Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy


Discover the treasures of underground Rome with an expert local guide

Enjoy this tour designed to discover Rome's underground treasures.

This tour is designed to discover the hidden treasures of the Underground Rome.

First stop at of Catacombs of St. Sebastianus, exploring the Catacombs themselves (a huge site of 12 km of galleries in total) in which St. Sebastianus and many Christians were buried. These quarries are the origin of a pagan cemetery, later used by Christians. Then the term “catacumbas” ended up qualifying all the underground cemeteries, which were simply called “catacombs”.
In alternative you’ll visit the Catacombe of San Callisto in which were buried tens of martyrs, 16 Popes and many Christians.

Afterwards you’ll visit the Basilica of San Clemente reserves, in the subsoil, some of the most important monuments of the city. It consists of three different chronological and structural levels. The first one consists of the XIIth century  church, still on the surface; at the second level you’ll find the lower Basilica, dating back to the IVth century AD, which preserves some fantastic medieval frescoes. Going further down you will reach a third underground level with a complex of ancient Roman houses dating back to the Ith century AD and a suggestive Mithraeum.

The visit to the wonderful Cripta Cappuccini, located just below the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione, is then a unique experience of its kind. Absolutely not to be missed if you plan to visit Rome!

This tour can be customized according to your needs and requests.
