We had a spectacular tour guide. I did not catch his name, but he projected his voice well so everyone could hear, and his English was excellent. A few days after this, we also visited the Catacombs of Priscilla and were very disappointed in that...More

The tour was very interesting and was different to the other catacomb I have been to in Naples. However, it was very bad that photos were not allowed. It is a good place to stop along Via Appia Antica.

The walk down the Via Appia Anitca Road was interesting if a little fraught as there are no pavements as such. However, when you get into the catacombs area it's virtually traffic free as there is a one-way system to the car park. You can...More

We got over that there were no bones to see like in paris but the tour guide was excellent and seeing the intact mausoleums were the highlight of our trip.

Go down out on the Appian way, which is historic enough in itself, to see these amazing catacombs. We had a ticket as part of a big bus tour, which has a separate route out to the catacombs. A guided tour is 10 euro via...More

We heard about many different catacombs, but eventually settled on San Sebastiano. This turned out to be a great decision! We arrived early on a monday so there where no crowds. The staff was very friendly and they have guided tours in many languages. Our...More

I've been to Rome several times, but never to the Catacombs. I decided this time my daughter and I would explore the San Sebastian Catacombs and I'm glad we did. I had no idea they were so deep and so many layers. It was a...More

Take the Big Bus tour. It stops Right in front of the catacombs. Otherwise, You’ll have to take the metro and a taxi which is less convenient and more expensive in the long run.
