This is a sponsored post, but all opinions are my own. We were not supposed to take pictures on this tour, so most pictures are from The Walks of Italy website!
I was not thrilled to go on a tour of the catacombs while in Rome. Honestly, I didn’t do much research on it. Ian’s mom picked out this tour for us and I was just going with the flow. I didn’t expect to like it, but I was wrong.
We met at Piazza Barberini, by the Triton Fountain. Our guide was bubbly and more talkative, compared to the guide we had for our tour of the Colosseum. The way that she talked about the tour got me excited – she said it was her favorite tour offered by Walks of Italy. By the time she finished talking, I was actually looking forward to day!
Our first stop of the day was The Bone Chapel and it was out of this world amazing – so, so cool! The Capuchin Bone Crypt, or Chapel. This is basically a cemetery for 4,000 Capuchin monks. I don’t want to give away too much information about what you will learn in the chapel, but it was surprisingly really cool to me and very artistic. Everyone has a different reaction, though. There were some in our group that thought it was really bone chilling (ha, get it?!).
