What you'll do

In this fabulous Ancient Catacombs by Night Experience, you will explore and descend into some of the most impressive roman catacombs with only our little group and a few flashlights, thanks to an exclusive collaboration fostered with these sites. Your journey begins at the the Crypt of the Capuchin monks on Via Veneto, where you will meet one of the members of our team and join your exclusively SMALL group of 6 people max. This historical crypt holds the bones of over 4,000 deceased Capuchin monks, which have been decoratively laid out creating an eerie atmosphere which will surely leave you impressed. As night begins to fall, you will then be escorted to the ancient catacombs of Saint Agnes, via a private chauffeured car. The Basilica of Saint Agnes outside the walls was built in honour and protection of the remains of Saint Agnes, a very young Christian martyr executed under the reign of Diocletian. Here you will have the chance to visit the beautiful interior of the Basilica and descend into the impressive catacombs, through exclusive access granted only to us. This means that at night no one else is allowed down there BUT us! Finally, we will explore the wonderful mausoleum of Santa Costanza, tomb of one of Emperor Constantine's daughters, known for its breathtaking beauty. To end, enjoy a comfy chauffeured car ride back to the city center.

Angelo

Hi! I’m Angelo, a born and raised Roman who is also half American. Together with Rachel, Melanie, Giulia, Thomas, Luca & Patrizio, we are professional tour guides and entertainers, passionate historians, story tellers and performers, providing beautiful experiences of Rome for over a decade. Rome is one of the most incredible cities in the world, with some of the most famous landmarks in the world. Millions of tourists come here every year, but we believe that most do not get to have a personalised and local experience of this incredible town, and that just breaks our heart, because Rome has so much to offer and to be lived! That is why we embarked on this adventure: a personal mission to provide visitors of Rome the ability to actually LIVE it, breath it, learn it, feel it their own! We hope you will join us and EXPERIENCE Rome with us!

What's included

Transportation
To travel between sites and then back to the city center, a private chauffeur service will be provided to our guests.
