If you have been to Rome already or you prefer a not ordinary tour for your kids, we think they will love our 3 hours tour to discovery of Rome’s Undergrounds. Our super child-friendly guide will drive them into the dungeons of Crypt of the bones, Vicus Caprarius and Domitian Stadium, fascinating them with the intriguing stories hidden behind these beautiful monuments and ruins.
You will find your guide at 10AM or 2:30PM, depending on your choice for a morning or an afternoon tour, at the entrance of the Church of Immaculate Conception located on Via Veneto, holding a sign with your name. You will begin your tour visiting the Crypt of the bones, best known as Capuchin Crypt, containing the skeletal remains of 3,700 bodies believed to be Capuchin friars buried by their order. Their bones are arranged throughout six chapels/crypts in lamps, sculptures and mosaic-like displays of flowers, geometric shapes, an hourglass, and various religious symbols. Accompanied by your private guide you will then proceed to the Vicus Caprarius, the City of Water. Everybody knows Trevi’s Fountain but were you aware about its underground archaeological area? The City of Water is part of this intricate labyrinth of ancient remains. Unfortunately your tour is almost over since, last but not least, you are finally approaching Domitian Stadium, commissioned by the Emperor Titus Flavius Domitianus as a gift to the people of Rome, mostly for athletic contests. This is the first example of a masonry stage of Greco-Roman antiquity and Navona square sits now over the interior arena of the Stadium.
