Very exciting guided tour, which gave an insight into an unknown part of the city. Very informative and friendly. For people who want to see more than just the standard program

Meeting point at the Barberini fountain easy to find. Marta, our guide, explained everything super competently. It is also pleasant that the group consists of a maximum of 15 people. Unfortunately it could not be recognized in advance whether this tour is also available in German. I am already fluent in English, but with only "native speakers" it will be difficult. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Your experience

Highlights

  • View of the Capuchin Bone Tomb
  • A cemetery literally built from the bones of 4,000 Capuchin monks
  • Go back in time at the Lasagne Church of San Nicola in Carcere

Description

The tour starts in the most interesting (and paradoxically the least visited) catacomb of the city. Old Christians were buried here when their religion was still forbidden and they were considered enemies of the state. The catacomb contains extraordinary frescoes, miles of creepy tunnels and the oldest representation of the Virgin Mary in the world. Your expert, guide, handpicked for knowledge of the catacombs, will lead your small group of 18 people or less through these wonderfully historic and atmospheric tunnels while he tells you the history of early Christianity. Large groups simply can't fit into these areas, so take advantage of this truly unique access.

We continue on to one of the most extraordinary and exciting sights of Rome, the Capuchin Bone Crypt. The cemetery, decorated with bones and remains of some 4,000 Capuchin monks, is a breathtaking representation of life and death. Although it may seem macabre, you will learn why the monks consider the display to be life-affirming

Finally you will visit one of the hidden treasures of Rome. The Basilica of San Nicola in Carcere is a journey both underground and into the past, but this basilica is historically much more important. It was built in the 10th century on the site of three temples from the first century BC, which themselves were the heart of an ancient Roman fruit and vegetable market from the 4th century BC. Many of the original temples, including their marble columns, were built into the structure of the existing basilica, but remained exposed, so that today, when visiting them, one can literally descend through the plains of time.

With comfortable, air-conditioned transportation and a small group of 18 or less people, your only task is to immerse yourself in the thrill and wonder of underground Rome. Our expert guides were chosen for this experience because of their knowledge and love of history. They are the perfect companions through our most eerie and mysterious tour.
