Skip the Line: Crypts and Roman Catacombs Small Group Walking Tour
Reviewed by: Alison D, May 2015
This was a great tour! The combination of the Catacombs, St Clemente and the Capuchin crypts was definitely a winning formula. All three offer an insight into a different era and aspect of the history of Rome. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept the tour moving at a brisk pace. St Clemente is a Roman church not to be missed, all those layers underneath is like taking a vertical slice through the history of Rome over the last 2000 years or so- incredible!!

Rebecca did a great job. She was knowledgeable and kept the tour interesting. This was my last day in Rome or I would have booked more tours with her as she was the best guide we had during our 15 days in Italy. She told multiple stories that brought the crypts and catacombs to life.

This tour was a fascinating insight into how the crypts and catacombs came to be and why. The visit to Basilica of San Clemente was a highlight - city upon city has been excavated, right down to the 1st century. Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable. Can highly recommend this tour. Be advised that there are steps in the catacombs to negotiate.

Definitely intriguing and our guide Ernesto was simply, awesomingly full of so many unknown facts and history. Great tour :)

A fascinating and unusual tour. It started with a coach trip to the Catacombs sadly no bones present any more!, then another coach trip to the fascinating 4-levela church of San Clemente, then back on the coach to the fountain where the tour began for a short walk to perhaps the most unusual museum in Rome - the Capuchin museum complete with celebratory skeletal scenes featuring hundreds of dead monks and a couple of princesses too. I had a feeling this would be a good tour - I could feel it in my bones! - and I was right! Three separate parts to a half day tour packs a lot in and is good value for money. Our tour guide Rebecca was helpful and knowledgeable, and answered any questions anyone had, as well as putting everything in its historical and cultural context.
A great way to enjoy a taste of macabre Rome. Bone appetite!
