We had a spectacular tour guide. I did not catch his name, but he projected his voice well so everyone could hear, and his English was excellent. A few days after this, we also visited the Catacombs of Priscilla and were very disappointed in that...More

The tour was very interesting and was different to the other catacomb I have been to in Naples. However, it was very bad that photos were not allowed. It is a good place to stop along Via Appia Antica.

Take the Big Bus tour. It stops Right in front of the catacombs. Otherwise, You’ll have to take the metro and a taxi which is less convenient and more expensive in the long run.
