General

Your English-speaking tour driver will welcome you at your hotel or any other place of your convenience.

We will start the underground tour of Rome with a trip outside the Aurelian Walls and down the ancient Appian Way to the Catacombs of Rome. Here you will explore ancient burial grounds and learn about early Christian worship and symbology.

From the catacombs, we will head back toward the center, visiting three of Rome’s important churches along the way. The Basilica of St. John in Lateran is the official cathedral of Rome, presided over by none other than Pope Benedict XVI, himself. Just across the way is the Scala Santa, or “holy staircase,” that led to Praetorium of Pilate in Jerusalem; it was therefore, sanctified by the footsteps of Jesus during his Passion. The stairs were later brought to Rome from Jerusalem, upon request of the mother of Constantine, St. Helena.

A short stroll away is the ancient Basilica of San Clemente. Three layers tell the fascinating story of this church, dating back to the first century when the structure was a temple to the pagan goddess, Mithras. A Christian church was erected on the site in the 4th century, and the basilica we see today was finished in 1120.

Returning to the historic center, your tour driver will accompany you on a visit to the Capuchin Crypt, also known as the “Bone Church.” Few attractions in Rome rival this underground crypt created by the Capuchin Friars using thousands of bones of their fellow monks to decorate the walls and ceilings.

At the end of the tour, your English-speaking driver will drive you back to your hotel or other area of your convenience.

What you’ll see: Catacombs of St. Callixtus, ancient Basilica of San Clemente, Basilica of St. John in Lateran and Capuchin crypt.

  • We hired a private driver through TripAdvisor to take us on our tour. Our tour through the catacombs was so interesting! Everyone really enjoyed it. The history behind the catacombs was very fascinating. Then we went to the St. John of Lateran Church and it was gorgeous! The last stop on this tour was a the Capuchin Church where we toured the museum and the crypt. The Crypt was one of the coolest things we saw on our trip to Rome and we highly recommend it to everyone! Our driver Marco was very nice and informative. We were not allowed to take pictures in the catacombs or the crypt.
