Description

Discover Rome's catacombs and crypts on this guided tour that reveals the relics hidden underneath the Italian capital.

You will begin your underground exploration with one of the funerary chambers below Rome to see the catacombs where the first Christian martyrs, condemned to death for their faith, were buried.

Then you'll move on to the Basilica San Clemente, under which a real archeological treasure is concealed: a 4th-century church, hidden deep beneath the basilica. Venture deeper still, and you will be able to see a 2nd-century temple to the ancient god of Mithra before hitting upon a Roman road which has been almost perfectly preserved.

Finally, you will visit the Capuchin crypt, whose walls are lined with the remains of almost 4,000 monks of the Franciscan Capuchin order.

The tour will end at via Labicana or Piazza Barberini, at approximately 6pm.
