Tour Crypts and Catacombs of Rome

Price: 25.00 EUR
Countries: Italy
Route: Rome
Duration: 2,5 h
Explore a 2,000-year-old civilization from below ground on this tour of crypts and catacombs to see where the Christian era began to flourish.  Explore the centuries-old Rome churches and burial sites of this ancient city. Our Crypts and Catacombs Tour brings you on a journey of some of the most iconic remains of that culture. See the underground catacombs where Christianity took root, the pagan cults that churches were built on and the shrines dedicated to the afterlife which give Rome the nickname- the Eternal City.  Rome’s Christian and pagan communities were prevented, by various laws and rules, from burying their dead within the city. In addition to governing laws, the price of land was also prohibitive, and as such, “death practices” evolved where burials took place away from the urban center. Instead, burials took place beyond the city’s Via Appia Antica (the Old Appian Way) outside of the boundary walls of Rome. During the tour you will see the Christian underground catacombs of Rome, the multiple layers of the Basilica of San Clemente and the macabre Capuchin ‘Bone Chapel’, will discover how the monuments of death throw light on how people lived in Rome.
