Mobile voucher accepted
Duration: up to 3 hours 30 minutes
Safety measures applied
Do this because
  • Visit the best-preserved and least-frequented catacombs in Rome
  • Gape at the Capuchin bone crypt, a cemetery literally built from the bones of 4,000 Capuchin friars
  • Enjoy a spectacular view of the Roman Aqueducts, one of the city’s most impressive landmarks
What to expect

Your tour starts in one of the city’s most interesting catacombs, containing miles of creepy tunnels and the world’s oldest collection of bones. Your expert guide will lead your small group through these wonderfully historic and atmospheric tunnels while telling you the story of early Christianity.

Next, you’ll head to one of the most singular and spine-tingling sights in Rome, the Capuchin bone crypt. The cemetery festooned with the bones and remains of some 4,000 Capuchin friars is a jaw-dropping display of life and death. Although it might appear macabre, you’ll learn why the monks actually consider the display life-affirming.

To finish out the day, you’ll visit one of the most spectacular sites in all of Rome, the Roman Aqueducts, where you’ll be given time to enjoy and understand this monumental landmark from a stunning vantage point.
