Hidden deep underground on the outskirts of Rome, the vast 2nd-century Catacombs of Rome (Catacombe di Roma) are some of the oldest burial tunnels in the world. Today, the narrow tunnels are eerily quiet and full of Roman history, including some of the best-preserved early Christian frescoes and sculptures—including the oldest known depiction of the Virgin Mary and, in the bone-adorned Capuchin Crypt, a Caravaggio.
