Catacombs guided tour with Transfer and Cappuccini crypts with audioguide

Get ready to have your assumptions about Rome turned upside down on this incredibly unique journey of discovery. The itinerary includes some of the most uncommon, mysterious, and outlandish sites the Eternal City has to offer.

Embark on a fascinating underground tour of the Catacombs, taking you into the unusual history of Rome. Learn about how dating almost 2,000 years to the 2nd century AD, this extensive network of underground tunnels was once a burial ground and a place of worship for the first Christians in Rome.
After the guided tour at the Catacombs, you will visit on your own the famous Cappuccini Cripts in Via Veneto: the Cripts is inside a museum attached to the Baroque church of Santa Maria della Concezione, close to Piazza Barberini. The museum collects and exhibits some significant aspects of the Capuchin friars in general. The simple lifestyle, closeness to the poor and spirit of fraternity that characterize the religious order, whose history is recounted from its origins in the 16th century to the present day. 

The Crypt is a singular work of art with a macabre all-Baroque taste that has few other examples in the city – such as the crypt of the Church of Orazione e Morte on Via Giulia or the underground cemetery of the Confraternity of the Sacconi Rossi adjacent to the church of San Bartolomeo all'Isola. It consists of a long corridor with five chapels, decorated on the vaults and walls with the mortal remains of nearly 4,000 friars dating from between the 16th and the 19th centuries, composed in such a way as to form rosettes, pilasters, stars, hourglasses, clocks and butterflies, chandeliers and crosses.

On the walls are piled thousands of shinbones, femurs and skulls turned into building materials to create niches and architectural structures that house skeletons dressed in the habit of some of the friars.

Each chapel bears the name of the bones with which the decorations were made and contains, according to tradition, holy earth transported here from Palestine or Jerusalem.
