A tour to discover Rome's Underground treasures - Private transportation included


This tour is designed to discover Rome's underground treasures. We will visit Cripta dei Cappuccini, Basilica of St. Clement and Catacombs of St. Callixtus.

We will meet at the entrance of Catacombs of St. Callixtus and we will start the tour exploring the Catacombs themselves in which were buried tens of martyrs, 16 popes and very many Christians. Afterwards, we will visit the three different chronological and structural layers of the Basilica of St. Clement. Using a stairway we will reach the lower basilica, which is dated back to 4th century AD and preserves wonderful medieval frescoes. Running down through another stairway we will arrive in a third underground level, whose structures are dated back to first century AD where we will find a complex of ancient roman houses. Finally, we will visit the Cripta dei Cappuccini located just under the Church Santa Maria della Concezione.

This tour it is not available on Wednesday as the Catacombs of St. Callixtus are closed.
