We booked with a tour company for a Christian tour of Rome which included the Catacombs di Priscilla. We were very fortunate as the Catacombs are closed to the public on Mondays but our tour company got us in. We were the only 4 tourists there at that time which was great. Our tour company's own guide took us through the Catacombs. It was a fascinating and incredible place with the burial niches winding like a maze under the convent. We actually did see some bones that we were told most public tours do not get to see, but most have been removed. The paintings were interesting and included the oldest known image of the Virgin Mary. It's kind of a spooky place but its historical significance far outweighs its spookiness.
