Full description
Your incredible tour begins at the the Crypt of the Capuchin Monks on Via Veneto, where you will meet your professional expert guide and join your exclusively small group of 6 people maximum. This historical crypt holds the bones of over 4,000 deceased Capuchin monks, which have been decoratively laid out creating an eerie atmosphere which is sure to leave you impressed. As your tour of the Capuchin Crypt ends and night begins to fall, your guide will escort you to a private chauffeured car where you will be taken to ancient catacombs for the next part of your tour. Your chauffeur will drop you off at the incredible Basilica of Saint Agnes outside the walls, which was built in honor and protection of the remains of Saint Agnes, a young Christian martyr executed under the reign of Diocletian. Here you will have the chance to visit the beautiful interior of the Basilica, and can descend into the impressive catacombs through exclusive access granted only to your guide's groups. A Saint Agnes affiliated and certified guide will here take you and other groups through the underground hallways lined by hundreds of tombs. Once above ground again, you will continue your visit with your exclusively small group of only 6 people. Your next stop will be just behind the Basilica di Saint Agnes in the Mausoleo di Costanza. This basilica is part of a larger, prominent palaeo-Christian funerary complex which is also home to a mausoleum dedicated to Costanza, Emperor Constantine’s daughter. The access to these incredible catacombs and funerary complex is privileged and exclusively granted to your guide's company's groups. This is sure to be an off-the-beaten-path, beautiful, and inspiring adventure which you will surely not soon forget. Once your tour has ended, you will hop back in your comfortable car before being taken back to the city center.

We had an excellent "show and tell" guide. We learned so much and even got to crash a wedding...well not exactly, the wedding was within an hour of starting. We took pictures, got a few stares and now have an amazing adventure to tell.

We had a great time on this tour. The small size made it easy to ask questions and get a personalized experience. Our guide was knowledgable and very friendly. We enjoyed being with her.

Learning about the Capuchin Monks from Ella was an enlightening experience. We did not know why the catacombs existed either, and learning about those was amazing, plus walking through the narrow underground passageways. It is hard to believe family members of the dead visited the dead in those passageways. Ella was so nice and knowledgeable. We also enjoyed the church, and learning about Constantina and St Francis of Assisi.
