What You Can Expect

Exclusive Catacombs After Closing and Bone Chapel Tour

Catacombs

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.

Our tour was well organized and punctual. We started out at the Crypts, which were surprisingly crowded, since the tour was an after hours tour. Then we took a shuttle to the Catacombs, and had a great tour there. Not crowded at all. Our guide Amy was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Crypts, Catacombs and Rome in general. We highly recommend this tour!

Our guide, Amy, was very knowledgeable and passionate, more so than any tour guide we have ever been with. She was very engaging, and worked to draw members of our small group into the discussion. He descriptions of historical context were very respectful of differing faith traditions. She also had a lovely sense of humor. The Cupuchin Monks crypts and Catacombs were fascinating. Ive studied their history, and still learned a great deal. The after hours small group was well worth it. We never felt crowded or rushed. My wife has some mobility issues, and Amy took care to make sure my wife was ok. We have taken many tours In many places. This was by far the best.

What a surreal and unique opportunity to see and learn abut the catacombs. Our guide was so passionate about the catacombs, sharing her personal experiences was a special touch. As we walked through the bone chapel I had a calm sense come over me. You couldn't help but wonder who were these people and what type of person could construct such awe-inspiring sculptures. If you have the opportunity to take this tour I highly recommend it! .

Amy our guide gets 5 stars - she was an amazing guide and passionate about history. Tour took us to the Capuchin Chapel which was interesting but in my opinion, not as nice as the catacombs in Paris. We then got on a small bus to visit the site of a catacomb north of Rome maybe 20 min ride in traffic. It was interesting to learn about the place and how burial rituals, frescos. Amy our guide was fantastic and explained the importance of the site. The tour was extremely organized, provided head sets to hear better, and was on time! If you are looking for a unique experience this may be it.

Fantastic! Loved every minute of these tours. Kinda creepy and fantastic none the less. Tour guide was awesome! Since it was over about 8:00 or so-our guide was also able to recommend a great restaurant that we ended up eating at twice while in Rome. So, she went above and beyond!
