I'd read stories about people going into the catacombs to explore and never coming out. I'd always thought these stories were apocryphal. Having now visited the catacombs of San Sebastian, I'm no longer sure. My husband and I had, of course, read about the catacombs,...More

The place is astonishing. Over 12 km of hallways and over 60,000 buried here. I wanted to spend my time walking through the hallways and exploring the inscriptions. But our (compulsory) tour was rushed with only 30 minutes to run behind the tour guide. Pictures...More

Duration of the tour - about 45 min, not suitable for disabled people - lot of staircases. It's absolutely unusual underground experience - to see ancient well preserved...More

The catacombes were very interesting and I enjoyed how the tour guide connected what we were seeing with the history of Rome. I would recommend getting the bus rather than the train and walking. My only gripe would be that our tour that took us...More

One has to take a guided tour of the Catacombs but it was well worth the reasonable entrance fee. Our guide was obviously an expert and we learned a great deal about these ancient burial sites. Photos are not allowed in the Catacombs out of...More

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.
