Explore the secret crypts and aqueducts of Rome on a 3-hour walking tour. Admire the funerary art at the Crypt of the Capuchin friars, and discover the foundations of the last Roman aqueduct still in use at the Virgin Aqueduct beneath the Trevi Fountain.
What to Expect
Get off the usual tourist path on an unusual walking tour of hidden Rome. During the half-day tour, you will discover a section of a Roman aqueduct still in use, and explore an 18th-century crypt built for a Catholic order of Capuchin friars.
The Capuchin Crypt is located beneath the church of Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini on Via Veneto near Piazza Barberini. It comprises several small chapels that contain the skeletal remains of more than 3,700 bodies. Complemented by a multimedia museum, the crypt recounts the history of the monastery and brotherhood of monks.
Next, stroll to Piazza Fontana di Trevi and descend 10 meters beneath the ground to discover an ancient Roman aqueduct in a modern movie theater. The Virgin Aqueduct still functions and serves most of the fountains of the city center.
Your guide will point out the ruins of various Roman houses and public cisterns, as well as numerous remains that have been perfectly preserved over the centuries.
