Overview
Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the Roman Catacombs after closing time on an evening tour in Rome. After the catacombs have closed to the public, you’ll explore the subterranean labyrinth and the Capuchin Crypt in a small group limited to 15—to ensure an intimate atmosphere is maintained. Enjoy an unmissable crowd-free experience and listen to commentary that brings the dark history of the tunnels to life. All entrance fees are included.
What to Expect

Greet your guide at a central Rome location after the Roman Catacombs have closed to the public. As you descend to the underground tunnels, you’ll hear the story of the macabre Bone Chapel, built using the remains of more than 4,000 monks.

Explore the tunnels in relative tranquility, visiting the Capuchin Crypt and the Catacombs of Saint Priscilla, and relish a crowd-free environment that adds to the eerie atmosphere of the Roman Catacombs.

Your tour concludes at your original departure point.
