Vatican will Open Historic, Pompeii-Like Necropolis to Public

Last edited 2nd February 2014

Few people are aware that under the Vatican you can find the historic necropolis of Via Triumphalis. It's a Roman cemetery located near the Circus of Nero, where, according to tradition, St. Peter was martyred. Starting this month of January, the necropolis will open to the public. It's so well preserved that experts often refer to it as a "Roman Pompeii.”
