About
This very small group tour (max 8 people) is a unique experience: a 3 hours impressive walk through the underground of Rome. Enter the Medieval St.Clement's Basilica and get the hidden stair that will lead you one level below, to visit the Ancient Roman St.Clement's Basilica (30 feet under the modern level). Go further below and be astonished by the atmoshphere of the Mitra temple buried 45 feet underground. Keep walking and get the mysterious large Ancient Rome warehouse with its natural waterspring 50 feet under the modern streets. Leave the area and climb the Celian Hill to enter another underground site: the Ancient Roman houses buried below St.John and Paul's Basilica. A labyrinth of ancient rooms, frescoed fountains, baths, wine cellars and hidden Early Christian tombs hidden underground for 1600 years and recently rediscovered. This tour always includes a professional Archaeologist to guide you...otherwise nothing makes sense!

The BEST tour I have ever take
I have been to Rome over 30 times, taken tours on every trip. This was the best I ever had. Simone loves his work and has the ability to organize a tour that imparts more knowledge than you could ever expect. Just amazing. Do not miss this tour.

Perfect for everyone in our family!
We loved our Underground Tour of Rome! It was fascinating to learn how the buildings were built and learn about the architecture surrounding us. Not only is Simone is incredibly knowledgeable, but he was extremely patient with our young son who asked many, many questions.
I highly recommend this tour for anyone with a curiosity about the history of Rome and a desire to get to the bottom of things!

Amazing how Rome was built upon itself. Being able to see what is "under" a current church was enlightening.

Must see tour and great guide
May 2019 • Couples
The underground tour was fabulous - this is a must see if you want to understand even more of Rome’s history. Having an archeologist as a tour guide made it even more interesting. Simone was not only extremely knowledgeable but very engaging. He definitely helped make our latest trip to Rome a wonderful experience.

May 2019 • Couples
We wanted a different tour as we have been to Rome before. This tour absolutely fitted the bill and was the highlight of our trip to Rome. Simone is a very knowledgeable and interesting guide and excellent at sharing his extensive knowledge. We loved seeing and understanding, not only the lovely churches and villas one under the other, but also the significance of what we were seeing in relation to the history of Rome and the way people lived in these times. This tour is highly recommended!

The best of all tours in Rome!
May 2019 • Couples
My husband and I have been to Rome a couple of other times and thought we saw and knew a lot about Rome history, Wrong! We were looking for something different to do and I found Simone on TripAdvisor and decided to book him for two tours and they were absolutely the best tours. Simone is not only highly enthusiastic and knowledgeable but he made both days fun and easy for us to learn history as we never knew it. We wish we had a history professor like him! It was such a pleasure to have Simone as our tour guide and it was a wonderful experience getting to know some of the real Rome. Just want to say thank you, Simone, for proving us two terrific tours and next time we are back in Rome we will be signing up to learn more with you. Thank you for such a great time and adventure.

Jul 2018 • Family
Simone is an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. It was so exciting to see the layers of history in real life. It was also much cooler in the underground, so if it is hot out then definitely do this tour. This tour sparked the interest of my teenage daughter in the history of Rome.

Everyone Says Rome is Built on a City
Jun 2018 • Friends
Well, until I went with Simone on this fantastic tour, I truly didn't understand what it meant that Rome was built on itself. Seeing it in person made all the difference in the world, but getting it explained to me in plain English was an even better experience. If you want a guide for your tour, then Simone and anyone he suggests is the way to go.

Simone Lanna is simply the best!!!
Sep 2017 • Couples
We were in Rome to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary during the last week of September. Having read about Simone on TripAdvisor, we booked him for tours of the Vatican and the Capitoline Museums. Those two tours were the highlights of our sightseeing in Rome! Simone is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and makes learning history fun and interesting. Having been to Rome several times before, we were delighted to rediscover and to learn many new and curious details of its history through Simone's eyes. In addition to all of that, Simone is a super pleasant person and fun to be with. We have already agreed to do the Rome Underground Tour with him the next time we go to Rome. Thank you, Simone, for making our "Rome Adventure" an unforgettable experience! Silvana and Karl from New York
