Catacombs are a very interesting but unknown attraction for Rome. We happened to come across them on the organization of our trip and decided to visit them. The walk with the tour guide in the tunnels was interesting, but part of our group is incomprehensible...More

Our tour guide led us to the second level of tombs, preserved from the first century. There are several more levels. I have never seen anything like it. We learned that the Pope used these catacombs to hide Jews during WWII.

If you are expecting to see skulls and skeletal remains, you will not find it here. You will find a rich history of how these remains were stolen from the site and how the catacombs came about. It was not what I had expected after...More

We took this tour very early in the morning. Only four including ourselves. As good as one on one. The guide was very knowledgeable and took pains to help us understand the levels of time and development. Absolutely worth the time and money!! GREAT value.

We went with a tour which meant that you don’t get very long in the catacombs but they are full of history and are surprisingly beautiful in places with frescos on the ceiling and marble tombstones. There is no photography but there is a good...More

Nothing scary, but be aware that you move under the ground and in a narrow path. As long as your children are not afraid, you would enjoy it.
