Full description
Discover the crypts of Rome, underground chambers, usually beneath the chancel, for holy relics and burials. Crypts could be extremely large and might contain one or more altars in separate chapels. Visit crypts which hold the shrine of a saint, large enough to accommodate pilgrims coming to pray at the shrine. 

Start your tour from the city center, and take a short tour of the Santa Maria Maggiore Church to discover the wonders of the Basilica, as explained by your expert guide. Next, hope onto a personal bus to the Capuchin Church and explore its wonderful crypt in a one-hour guided tour.

At the end of the tour, reach the catacombs of San Callisto and strap in for a somber, spooky hour tour of these underground hallways, after passing by the Aventino to see one of the hidden wonders of Rome. Finally, reach the San Clemente Church and its crypt to discover the secret, hidden history of this tomb.
