Holiday Rome Guided visit The Catacombs of Rome

Our Tour begins in the Christian Catacombs of Domitilla or San Callisto. There we will admire the early Christian Art developed in long tunnels that provide a moving testimony of life and customs of the Roman Church during the days of persecution, when Christianity was considered as being a dangerous cult to be eradicated. 

 

Holiday Rome Guided visit The Catacombs of Rome and San Clemente BasilicaAfterwards we will go down the different levels on which the Basilica of San Clemente stands, it goes deeper and deeper into time, layers of history embedded one on the other: from the Basilica of these days, up to the Church of the 4th century, up to ruins of an ancient temple, perhaps dedicated to Mithras, up to a perfectly preserved road dating back to the 1st century. The echo of water flowing from an ancient underground spring into a lake that was formed under this building, will make your visit even more fascinating.

Museum and Crypt of the Capuchins

Holiday Rome Guided visit The Catacombs of Rome and the Crypt of the Capuchins

This is a unique work of art in a Church of Via Veneto, within the heart of Rome. It is in point of fact, the result of the work carried out by the Capuchin Friars in the eighth century. They utilized the bones of about 4000 deceased friars to make chandeliers, altars,friezes, paintings and decorations for the Crypt and the rooms around. The message of the Capuchin Friars was not meant to be sad, but of hope, since they say that the body is just the soul container waiting for Resurrection.                                                    

“We were what you are and what we are you will be”.

The Museum of the Monastery is intended to let you know the spirituality of the Capuchin Friars and presents the life as well as the relics of Saints such as St. Crispin of Viterbo, St. Crispino of Viterbo, Father Mariano of Torino and St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, the friar with the stigmata. Today you can also admire the Caravaggio’s masterpiece “St. Francis in meditation”,painted by this great artist for the Capuchins Monastery specifically.
