We'll visit San Marciano crypt, its catacomb and the basilica of San Giovanni at closure! You will immerse yourself into over 1600 years of Siracusa history where Christians were buried all together under the ground during roman persecutions. Not scary enough? We will do all this in the darkness in winter and I will provide torches to do so. In summer will enjoy cool atmosphere inside! Through frescos and paintings, you will learn about lifestyle of the first Christian communities in Europe. This exclusive tour will be certainly one of the most amazing highlight of your visit to Sicily! Join me on this exclusive journey at the closing time :)
Early Christian history has always been one of my passions, that's why I moved to Rome for three years where I became doctor in Christian Archaeology. Siracusa, which owns the greatest early christian heritage after Rome one, has got charming catacombs which will enchant you for its uniqueness as enchanted me the first time. My experience as licensed local guide and my exclusive partnership with San Giovanni catacomb management has enabled me to guide and to share this magical experience with you.
We will go underground with torches to visit the places where over 1600 years ago early Christinas dug the first catacombs in Siracusa
