Built on three levels, each time you descend you go back further in history! In St Clemente’s Basilica, built in the 12th century over the 4th-century Early Christian church, you will actually enter a 2nd-century pagan temple dedicated to the God Mithra, as well as a 1st-century Roman house, called an “insula”.
After your visit of St Clemente’s Basilica, our private driver will take you and your guide to the catacombs. On your way to the catacombs your guide will explain to you the history, as inside the catacombs you must tour with an official guide of the catacombs as part of a small group tour. Walking through narrow tunnels built like a maze, your kids will be excited to discover the history around every corner.
The final stop on your underground Rome for kids tour will be a visit to the Capuchin Crypt of the Bones. Adorned with the real human bones of the Capuchin friars, the so-called Crypt of the Bones is one of the most unusual sites in the whole of Rome and definitely not for the weak stomached! Like stepping into a parallel universe, you will even see chandeliers made out of human bones…
A tour full of mystery, old Roman and Christian traditions and legends. Kids will learn whilst having fun, during our Rome Underground Tour for Kids.
