HAVE YOURSELF SOME MACABRE, YET SACRED FUN...
Get ready to explore two of Rome’s most famous “not for the faint of heart” sites… and enjoy fantastic night-time access that makes it even creepier than usual!
You may have heard of Rome’s famous Capuchin Crypt and Museums … but it’s more likely that you’ve seen the pictures on TV or the internet…
These outstandingly well-preserved Catacombs are famous for holding the remains of over 4000 ancient monks… and they get their fair share of international media attention just for that. - It’s a sight to behold, and a true thrill for fans of the macabre.
(think about that… 4000!)
But while most tours try their best to shuffle guests through the halls however they can, and keep the line moving… this tour gives you and your small group SPECIAL access and timing, that lets you really make a memorable night out of the whole affair.
After you tour the astounding Capuchin Crypt, and see the perfectly preserved, artfully-arranged, and spiritually-inspired bones that literally help you peer into the past and connect with ancient life on a VERY human level…
...the tour only gets better.
As if 4000 monks wasn’t enough to make the evening memorable… this tour is a double whammy, and brings you to yet another set of deeply fascinating catacombs.
Yes… there’s another stop.
You’ll load up in a chauffeured car and be driven across town a short distance to an even more historically significant spot:
St. Agnes Basilica - The resting place of one of history’s most prominent female martyrs … a revolutionary in her time!
With VIP night-time access that only happens with special arrangements, you tour continues VERY deep underground… where 3 tiers of catacombs hold eerie surprises and a surprising feeling of peace.
You’ll learn all about St. Agnes while you’re there… but suffice to say that the story is head turning, and likely to make you feel deeply in touch with a long-gone ancient world that’s oddly still right here, perfectly preserved and on display.
And aside from the tombs, preserved remains, and otherworldly underground sites you’ll explore … you’ll also survey the MANY masterworks that have been dedicated to St. Agnes over a millennia, and see just how deeply this feminine pioneer affected the world we know today.
In addition to the spectacularly special (and awesomely creepy) experience you get because you can go at night, when the catacombs are their best…
With this tour you get a little bit more. - The whole experience has been set up to accommodate small groups exclusively.
That means you’ll have the space to maneuver the catacombs without feeling bunched up, and you’ll have plenty of time and freedom to converse with the expert guide who will show you way and regale you with spine-tingling tales of the past.
Not a bad way to spend an evening.
In fact… Most people leave feeling only a tiny bit ‘creeped out’ … and deeply in touch with the real reason catacombs exist:
They’re VERY life-affirming...
...and one of the most memorable ways to contemplate your existence.
Have yourself some macabre, yet sacred, fun! - Book this tour to get the most satisfying, VIP, and unique tour of Roman Catacombs that we’ve been able to find… and give yourself the gift of the eternal.
