Your tour begins at a designated meeting point in Piazza Barberini, by the large Triton (Tritone) fountain. Once you've met your guide and joined the small visiting group (not more than 18 people), you will be seated in an air-conditioned coach and driven to the first stop on the tour - the Capuchin Crypt.
At the crypt, better known as the “Bone Chapel”, you will discover the mortal remains of over 4,000 deceased Capuchin monks used as decorations. The tour also gets you access to the Capuchin Museum where your guide will help you understand the Capuchin beliefs on life and death that motivated the creation of such a macabre memorial.

However, on this tour, you will be alone in the catacombs with only your group, your guide and the remains of more than a thousand Christians to give you company.
