Start your after hours tour of the Catacombs of Rome at the Capuchin Crypt, better known as the “Bone Chapel” for the mortal remains of some 4,000 deceased monks that decorate its walls. Take in this extraordinary site in a small group of no more than 15 people as an expert guide explains the interesting beliefs of the monks about life and death that motivated the creation of such a macabre memorial.
Then, hop on a private, air-conditioned minibus and head to the Catacombs of Santa Priscilla, famous as the home of the oldest known depiction of the Virgin Mary. Once the final resting place of 7 popes, the catacombs will give a thrill of excitement as you become one of the first people to descend into the chambers after dark since the days of imperial Rome. Venture down the shadowy passageways without the crowds, and listen to your guide's tales of the darker side of the birth of Christianity.
Then, get dropped off back at Piazza Barberini in central Rome, convenient for both the metro and restaurants for you to continue your evening at leisure.

This was such an informative and eye opening tour. We went on a very hot day in Rome and were grateful when we descended into the cool Catacombs, our guide an English girl was very funny and informative she was a wealth of information it really does open your mind of how they lived then and the history behind it all, well worth the money.
This was an excellent trip which we thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. Our guide was fantastic - she was very knowledgeable and had a passion for her work. I would recommend this trip.
We had the best tour with walks of Italy. We took our 12 and 9 year old who absolutely loved it. Rebecca was our guide who was absolutely fantastic! I would definitely recommend this tour for families
