Crypts And Catacombs Of Rome Skip-the-line Tour

Take a step back in time as you explore the early Christian art, crypts and catacombs.

This tour is the first of its kind! An original Crypts and Catacombs tour that will take you to explore early Christian art in the Catacombs, built during a time when Christianity was illegal and considered a dangerous cult, whose members were executed as heretics and buried as martyrs. Your guide will lead you through the dark tunnels of Roman catacombs that are long corridors with hundreds of burial chambers, from modest singles to extravagant family tombs.

Continuing your mysterious journey, your group will also get to explore Basilica San Clemente (referred to by some as “the lasagna”). It is a 12th-century Basilica built on top of the remains of a 4th-century Basilica. The 4th-century Basilica was built on top of a 2nd-century cult chapel which happened to be built on a Roman street in the first century. You will feel as if you are going back in time with every different level of the Basilica you visit. Your expert English-speaking guide will be right alongside you giving you and in-depth commentary, bringing each level to life.

Your tour ends with a visit the truly eerie Capuchin Crypt – a fascinating chapel hidden away in central Rome decorated with the bones of 4,000 Capuchin Monks. Intricately decorated with the bones of 4,000 Capuchin monks. You will see real skulls and bones that make up the decoration such as the bone chandeliers in the crypt. Let your guide bring the macabre 'Bone Chapel' to life, this will be the biggest surprise of this tour that will stick with you long after you have gone home. The recent addition of an official museum means that your visit is enriched by an encounter with Caravaggio’s magnificent canvas ‘St. Francis in Meditation’ and relics from the life of St. Francis himself and some of his followers.
