (columbarium) that date back from Roman times. Among these graves is a small and spectacularly preserved columbarium, discovered in 1883 by Pietro Campana. This columbarium is called Pomponius Hylas. As you descend into the small chamber, you'll be able to see its complex architecture, sculptures, mosaics, and amazing, well intact, frescos. A visit here is rarely taken by the average tourist and is truly a unique experience.
