Julia made this tour very fun and enjoyable despite the dark nature of the history that surrounds it.
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!
Again a wonderful guide, funny and very knowledgable. Well worth doing
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.
We were lucky enough to have Melanie as our guide. She was highly knowledgeable about the sites we visited and very welcoming. She immediately learned the names of our entire group and offered us insider tips for Rome as well.
We enjoyed the tour and the information imparted of knowledge learnt about those times.
great tour and an excellent guide made this tour one of the best
I wasn't sure what to think of this when my friend said she wanted to go. I LOVED IT! I might seem macabre, but it was actually one of the most beautiful, sacred sites of all we saw in Italy. It's definitely interesting and includes some of the most precious frescoes that will take your breath away. Our guide, Andreas, was very passionate about the tour and the beauty of the area. He couldn't have done a better job.
This was so cool. It was done by Walks of Italy tour guide Rebecca. This was so interesting but not spooky or weird. Just an amazing experience.
Unique experience,I will never forget,should turn back anytime!
This was a great tour and really interesting. Our guide was really passionate about the subject and really brought to life what it would have been like in those times and for the life of me I have forgotten her name, so Im so sorry! Small groups which was really good. Would highly recommend this tour, very moving.
One of our favorite trips of the tour, our guide was energetic and full of knowledge. Would definitely recommend.
Our guide Rebecca was fantastic, very knowledgeable and passionate about the Capuchin Monks, their chapel and the Catacombs. I will be recommending this tour to anyone going to Rome.
This tour was very interesting. The bone chapel is at the start of the tour and our guide did an excellent job of describing why early Christian monks decorated with human bones. We then got to go into the catacombs and explore ancient Christian chapels and burial grounds that were hidden to escape detection and persecution. This tour was one of the hidden highlights of our trip to Rome and a must see if you have the time. It requires special permission from the Vatican so this tour is truly exclusive and an amazing opportunity.
Very much enjoyed this tour! I loved the history, sites, and found our guide to very pleasant and educated. If you have an interest in the macabre, you'll likely enjoy this experience.
This tour was very interesting and seeing the bone chapel was not at all gory but a fascinating insight to medieval society and how they managed their dead. This tour was a bit different to the usual sights and good for those who have already done the more well -known tours, which was why we chose it. We have already seen the main catacombs and these ones were just as interesting. It was an evening tour so not too busy either. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided a great experience.
