Itinerary

Greet your guide at a central Rome location after the Roman Catacombs have closed to the public. As you descend to the underground tunnels, you’ll hear the story of the macabre Bone Chapel, built using the remains of more than 4,000 monks.

Explore the tunnels in relative tranquility, visiting the Capuchin Crypt and the Catacombs of Saint Priscilla, and relish a crowd-free environment that adds to the eerie atmosphere of the Roman Catacombs.

Your tour concludes at your original departure point.
