The catacombs are interesting, and the crypts of the Capucin monks are fascinating in their macabre way, but the highlight of this tour is the multi-level look at San Clemente. It's a basilica from the middle ages built on top of a 1st century basilica on top of a Villa from ancient Rome, and you can explore the different layers, moving down through the centuries. Really fascinating look at Roman and religious history.
Well organized tour with a very knowledgeable guide and wonderful bus driver who got us through the Roman traffic! Interesting stops both inside Rome and outside as well. Beautiful 12th century church with a 4th century church in its lowest levels. The bone display was a little creepy.
Brilliant! Not at all what you would expect, nothing macabre about the Tour at all - exact opposite it was an wonderful experience, the first crypt was beautiful. Our Tour Guide Rebecca was great, she has a way of giving the information without you losing interest, and bringing in light hearted details which keep you wanting more. Thank you Rebecca. Well worth the time and money to go through some unusual and interesting history of Rome.
It was an amazing tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Actually, it wasn't an all walking tour because we were bused to the various locations. Walking was minimal. I definitely would recommend this.
fabulous tour, terrific engaging and informative guide! i would recommend this tour enthusiastically!
Again an amazing experience. Demitri was our tour guide and he was excellent. The tour is very interesting. Especially when going into the crypts. The catacombs are amazing and you can feel the history. The Romans certainly celebrated life but also death and this is relayed to the tourist.
We travelled to the catacombs by coach, as it is just outside the city. It was an amazing experience We returned to the centre of Rome and visited the crypt, Wow. It was a unique experience that touched me deeply. It was one of the highlights of our visit to Rome. Unfortunately the church above the crypt had an event and was closed to the public, we will return to the crypt and church next time we visit Rome.

We enjoyed this tour immensely. It was my wife who was keen that we go on the tour having seen the catacombs as a child. Any reservations I had about the entertainment value of such a tour were very quickly dispelled. We were broken into two groups and our two guides An American and an antipodean ! led their respective groups but also joined forces to give combined briefings once we were on the bus. They were both quite superb. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who has done the headline tours and is looking for something a little different and definitely entertaining. Our guides were also an invaluable source of local knowledge on restaurants, bars and nightlife which was very helpful!!
This was by far the best thing I did while in Italy. From the earliest depiction of Mary and the baby Jesus, to the earliest recorded writing of the Italian vernacular we know today, this was a true walk through history. I loved it, and the tour guide was so amazing!
Great tour - the catacombs were an unusual site, coupled with the history and stories of the site made for a great tour. Visiting the Basilica of San Clemente provided a much deeper understanding of the layered history of Rome, being able to see layers of history before your very eyes is such an incredible experience and gave me a greater appreciation for a how far Rome dates back to, and b how little white history we have here in Australia of course, we do have 40- to 60,000 years of Indigenous history!
The Capuchin crypt museum was the definite highlight of this tour though - The story behind the beginnings of the Capuchins and their relocation to the current monastery, their belief in community, and dedication to those that came before them was particularly magic.

A very interesting tour, including a bus to get to the catacombs farther away. No pictures inside catacombs.
