This Is How You Can See The Roman Catacombs While You're In Rome

Catacombs have taken on a mystical and spooky nature. Today there are catacombs under many of the world's old cities like in Paris and in Odesa in Ukraine. But the original catacombs are the Catacombs of Rome. They are ancient and were used for underground burials in and around Rome. Hundred of thousands of early Christians were buried in these passways underneath the eternal city. Some of them are massive and only a select few of them are open to the public today.
