Mines, catacombes and mushroom farms! We were able to go on an underground tour in the roman "mines", where the romans dug out material to make their concrete. Inside the mines there were catacombs as well and a history of reuse of the ancient mines as mushroom farms. What an amazing experience. Our guide, Guiseppe, had so much knowledge, both on the site, roman history, etruscan history an spiced it all up with anecdotes about religion and general history. I will highly recommend this tour if you are interested in archeology and history in general. This was something different, apart from the beaten track. We loved it!

The tour was awesome to say the least. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour fun. You get to learn more about Rome from the ancient times to history that happened within the last few hundred years. Half of the tour you need to use headlamps (which are provided), and you are able to see caves and catacombs. it is very different from other catacombs tours.
I had an awesome time, it was definitely a very fun and unique tour. Highly recommend.

So informative and entertaining. I really enjoyed the tour. It was more than I expected. I really like the information conveyed throughout the tour, not to mention everything I was able to see. Thanks to Daniela and Roberto for the visit. I highly recommend.

Great tour of little known history and building of Rome, with friendly and knowledgeable guide and insightful remarks. Kids up to ten free! Will definitely take another tour with them. I had tour in Italian. Bombing experience (sounds and light) with sirens and cannons included.

Recently we had two guided tours in Rome with Luca Di Trapano as our guide. He had suggested possible areas to explore and the results were excellent. On the first afternoon we toured the catacombs and St. Clemente Church. Since we were tired from our overnight flight from the US these were perfect venues. Luca kept us moving, provided many "insider" details and made the history very interesting. Probably the highlight og yhr day though was lunch at "Historica Antica Rome" as picked out by Luca. Our host was the owner Paulo who turned out to be an excellent fit with us. The restaurant is located in an old (Roman time) columbarium which made for a unique dining experience. the food was the best we had on the whole trip. I can especially recommend the Roman style lasagna (no tomatoes!) and the Pecorino cheese.
Our second day was spent at the Colliseum and Roman forum. Luca's knowledge and his involvement of all of us in a Roman play made the visit very enjoyable. He obviously put some thought into making our time there quite enjoyable. He was sensitive to our timing need and provided excellent ransportation for our jpirneys around Rome. I would highly recommend him for his service, knowledge and friendly attitude.

We visited Saint Callisto's Catacomb, Basilica of St Clemente and the Crypt of Cappucini (via Veneto). Our guide was very thorough explaining the history of Rome throughout the tour. It became clear to me that the Rome that I see has several layers down below and there lies monuments and buildings from the past like a "lasagna". He was very creative using his i pad extensively. In short, a very efficient and learning experience, that pleased even the most demanding New Yorker who has visited Rome manyl times before. Special thanks for our guides Marco Tavola and Luca Di Trapano.

We were lightly disappointed by this visit, expecting a longer and complete tour due to the original size of the stadium Domitian. The area includes only one of the entrances to the stadium and part of the steps before ending the tour at the surface, in Piazza Navona. The guide was available and competent. They provided headphones to hear the explanation of the guide also at distance.

During our stop in the port of Naples we decided to do something different and I came across this tour and so glad we did. Our guide Marta was extremely knowledgeable, spoke very good English, friendly, engaging, and paced the tour just right. There was over 130 steps to walk down and not once did we feel rushed as we descended 40 meters below and walked through some very narrow passages which she described and advised for anyone who may have been claustrophobic. A few people opted to wait and not enter the very narrow and low ceiling passages. It was also a nice escape from the heat!
This tour was definitely one to remember and encourage visitors in Naples to sign up for, as this was one of those tours that you did not want to end and a curiosity to learn more. Worth every penny!!!

It was a great tour of the Capuchin Monastery where we saw three chapels that were decorated with the bones of the monks plus a museum. Then they took us to the Priscilla Catacombs which we chose because although they are smaller than the other sites, they have drawings made by ancient Christians including what is believed to be the first drawing of the Virgin and the child Jesus. Then they took us to the Basilica Santa Maria in Travestere, one of the most grandiose basilicas because the complete altar is made of some the oldest mosaics you will see in Rome.

After returning from a cruise on NCL's Jade from Venice to Rome, our group on 12 wanted an afternoon tour of Rome's underground. We contacted Luca. Our decision to have him be our guide was the right one - He is the Best. We toured the Catacombs and St. Clemente's.

Luca is knowledge, flexible and fun. He brings history alive. I especially like his use of the I pad to make the picture even clearer. He encourages and answers all questions. You never feel rushed. As an added plus, he speaks excellent English.
