What You Can Expect

Rome Super Saver: Skip-the-Line Crypts and Catacombs plus Ghost and Mystery Walking Tour

Crypts and Catacombs plus Ghost and Mystery Walking Tour

Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Tour (3.5 hours)
Your afternoon tour starts by meeting your guide and heading outside the city center to the Appian Way, an ancient road that was once an important thoroughfare leading in and out of Rome. When you arrive at the Domitilla Catacombs (Catacomb di Santa Domitilla), sail past the entrance queue with your skip-the-line ticket, and descend into the tunnels with your guide.

As you explore this subterranean burial site, learn about the funeral customs of Rome’s early Christians and how they used these chambers to worship in secret when Christianity was prohibited. Then travel to the Basilica of San Clemente, where you again have skip-the-line access to explore this unique church made up of three structures built on top of one another. 

Your last destination is the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione, home to the Capuchin Crypts. Inside the crypt museum, you can see St Francis in Meditation, a painting by Caravaggio, as well as other artifacts related to Italy's patron saint, St Francis. Then enter the crypts themselves, where you’ll be perhaps awed, appalled, fascinated or revolted by a chapel made completely of human bones.

Your tour ends outside the chapel. At this point you have about three hours of free time to have dinner on your own and relax however you wish before the second half of your Super Saver begins.

Ghost and Mystery Walking Tour of Rome (1.5 hours)
When the sun goes down on the city, start your evening tour of Rome’s ghostly sites at Sant’Andrea della Valle, a church near the Tiber River. Meet your guide and set off on foot to see the Eternal City’s famous landmarks under the enigmatic cover of night.

Follow your guide along the historical center’s winding lanes, listening to spine-tingling tales about spirit sightings and eerie legends while you admire the illuminated cityscape. Walk by Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, through Campo de’ Fiori and past Palazzo Farnese, and stroll along Via Giulia and Via del Governo Vecchio on your way to Piazza Navona, one of the city’s liveliest squares.

Your tour ends outside Castel Sant’Angelo, a daunting structure that was commissioned as a private mausoleum but has also spent time as a prison and a pope’s residence. Hear about its shadowy history before your guide bids you goodnight, leaving you at a central location to continue your night out in Rome on your own.

Really interesting, if a little creepy at times. Well worth doing.

Brilliant although we didn't go on the walking tour as I felt unwell with a horrendous cold and it threatened rain.... but the first part with the Capuchin museum and the chapels filled with ornaments of bones was just mind blowing... Not macabre when you hear the reasoning behind it and the beliefs.... the church on 3 levels was absolutely amazing and such an example of the archaeological lasagna that they speak of in Rome... the catacombs was fantastic too... we got there on a coach which took about 20 mins but our guide told us facts and stories to pass the time... BEWARE the toilets at the catacombs.... yuck..... all in all i would recommend as a very interesting and informative tour... well worth the money

Check in was orderly and simple. Guides were outstanding. Crypts and Catacombs tour was very interesting. Only a couple of very, very minor issues: couldn't really hear our guide after we went into the church and before we went down into the crypts service was being held during the tour, and the coach was a bit stale smelling. Otherwise, awesome tour.
