The Crypts and Catacombs of Rome
The Underside of Rome
Scheduled Tour

  • Our guides have rare exclusive permission to give tours of the catacombs themselves.
  • Visit the eerie Capuchin Crypt – an impressive, little known chapel decorated with the bones of thousands of Capuchin Monks.
  • This is the original Crypts and Catacombs tour, similar tours are just copies.

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 Church of San Clemente (built over an ancient fourth century church built over an even older Roman house containing Christian artifacts and a pagan temple -- with ruins reaching 57 feet deep).
