Experience The Historic Catacombs of Rome

Catacombs, Italy! Walked down the dimly lit corridors and passageways. Lots of torches on the walls. Amazing what there is to see underground- and sooooo much of it. Very cold as well.

“Taken from the catacombs of Rome in the 17th century, the relics of twelve martyred saints were then attired in the regalia of the period before being interred in a remote church on the German/Czech border.” - Immortal, Toby de Silva (via Retronaut)
