Rome Underground Tour with kids
Do you or your children have a fascination with stories of the dead, ancient rituals, or imagine about cities that lie underground? Are they interested in mummies and skeletons and learning what happened in the lives of the people whose remains are buried beneath the churches? Are you on a pilgrimage to witness significant places and artifacts important to early Christianity?
Underneath the city of Rome there is another world waiting for you full of mystery, relics of ancient rituals, and layers of history from the earliest periods of the great Roman Empire to modern day Catholicism in Rome.
Our Rome Underground Tour takes you and your family through the most famous and interesting sites of Underground Rome and venues of historical significance to Christianity including the decorative Crypt of the Capuchins, Church of St. Clemens visiting the 4 subterranean levels and more.
You will go underground to explore, learn, and discover how the Romans once lived and also transformed ancient pagan temples into today’s most beautiful catholic churches.
