Join us on this unique experience!

Not only is Rome rich in history on the surface but it also has a hidden side.
The first location we will take you to is the church of the Immaculate Conception, as soon as you enter you will immediately discover a fascinating secret.
The Capuchin (Franciscan brotherhood) who have been taking care of this church for the last 4 centuries have had its chambers decorated with their fellow brother’s bones… Yes that’s right chambers decorated with human bones!
Afterwards we will take you to the catacombs of Saint Priscilla. Archeologists say that if you were to connect all catacombs of Rome you would have a tunnel nearly 250 miles long!
Learn about the struggle of the first christian communities in Rome. How there was an organization behind the burial methods. We will guide you with expertise though the maze of tunnels and along the way point out frescoes, sarcophagi and underground chapels.
To conclude we will visit the Basilica of Saint Clement, a direct example of Rome’s various layers of history.
Enter the beautiful 12th century basilica where a stairwell takes you to the previous basilica of the 4th century. But it doesn’t end here, take a second stairwell and find yourself in the 2nd century!
