Duration of tour: 8 hours 25 minutes

The Tour

We start our Crypts and Catacombs Rome Tour at the ancient Roman Catacombs. Dating all the way back to the 2nd century AD, this extensive network of tunnels snaking beneath the city was once both a burial ground and a hiding place for the first Christians in Rome. Established in the days when Nero was famed for torturing Christians, the tunnels became a place for refuge as much as for burials and celebrations. The next stop is the Basilica San Clemente, another site that few visitors ever see. Your guide will begin with the tale of a priest who thought he heard running water inside the basilica. We end this part of our tour on a high note, with a visit to the Capuchin Crypt , known locally as the Bone Chapel. It was here that the Capuchin monks have used the bones of 4,000 of their brothers to decorate the walls and ceilings. Enjoy some free time to have dinner at a local restaurant or to go for a stroll in the historical center of Rome, experiencing the city at its most enchanting time or admiring an unforgettable sunset. As darkness sets in over Rome, a different city comes to light and, with our expert English speaking story tellers, you will traverse the Tiber and wander across piazzas, listening to unknown stories of murders, executions, and betrayals. You will see the house of the most notorious murderer ever to work in the Eternal City and visit the bridge that, according to the legend, is haunted by the ghost of the female Pope.
