For one day each year, the seven catacombs of Rome are free for the public. On March 2, pilgrims will line the Appian Way waiting to enter the ancient tombs underground.

The theme for this 7th edition of the Day of the Catacombs is “From memory to prayer” and is part of Pope Francis' initiative for a year of preparation for the 2025 Jubilee.

Visitors are invited to reflect on the lives of these early Christians who were killed for their faith and buried here. The Pope has emphasized the important impact those who have died have on people today.

POPE FRANCIS
Let's go home today with this double memory: the memory of the past, of those of us who are gone. And the memory of the future, the path in which we're going.

With an online booking, visitors can spend the day walking in the footsteps of these Christians as tour guides bring the stories of these early martyrs to life.
