This is off the beaten path but worth the trip. Maybe the best catacombs in Rome. Really enjoyed the tour, which was led by an archaeologist and lasted about 45 minutes. The frescoes are really vibrant. You have to go to the website in advance...More

Good value, interesting guided tour. Book tickets in advance - very efficient, helpful and committed staff. Can be tricky to get to by public transport, but well worth the trip. One of Rome’s better kept secrets.
