This place is a must for history buffs and those interested in the history of Christianity. But you need to find out the times of the tours as you can’t just arrive and expect to go in ( we had a 45 min wait with...More

Our tour included the Catacoomb di Priscilla and The Capuccine Monastery . Both were fabulous as was our tour guide who was passionate about his subject. We were only a small party of about 10.

A great experience of an early Christian catacomb, without the mobs of tourists. It takes a little while to get to but it's well worth it. Our guide was informative and had a great sense of humor. Would definitely recommend this.

Extremely interesting place to visit- 40,000 catacombs- not crowded at all - small tours - quite an eerie experience!!! English speaking tour guide who was very informative and passionate about the subject. Small gift shop but no cafe nearby be warned! Take water/drink with you....More

This is an interesting place, but really not much to see. We were a little disappointed. Whatever you do, don’t take a tour of this through City Wonders - it was a huge disappointment.

We reserved a time before our trip to Rome, but upon arrival there were many people waiting for the tour. Needless to say, the group seemed rather large to navigate the underground cemetery. The history behind the catacombs is fascinating. You actually walk through the...More

You have to go on a guided tour. Also worth noting that they close for lunch, so definitely best to contact them by e-mail or telephone to check availability
