Overview

This church has had a long history, from the first basilica that was dedicated to St. Agnes at the site of her grave by Constantia during Roman times, a new church built under Pope Honorius in the seventh century, and the most recent major renovation completed under Pope Blessed Pius IX (1846-1878.)

This is worth the trip especially if you can’t stand the hourds of desperate tourists at the main roman sites. The church is a tiny 7th century gem, the catacombs tour is short but interesting but the crowning glory is the mausoleum. Stunning for being...More

This lovely church and catacombs are not always opern, it is better to look after when is it open. It is worth to visit, and easy acces by metro.

We loved the catacombe tour. Lasted 30-45 minutes, great for short attention spans. Inexpensive - I think 8 euro for adults, 5 euro for children. Small group. No microphone, no earbuds needed, the guide talked directly to the group. The guide is easy to understand...More

Walking through catacombs that are among the oldest in Rome, on a tour with only the four of us in our party and a very knowledgeable guide, this was a highlight of our stay in Rome. Add a lovely church and peaceful garden--perfect morning. It...More

When we arrived at the church of Sant Agnese, we discovered there was a funeral taking place, but nevertheless we were able to take a guided tour (in English) of the catacombs. The tour took 30 minutes and cost 8 Euros per person. We felt...More

Take a brake and visit Sankt Agnes. We had a 30 minute guided tour. The guide was a young lady speaking perfectly English. We went under the church and visited the Christian catacombs. No bones but a lot of history. Go there if you need...More

Crypt inside church contains body of St Agnes whilst her head is in the Agnes in Agony church in Piazza Novona. So an opportunity to put the pieces together:) Tour guide speaks English very well. Small catacomb but many intact graves and exposed bones not...More

You don't have to make the trip just to see the church. There are enough beautifull churches in the city centre. I went there to see the catacombs (because of the positive comments I read). Unfortunally, the catacombs were already closed when I got there....More

Beautiful place from 4th century with a quiet garden that leads to Mausoleo di Santa Constanza, also part of same complex. You can take tour into the well preserved catacombs below the church, almost 2000 years old. The tourguide is very knowledgeable and explains a...More

One always tours catacombs as part of a group. At Sant'Agnese, the group consisted of 4 persons; along the Appian Way, groups consist of 12-20 persons. Along the Appian Way, guides are of wildly varying degrees of expertise; at Sant'Agnese, the short tour is conducted...More
