Description

Discover Rome's catacombs and crypts on this guided tour that reveals the relics hidden underneath the Italian capital.

You will begin your underground exploration with one of the funerary chambers below Rome to see the catacombs where the first Christian martyrs, condemned to death for their faith, were buried.

Then you'll move on to the Basilique San Nicola in Carcere. Your guide will tell you anecdotes about these emblematic monuments and explain in detail the context for understanding the cult sites and historic burial customs.

Finally, you will visit the Capuchin crypt, whose walls are lined with the remains of almost 4,000 monks of the Franciscan Capuchin order.

This service ends at Piazza Barberini or at the exit of San Nicola in Carcere.
