What You Can Expect

Exclusive Catacombs After Closing and Bone Chapel Tour


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.

definately a night to remember and a highly recommended tour to do for those who love history and creepy things.
no photos allowed in the bone chapel but the ornate designs using human remains on the walls and ceilings of the chapel are really a sight to behold.
the catacombs are a maze of dark tunnels, eerie passage ways and graves dotted everywhere you look. but dont let that turn you off it. its absolutely amazing to hear and see what is right under our feet in the streets of Rome.
our guide was an archaeology student and a wealth of knowledge.
highly recommend doing this at dark, after closing hours tour rather than during the day. it just makes it that more special.

The Bone Chapel and Catacombs Tour on Jan. 3rd was amazing! Our guide was incredibly, patient, friendly and knowledgeable! We made several stops and and got the real insiders tour. The tour of the chapel was fantastic, haunting, so informative and definitely NOT to be missed! The added bonus was seeing these incredible sites at night! Our guide provided so many details and insider tips and every part of the tour was simply outstanding. It was a highlight of the trip and I very much look forward to visiting Rome again, and this will be something I book again! This is a tour not to be missed and worth every penny!

Absolutely fascinating. My 12-year-old son loved this tour. Seeing the catacombs at night was perfect no lines or crowds, you can really take your time and absorb it. The bone chapel is amazing, not at all creepy or morbid as one might expect, but a true expression of love and devotion...and now we know the origin of Cappuccino!

Incredible sights! The size of the catacombs are mind boggling. It is difficult to wandering through them when they were lit by only small oil lamps. The elaborate designs in the Bone Chapel were impressive.

Our English guide was fantastic. She shared information that I hadn't even heard of. All of us truly enjoyed this tour.

Third time in Rome, first time in the Crypts. What an amazing experience. Traveling with a 13 year old grandson, so tried to find tours that were a little different. This one fit the bill and it was fascinating. Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and informative information about the Bone Chapel. Onto the Catacombs where she provided us with an in depth tour. I had visited this particular Catacomb before and toured with a docent from the facility. The Viator guide was able to provide a much more informative tour. If you are a first time visitor to Rome or on a return trip, this is a tour not to be missed. Definitely a must-do.

Andreas was our tour guide, and he knew everything about the catacombs and Capuchin bone chapel. Getting to see one of those places that you only see on TV shows was really special, but Andreas made it fascinating.
