What to Expect
Escape the crowds of the Colosseum and Vatican, and explore the darker side of Rome on a 3.5-hour small group tour of the ancient catacombs and crypts. Venture to parts of the city that few visitors ever see, traveling between sites by air-conditioned minibus.

Your guide will take you to 3 memorable sites, each revealing the extraordinary secrets of Ancient Rome. They include the labyrinthine Roman Catacombs that were part burial ground and part refuge for the persecuted early Christians of Ancient Rome.

Visit the Capuchin Crypt, known locally as the “Bone Chapel,” and marvel at the walls, decorated with the bones more than 4,000 monks.

Descend through 4 layers of history at the Basilica of San Clemente, starting with a beautiful 12th-century church and the 11th-century church it was built on. Continue to the 4th-century cult temple beneath, and on to a fully-intact Roman street from the 1st century.
