Uncover the secrets beneath Rome

Your journey begins in Rome, where you'll board a panoramic bus for the Catacombs of Domitilla. Descend into this ancient complex, the oldest and largest in Rome, and discover a network of tunnels adorned with frescoes and Christian symbols. Your expert guide will bring the past to life, sharing stories of the early Christian community who found refuge and faith within these underground walls. Next, you'll be transferred to the Catacombs of Callisto, the most extensive network of its kind. Explore "The Little Vatican," the final resting place of nine popes, and admire the early Christian art adorning the family tombs.

Following the guided portion, your dedicated transfer will take you to the Capuchin Crypt. Explore this unique chapel at your own pace with a multilingual audio guide, encountering the remains of over 4,000 Capuchin friars arranged in an artistic and thought-provoking manner.
