Tour description

Discover our small group tour of the crypts and the catacombs sitted in the roman territor with a private guide and a private driver: The crypts are undergrounds (or partly undergrounds) chambers, usually located beneath the chancel, for holy relics and burials. Crypts could be extremely large and might contain one or more altars in separate chapels. Crypts might hold the shrine of a saint, and thus woulds have to be large enough to accommodate pilgrims coming to pray at the shrine. Most cathedrals have sizeable crypts The catacombs are  series of underground passages and rooms where bodies wereburied in the past.

The tour start from the city center and the Santa Maria Maggiore church where a short tour will operate showing the wonders of the Basilica. The travellers will be then driven by a personal bus to the Capuchin church and its wonderful crypt for a one hour guided tour.  At the end of the tour, you will then reach the catacombs of San Callisto for another one hour guided tour, after passing by the Aventino to see one of the hidden wonders of Rome. The crypts and catacombs experience will finally reach the San Clemente church and its crypt for another and last one hour guided tour.
