Tour Description

A world exclusive: visit the Catacombs after closing

The Catacombs of Rome make for an incredible visit. Hidden beneath the city, these maze-like graveyards were created by Rome’s first Christians during a time when their religion was heavily persecuted. Located six storeys beneath the ground at points, they once held the remains of saints, martyrs, and thousands of early converts.

Visiting today, however, the catacombs may not feel as secretive as they once did. Rome Catacomb tours are becoming increasingly popular. Indeed, as the foot traffic rises, so too does the noise level.

A world exclusive: visit the Catacombs after closing

The Catacombs of Rome make for an incredible visit. Hidden beneath the city, these maze-like graveyards were created by Rome’s first Christians during a time when their religion was heavily persecuted. Located six storeys beneath the ground at points, they once held the remains of saints, martyrs, and thousands of early converts.

Visiting today, however, the catacombs may not feel as secretive as they once did. Rome Catacomb tours are becoming increasingly popular. Indeed, as the foot traffic rises, so too does the noise level.

That's why we're offering the first Rome Catacombs after-hours tour. With only Walks of Italy groups inside the catacomb, your visit is guaranteed to be intimate and mysterious. Your guide will be easy to hear and interact with, and the catacombs themselves will be transformed. Step 2,000 years back in time with an unforgettable experience of Rome’s hidden history.

See a chapel decorated with the bones of 4,000 monks

Your Rome Catacomb After-Hours Tour starts at the Capuchin Crypt; an incredible series of rooms decorated with the bones of 4,000 monks. There are light fixtures made from spinal bones, a coat of (real) arms, and a few full skeletons still wearing their monk’s robes.

Included in your ticket is the Capuchin Museum, where your guide will point out a disputed Caravaggio and some strange mementos of monks. Then you’ll board a private vehicle for the journey across town to the highlight of our tour.

The most historically-significant Catacombs - all to yourself

Our Rome Catacombs Tour has exclusive after-hours access to the incredible network of catacombs. Apart from their historical and religious significance, they're also one of the most atmospheric – especially when you’re there alone! Headsets don’t work underground, so you’ll be particularly grateful for the peace and quiet (and for your small group of only 18 people or fewer) as you follow your guide through the winding underground passages.

One thing is for sure: it will be an experience you won’t soon forget.
