Hear stories from the early Christian era in Rome, and enjoy a rare, crowd free experience of the historic site—you’ll be visiting when the catacombs are closed to the public. This 2.5-hour catacombs tour includes all entrance fees, and is limited to 15 people for a personalized experience.

Make your way to the Piazza Barberini, where you’ll meet your guide at 5:45pm for a 6pm departure to the first stop of the day, the Museum and Crypt of Capuchins. Hear the story behind the macabre “Bone Chapel,” which is built with the remains of around 4,000 monks, and discover the beliefs and traditions that led to the chapel’s creation.

After your time in the Bone Chapel, continue to the Catacombs of Santa Priscilla in a private, air-conditioned minibus. Among Rome’s extensive network of catacombs, this site is renowned for holding the oldest-known image of the Virgin Mary. The Catacombs of Santa Priscilla were the original resting place for the remains of seven Popes, and the 8 miles (13 km.) of tunnels are illuminated with bright frescoes.

This 2.5-hour catacomb tour offers the once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore a fascinating historic site after it’s closed to the public, so you can experience the catacombs as they once were: dim, quiet, and peaceful. After you re-emerge into the Roman streets, your tour will conclude at Piazza Barberini, close to public transport and centrally-located attractions.

Great and very unusual experience! Antonella was an amazing guide. Two of our party felt intimidated and claustrophobic and were treated with utmost kindness and were allowed to wait in a safe warm area outside the catacombs. Well worth it as a once in a lifetime experience

This was a most enlightening and interesting tour helped by a quite outstanding guide - Kylie - who brought it all to life ( no pun intended!). She made the subject so interesting and informative and we were taken aback by her knowledge of all things Rome. Absolutely brilliant and made the trip.

Roberta was a careful, courteous, and knowledgeable professional from whom we learned a great deal from her. The downside of this tour was not in her control: the Capuchin crypts were so crowded that the various (already too large) groups were intermingled causing so much congestion that, disappointingly, we could not see everything being discussed by Roberta.

Visiting this venue at night was a plus. A lot less crowded and the guide was very well versed on the Catacombs. His English was good so it was not a struggle to get information and ask questions. It is a unique venue but one well worth the price. The take away from this venue is contemplation of the monks life both on Earth and Eternity.

It was a fascinating tour, and Mike from Walks of Italy tour group was outstanding. The tour wasn't scary or gruesome, but a very interesting lesson in history.

This was a really interesting look at a side of Rome that isn't quite as well-known or crowded. Our tour guide Mike was great -- very knowledgeable and managed to keep the whole tour pretty light despite the subject matter.
