Skip-the-Line Catacombs & Crypts Tour

(Tour #302):

Half-Day Tour
Please inquire with reservations.


On this afternoon Small-group tour, which is limited to no more than 25 esteemed guests, your professional expert guide will peel back the layers and millenniums of history of imperial and early Christian Rome, as you descend into the Eternal city's underground burial chambers, its catacombs, and its amazing crypts. Go below and beyond to a time when Christianity was considered a simple “cult”, whose members were executed as pagans and buried as martyrs.   This is a unique, fascinating afternoon tour because it takes you to crypts and catacombs from different historical eras, in diverse locations, and with varying styles. Much of what Rome has to offer is buried underground, and through this tour you can discover the underside of Rome through three select sites:

1) Skip-the-Line entrance tickets with private, exclusive viewing just for your tour group at The Cappuccini Crypt (chapel decorated entirely by human bones);

2) Skip-the-Line entrance ticket to the Domitilla Catacombs (ancient Christian burial ground); and

3) Skip-the-Line entrance ticket to the Church of San Clemente (built over an ancient fourth-century church built over an even older Roman house containing Christian artifacts and a pagan temple -- with ruins reaching 57 feet deep).

Transportation from site-to-site will be provided in an air-conditioned vehicle, and our expert guide will provide you with the information and historical facts of this part of Rome’s history. In addition, your guide will also be glad to answer any questions which you may have as well. Your guided tour will end at Piazza Barberini at early evening..
