Tour of crypts and catacombs
An experience designed to allow you to discover the true essence of the Roman underground. Three itineraries curated to provide a complete panorama of 3,000 years of Roman history. We will visit:
The Capuchin Crypt
A cemetery literally constructed out of bones! The rooms are decorated with the remains of around 4,000 friars.
As is written on a sign at the end of the crypt: “That which we were, you are now. That which we are now, one day you will be.”
Eleven aqueducts fed ancient Rome, providing a volume of water only equaled in modern times.
We will take you beneath a commercial center to visit the ancient aqueduct and see where it empties into the famous fountain.
The Underground below the Basilica of San Nicola in Carcere
A secret place known to few. This lovely little church was constructed in the 10th century above the remains of three temples from the 1st century B.C.
Large sections of the original temples, including their marble columns, were incorporated into the structure of the basilica yet remain visible.
