Rome Underground

Explore ancient burial grounds and learn about early Christian worship and symbolism.

A drive along the Aurelian Walls and to the Appian Way, the Catacombs of Rome await!

See the Basilica of St. John in Lateran, the official cathedral of Rome. Then the Scala Santa, or “holy staircase”; sanctified by the footsteps of Jesus during his Passion. The stairs were later brought to Rome from Jerusalem, a move commissioned by St. Helena.

Then off to the ancient Basilica of San Clemente

Another location you’ll go to is the Capuchin Crypt, also known as the “Bone Church.” Few attractions in Rome rival this underground crypt created by the Capuchin Friars using thousands of bones of their fellow monks to decorate the walls and ceilings.

A fascinating tour, to dive into a different aspect of Rome. What makes a city like Rome so interesting, is that it hosts so much history.
