What to expect

Become one of the first people ever to explore the Roman Catacombs after normal closing hours when you descend in the Catacombs of San Sebastiano at night to learn the history of Roman burial rites and early Christianity.

Your tour starts in the Capuchin Crypt, better known as the “Bone Chapel”, because it is festooned with the mortal remains of some 4,000 deceased monks. Your expert guide will explain the monks’ interesting beliefs on life and death which have motivated the creation of such a macabre memorial. Afterwards, you’ll hop on a private, air-conditioned minibus and head to the Catacombs of San Sebastiano. The bodies might be gone, but that doesn’t mean you won’t feel a thrill of excitement as you become one of the first people to descend into the Catacombs after closing since the era of Imperial Rome.

After your Catacombs visit your private transport will drop you back to the point where you met in central Rome, convenient for the metro and restaurants.
