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.
