Crypts and Catacombs of Rome Tour

Go down under

Discover imperial and early Christian Rome by peeling back layers and millenniums of history as you descend into the Eternal city’s underground burial chambers, its long winding catacombs and its crypts. You’ll never believe what lies beneath Rome until you see it for yourself on this original Crypts and Catacombs tour.

Go below and beyond to a time when Christianity was considered a cult whose members were executed and buried as martyrs, as your guide leads you through the catacombs of Rome. These long corridors house hundreds of burial chambers from modest singles to extravagant family tombs.

Basilica San Clemente is an unexpected surprise, as we journey from the top layer - a 14 th century Basilica - down through a huge 4th century Basilica, a 2nd century sanctuary believed to have once hosted rituals by the mysterious Mithraic cult and finally, an incredibly preserved 1st century Roman street, replete with herringbone tiling.
