Capuchin Crypt - Basilica of San Clemente - Catacombs

Discover imperial and early Christian Rome by peeling back layers and millenniums of history as you descend into the Eternal city's underground burial chambers, its long winding catacombs and its crypts. Go below and beyond to a time when Christianity was considered a simple cult whose members were executed as pagans and buried as martyrs.

The one and only tour that takes you to crypts and catacombs from different historical eras, in diverse locations and with varying styles.

Much of what Rome has to offer is buried underground - and through this tour, our guests can discover the underside of Rome through three select sites an exclusive viewing of The Cappuccini Crypt (chapel decorated entirely by human bones), Domitilla or San Callisto Catacombs (ancient Christian burial ground) and the Basilica of San Clemente (built over an ancient 12th century church built over an even older Roman house containing Christian artifacts and a pagan temple - with ruins reaching 57 feet deep).

The Capuchin Crypts, the Basilica of San Clemente, and the San Domitilla or San Callisto Catacombs.

    Andy was a wonderful guide. His excitement and knowledge of the sites made us feel like we were experiencing the happenings of the past. Given the time for the tour, he answered all our questions, was mindful of all the guests needs, and ha...s a wonderful way of bringing the story to life. I would most assuredly request Andy for all additional tours in the Rome area, including private ones. One of, if not the best guides we have had in our month long stay in Europe! We have taken 7 tours, and he is by far the best! Read full review

    Rebecca was both informative and warm in her presentation. Her knowledge is second to none and made the tour feel like you were part of the history itself. Rebecca also made it light-hearted as well, some tours you can be talked down too, b...ut not this one. We felt like we had learned a lot and appreciated her open nature. Would love to be on a tour with her again when we next go back to Rome. Read full review

    Katrina was fantastic. Extremely well informed, entertaining , respectful of all the cultural and religious nuances intrinsic to such a tour, and charming. We and our young adult children were still jet lagged and she still kept us all wide... awake and fascinated. Thank you so much! Read full review
