You'll be guided through the dark tunnels of the Roman catacombs and it's hundreds of burial chambers. As you continue your mysterious journey, your group will explore Basilica San Martino Ai Monti and feel as though you are going back in time with every different level of the Basilica you visit as you hear an in-depth commentary, bringing it to life.You'll wrap up your tour with a visit to the truly eerie Capuchin Crypt, a fascinating chapel hidden away in central Rome decorated with the bones of 4,000 Capuchin Monks. You'll spend time discovering the intricate decorations and the official museum, which will give you a chance to see Caravaggio’s magnificent canvas ‘St. Francis in Meditation’ and relics from the life of St. Francis himself.
