Would you like to visit the mysterious Roman Catacombs on your trip to The Eternal City? You’ll descend beneath Rome’s well-traveled streets see five rooms full of carefully-organized human bones before visiting one Rome's vast set of underground Catacombs. Roughly 95% of Rome’s visitors don't see the Roman Catacombs. Most visitors choose to visit the Vatican and Colosseum while skipping this mysterious gem. Don’t miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! This 3-hour underground tour features:
Please note: Because some of the sites on this small group tour are religious, knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women at all times. This dress code is strictly enforced and should you not comply, you run the risk of missing parts of the tour. We know that Rome gets quite hot during the summertime - please consider bringing a shawl/scarf/sweater with you to cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.
Q: Is there a dress code to enter the religious sites on this tour?
A: We ask both men and women to cover knees and shoulders, otherwise you may be refused entry to religious sites and miss out on a portion of your tour. We understand the summers in Rome can be hot, so a great alternative is to bring a shawl/scarf/sweater with you. That way, you can cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.
Q: Why does my kid 6 or under have to pay? C'mon!
A: Sorry about this. We're parents too and we understand! Unfortunately, they must be seated due to traffic regulations so they take up a seat in our vehicle. We even bring a car seat for children who require one. If it makes you feel any better, we don't make money off your kids for this tour.
Q: Will we see bones?
A: Yes! This tour visits the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione which houses a 17th-century ossuary under it. There you will see the bones of around 4,000 Capuchin friars!
Q: What Catacomb does this tour visit?
Q: I have trouble walking? Is this tour for me?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a Catacombs Private Tour.
