Make your descent down to cobwebbed crypts and the terrifying Tomb Tunnels beneath Rome! Breathe cold underground air from a long forgotten age when these labyrinthine passages were sanctuary for the devoted, who visited to honour their dead.

 You will tour two of the deepest catacombs and discover unimaginably colourful frescoes depicting pagan images and early biblical influences, seemingly untouched by the ravages of time. One of these deep subterranean sites is known as "The Little Vatican".

 Morbid curiosity prevails inside the spooky bone church concealed behind a busy Roman square! This bizarre place is adorned with fragments of former lives, some of which date back to 1631.

 Catch a frightful glimpse of "St. Francis in Meditation" by Caravaggio, the original master of dark art. Before parting company with the skeletal remains, you will be confronted with an inscription that reads "What you are now, we once were. What we are now, you will be". To live, is to die.

 One of the most beautiful places in Rome is hidden in plain sight. You will find a mausoleum, a necropolis, and deep catacombs concealed beneath a partially buried basilica.

 Each underground site in Rome is connected by tram or metro in the historic center. The Tomb Tunnels lie 35 minutes outside Rome. Instructions about how to get there from the Colosseum or nearby are provided.




 Rated 4.6 / 5 by Ana P on May 4th, 2023  So interesting! We went to four underground sites in different parts of Rome where there were almost no other tourists. We had guided tours in some places, while others were self-guided and that was perfect as information was freely available for us to read around the history of each location. We moved part of the way by tram too which was such fun! Bus 118 from near the Colosseum to the catacombs complex wasn't busy and we didn't wait more than 15 minutes each way.
