  • Really an original tour! I loved this trip in time and in the bowels of the Earth... the tour is necessarily guided but it's only € 8 (€ 5 for children)... and you have the choice between Italian, Spanish, English, German, Portuguese and french! were only 6 of us in our group with a very friendly and competent guide! I really recommend this tour: line 118 bus will take you from Piazza Venezia to 500 meters from the site. On the way, make a stop at the Church "Quo Vadis?" However no pictures! Ban within the ☹️ site

  • We found these catacombs by chance when we prepare the journey in a blog that your visit, and the truth that surprised us and much, we had never visited a catacombs and I would now recommend as a must-visit. We were in transport audience from the center of the city and do not remember story time took to arrive, but was not much, are nearby. Price we don't remember how much cost, but it was not exorbitant. You can only be the visit with guide otherwise it would be easy to get lost. The visits are in several languages and several hours throughout the day, upon arrival we had to wait a bit until it reached our time to enter, but becomes enjoyable since you can stroll in the surrounding area and is a beautiful area. I said IMPRESINCIBLE.

  • I left it for the ultino day and the truth that had been a mistake not to go. For me one of the things most relaxed of Rome! In addition to the price of the tour gets a guided tour, which in my case was great. You could see that the person understood the story well and liked.
