Seeing the More Unusual Sights of Rome


 
Travel & Tourism
When you think of travelling to Rome, the history of the city and its role as the head of one of the greatest empires will likely storm to the forefront of your mind. This is an entirely fair thing to consider when booking a holiday to Italy's capital city; but Rome is so much more than just historical settings and a backdrop dense in culture. You can also seek out the weird and wonderful hiding around every corner in Rome. Ciamipino Airport transfer journeys are the best way to get into the city quickly and efficiently without having to worry about contending with the famous Roman traffic. After you land in Rome, Ciampino Airport transfer shuttles can take you directly to your accommodation in the city centre so you can get started sightseeing straight away. Two of the most interesting and unique sites are the Catacombs of San Sebastian and the tomb of Caius Cestius.

The Catacombs of San Sebastiano

Begun in the second century A.D. the Catacombs of San Sebastiano are the ancient underground burial sites of Rome. Ciampino Airport transfer journeys may take you right over the top of the Catacombs of San Sebastiano without you even realising as they are completely hidden beneath the bustling modern city.

The first of the Christian catacombs were made outside the walls of the city, as burial within the city was not allowed. There are sixty such catacombs around the city, usually built along the roads. Many of them, like the Catacombs of San Sebastiano, are named after the saints who were buried there. Not only were the Catacombs of San Sebastiano used to house the bodies of Christians, they also became popular secular burial sites as well; during the Persecution, Christians were known to have hidden within them for their own safety.

The tomb of Caius Cestius

After spending a fascinating few hours strolling through the Catacombs, stay in theme and seek out the tomb of Caius Cestius. Also known as the Pyramid of Cestius, if you travel in on a Rome Ciampino Airport transfer, you will see this from a distance – ask your driver to point it out. Near the Porta San Paolo, the Pyramid of Cestius is built at a fork in the road and is part of the city's ancient fortification wall and, therefore, also one of the best preserved tombs. Built around 18 B.C. the pyramid was built for the magistrate Caius Cestius. It is made of white marble and has a base of 29.6 metres and reaches up 37 metres high. Inside is the burial chamber that was unfortunately plundered in ancient times; consequently, very few of the frescos that used to adorn the walls remain.

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct. If you’re looking for Ciampino airport transfers, Shuttle Direct provide pre-booked shuttles to major destinations all over Europe. Wherever you travel, Shuttle Direct can make sure that you don’t miss your car on your holiday abroad.
