What you can expect

Meet your guide at Piazza Repubblica, the central location near Roma Termini. You will receive headset (headsets are used for groups of 5 people and up) and join your small group. We offer skip the line to all 3 venues on the itinerary. We begin with a 30-minute ride to the outskirts of Rome to visit the catacombs. You will head underground to explore the ancient burial complex containing relics of martyrs, saints and early popes. The second venue is located in the center of the city, guides call it archaeological lasagna, because it contains 4 layers of the ancient city. The third and the last venue is the most macabre place in Rome, the Capuchin Crypts. Series of 6 small rooms, 5 of which are decorated with human bones. Behold this gruesome site as your guide explains why and how it came to be.

Your expert English-speaking guide will show you the most important highlights at all three venues, you will skip the line and enjoy the ride on board of air-conditioned bus.

Such a great tour! Our guide was enthusiastic and really knowledgeable. We picked morning option because we know that in the afternoon the city and the venues become too crowded. We were right, it was almost like a private tour. Absolutely wonderful.

Our flight was later that evening and the timing of the tour was just right. Very unusual, but memorable tour. We loved the catacombs and especially san clemente basilica.
