Description

Discover Rome’s dark side with an afternoon tour to some of its most sinister sites – the tunnels of the Catacombs, the street beneath Basilica San Clemente and the eerie Bone Chapel. After the sun goes down, dig deeper into the little-known history of the Eternal City on a story-filled night tour.

Your tour begins at the Catacombs, a network of subterranean tunnels once used as a burial ground and hiding place for Early Christians, who went underground to escape the wrath of the tyrannical emperor Nero.

Emerge back into the light of day and head to the Basilica San Clemente. Hear the tale of a priest driven mad by the sound of running water who dug into the floor of the church to uncover a first-century Roman aqueduct. Continue on to the grotesque Capuchin Crypt, also known as the Bone Chapel. The exhumed bones of over 4,000 monks adorn the walls and ceilings here in a macabre display of deathly décor, including dangling chandeliers made from vertebrae and skeletons still wearing their habits.

Take a break to grab a drink, a bite to eat or spend some time strolling the streets as darkness falls and then meet back up with your guide for a 90-minute guided night tour. Delve into the city’s spine-tingling history as you hear Rome's terrifying tales murders, executions and hauntings. Follow your guide across the Tiber and cobbled piazzas, standing in front of the home of Rome's most notorious killer and seeking out the ghost of Donna Olimpia beneath a shadowy bridge.

Our tour guide for crypts and catacombs (Rebecca) was amazing! We have traveled and done organized tours in over a dozen different counties, but she was by far the best guide we have ever had. She was friendly, excellent with names, and had an immense amount of knowledge about Rome and everything we were seeing on our tour. Our evening guide for dark side of Rome (Max) was also wonderful; very friendly and very entertaining for the “mysterious” stories of the city. Our only negative was that for a “combo tour”, it was very inconvenient to have the afternoon tour ending point and evening tour starting point over 30 minutes apart from each other.
