Visit Roman Catacombs, home to stunning frescoes and thousands of centuries-old bones. Learn about early Christianity from your guide while meandering the endless darkened tunnels. Next up is the Capuchin Crypt, where you find the artistically displayed bones of 4,000 Capuchin monks.

Another reopening tour

Due to the extremely recent reopening of Italy, this was our second tour that ended up being almost private. Andrea was our guide. He was very passionate, thorough and personable. It was a fantastic tour. If this type of thing interests you, you can not go wrong.

Halloween in the Crypts

Our tour guide - Antonella- was so nice & enthusiastic.The highlight was the Capuchin Monastery - bit weird but fascinating.The Catacombs were really impressive.Not sure about the final visit to John & Pauls house seemed out of sync with the previous 2 sites.Overall a really enjoyable day - perfect for Halloween.

Slightly odd but enthralling

What a wonderful and different view of life in Ancient Rome. Andreas carefully guided us through the life and death rituals of the people of the time to give us a glimpse into their world. His knowledge was deep and he painted the picture of the transition from pagan worship through to Christian belief in the best detail we have experienced. If you are looking for something a little different, this is a great tour for you.

Great guide, interesting tour
364wendyj

This tour is the Cappuccino monks Crypts, the catacombs and the underground history of the church of St John and St Paul was very interesting. Valerio was a very knowledgeable guide on the history of these 3 sites. The catacombs in particular were amazing. My only criticism (and it is a small one) is that there were 2 small children on the tour who were constantly talking and noisy distracting from hearing the information of the guide). I think they were bored after a while and I don’t think this tour was suitable for children so young (say under 5 years)

Hello 364wendyj, Thank you for your review of our Crypts and Catacombs tour in Rome, your feedback is very much appreciated! I am thrilled that you found this tour so interesting and informative, that is precisely what we hope for all our guests to experience with us. The catacombs are absolutely amazing, we agree, and we are so glad that you chose to join us for the experience. I can completely understand if you found your youngest tour companions a little distracting. While we welcome all ages to our tours, we would hope that there wouldn't be too much chatter while our guides are sharing their knowledge. We will certainly be taking your feedback regarding this on board for the future! Warmest regards, The Walks Team
