Meet your guide and group at Piazza Barberini in central Rome. Head to Capuchin Crypt while your guide tells you about ancient Rome. At the crypt museum, see one of Caravaggio’s famous paintings, St. Francis in Meditation. Hear about the crypt’s unusual chapels made entirely out of human bones.
Heading toward Appian Way, listen to commentary about the road’s history, including the hundreds of miles of underground space beneath it that were used as burial grounds and secret worship spots for persecuted Christians. Skip the long lines at this popular attraction, saving valuable vacation time.
You’ll skip the line again at Basilica of San Clemente, comprised of three 12th-century structures built on top of each other. Listen as your guide explains the history of the Renaissance-era mosaics and frescoes before leaving you on your own to explore further if you wish.
