Taking place in the underbelly of New York City, prepare yourself for the adventure of a lifetime. The tour begins in the Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral. You get to explore parts of the church that are not generally open to the public.
You will have your own personal guide who will meet you outside of the church and lead you and your party in. Not only will you get to explore beauty untouched by the outside world, but you’ll also learn the history of these secret parts of the church.
Constant Concern For Safety
The tour company is very aware that current circumstances make people leery about traveling and trying new experiences. They don’t want you to feel uncomfortable, so they have some rules set in place. Face masks are required in all public areas. If you forget yours or don’t have one, they will be provided for you. Social distancing is enforced in all areas and hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the tour.
The Low Down
Once you enter the catacombs you’ll get to learn about the people who now reside there. You will also learn the rich history of those who have visited the church and the architects of the church. Some highlights include the church’s pipe organ, a look at the walled cemeteries, a walk through the choir loft, and more. The tour lasts an average of an hour and thirty minutes. This leaves a lot of room for learning and questions. It also means your mind will run wild. Take a once of in a lifetime tour and expand your mind and soul with the Catacombs by Candlelight tour.
