  • Although he had not intended to visit catacombs, finally convinced me to it, and the truth that I was pleasantly surprised. The visit is carried out with guide and tells you the story of the catacombs which, in turn, is intricately linked to the city of Rome. By the way in the interior photos are not allowed.

  • Faulted, the Organization and guidance. Family 2 adults + 2 children aged 10 years 26 euros (Colosseum + Forum + Palatine 24 for two days) ... so maybe a bit pricey for 40 minutes of experience. Price still aligned on all Roman catacombs ... I reiterate the congratulations to the Organization but personally (catacombs in General) subject to availability of time not I would include experience in the priorities of the visit to the capital. caution important to have your own transportation available.

  • Our guide-Eric, a student of theology Pakistani-introduced us to the ruins with a brief history. The visit lasted about 40 minutes (bring a jacket because it's cool) and it was exciting to as the guide spoke to us of the early Christians, their habits, as the graves were nearly forgotten for a thousand years and the relationship between Christians of the early centuries and death. A short visit but very suitable for tourist audiences. A guide motivated, fun and passionate.
