You will see hundreds of burial chambers, from modest single sites to extravagant family tombs, in the long corridors of the underground city. First, visit the Capuchin Crypt and Museum for an encounter with Caravaggio’s magnificent “St. Francis in Meditation” canvas, along with masterpieces by Domenichino and Reni.

It was a great way to experience many original opera pieces from famous Italian composers. An amazing performance by Roberto, Emilio and Vanessa at an incredible small venue inside a small church. The acoustics were great! We took our daughter for the first time to be exposed to an opera, and the local performers were highly talented!!!

When in Rome, make sure to attend an opera. The singers and pianist were amazing. The only thing that had gone wrong was the piano was slightly out of wack. However, the pianist was able to improvise and continued with an wonderful performance. I highly recommend others to attend.

What a fabulous night, superb tenor and soprano singing favourites with a grand piano accompaniment. Wonderful venue with fabulous acoustics, intimate atmosphere, very much felt like a private performance - would highly recommend

Very good atmosphere. Nice to be close to the performers. They were very good and gave “all”.

Lovely experience, and the dinner was also lovely. 5 stars!
