Close to our Hotel is the famous Catacomb of Domitilla. There are approximately sixty ancient catacombs in Rome, thereof the Catacombs of Domitilla are the largest labyrinth of underground tombs..

These tombs were built in the first and second century after Christ and are not only of Christian origin.
In some of the rooms perfectly preserved frescoes with classical Christian motifs can be found.

In the 4th century after Christ a basilica was built in the catacomb of Domitilla dedicated to the Saints Nereus and Achilles.
