A visit in the underground Rome Catacombs and main sites
This tour is designed to discover Rome's underground treasures. We will visit Cripta dei Cappuccini, Case del Celio and Catacombs of St. Sebastianus.
First stop at of Catacombs of St. Sebastianus, exploring the Catacombs themselves (a huge site of 12 km of galleries in total) in which St. Sebastianus the martyrswere buried and many Christians. These quarries are the origin of a pagan cemetery, later used by Christians. Then the term catacumbas ended up qualifying all the underground cemeteries, which were simply called catacombs. Afterwards, we will visit the Case del Celio complex , which preserves the best medieval frescoes, dated from the III century AD, under the Curch of Saints John and Paul in Caelio quarter.
Finally, we will visit the Cripta dei Cappuccini located just under the Church Santa Maria della Concezione, which is considered a true work of art for its decorations executed with human bones by a "brilliant artist" unknown.
