Peel back the layers of Roman history—quite literally—with a thrilling exploration of its underground tombs and chapels. Visit the Catacombs of Santa Priscilla, home to stunning frescoes and thousands of centuries-old bones, including those of two Catholic popes. Learn about early Christianity from your guide while meandering the endless darkened tunnels. Next up is the Capuchin Crypt, where you'll find the artistically displayed bones of 4,000 Capuchin monks. Finally pay a visit to Nicola in Carcere and be surprised of how many layers this incredible "lasagne church" has.
I loved the tour. Our guide was funny and so very knowledgeable. His English was very good and easy to understand. It was an excellent tour. Highly recommend this
Melanie was absolutely fantastic and the knowledge that she had on the whole tour was very informative. She spoke English very well(as she came from Perth Australia), my wife and I will keep some amazing memories and will definitely recommend to everyone.

Guide was very well informed and enthusiastic. Crypts were quite unique. Catacombs were a bit disappointing since they were pretty emptied out. Looked more like empty slots in the walls.
Our guide was very knowledgeable, answered questions. Made sure everyone was involved. Remembered our names. Honest with her feelings about things.
This is a must see tour so much more than you think our guide made this our best tour with all the history
The Capuchin chapel and Bone Chapel is such an amazing tour it is truly a must see. So many interesting things to learn about on this tour. I wish they would have spent more time on this tour in the bone chapel or on the tour in general because there was just so much interesting information. Can't say enough about it, must experience it. Again go on a City Wonders tour because of all the tour companies they were the best, the most organized the most professional, the most learned, the most prepared, smallest group size, one language per group. AWESOME..
This tour was great, and Andrea English guide, as there were 2 Andrea'sour guide excellent! He knew what he was talking about and made the tour quite fun. Loved the bone chapel and the catacombs...worth the money!
The bone crypts were a little spooky and weird, but the catacombs were absolutely fascinating! To think that the first depiction of the Virgin Mary in the 1st century A.D. is in the catacombs and you are standing a few feet away from it was awe-inspiring and very moving. Loved it and loved our tour guide!
