We went on a City of Wonders tour, and the guides were knowledgeable and friendly. It was amazing to lean about the early Christians.

Tour was really interesting and guide was great - she was able to answer any questions and her English was superb. Only downside is that we would have preferred the tour to be longer.

We took a tour and this was one of the stops. This is really an experience. I highly recommend doing it on a tour. The added info let you know what you were looking at. The only disappointment....no pictures allowed. This was a nice change...More

This tour was amazing! I did another private tour and it was so worth it to have someone there explaining the history and pointing out stuff of interest. Also it is much cooler in the tombs then outside in August so it was a nice...More

The Catacombe's were used by the Christians to bury their dead. This is definately something that you should see while you are in Rome, it is very interesting indeed.

We visited at the end of a long day so my opinion may be jaded. Not what I expected. The highlight was some frescos from the second century.

This was part of a guided tour and was worth the stop. I was not expecting the number, variety and complexity of the catacombs. A multi level structure with huge historical significance. It is a fairly quick tour through the catacombs, but we learned quite...More

The church is really beautiful and pleasingly simple in comparison with others in Rome and together with the catacombs has a surprisingly serene atmosphere, not at all what you'd expect from catacombs. A really lovely visit,if spoiled slightly by the limitations and hurried feel of...More

Tour started in the "underground" church that now has windows. Guide was very knowledgeable and explained the meanings of the icons on the sarcophagi and frescoes. He also explained he history of the tombs and the different types of graves. Our tour was about an...More

Considering there are 12km of catacombs, the tour was very short (only about 20 mins in the actual catacombs plus 10 mins in the church) and we were rushed out at the end. The guide could've been better rehearsed - seemed like she kept thinking...More

We were there in early June, there was no line, and we only had to wait about 15 minutes before our tour. We didn't make any reservations; we just bought tickets there. We took the bus there. It's about a 5 minute walk from... More
