This was a special visit for our family of 15! I did not book a tour, but a multimedia tour for my family, but when the guide saw we had a rather large group, one of the guides took us around the museum and into...More
Went in with the Omnia card so it was free (would recommend as I wouldn't pay to enter due to the size of the place, it is very small). Me and my friend did not pay the extra to use the tablets which I feel...More
For those with an interest in biblical history or who find visiting sites associated with biblical events, these few rooms are well worth adding to the itinerary. There is fairly solid evidence that Paul the apostle was imprisoned at this site just prior to his...More
Hard to find and not worth the effort. Nothing to see here. If there were guided tours, it might be worth something, but the offer slow tablets that are pretty much pointless. So much more could be made of this. You could easily be in...More
We booked online to attend the Mamertine Prison, we were booked for the 5pm session, there was one other couple already in inside, when we arrived we had no confirmation with us, we asked them to check our reservation under our name, they advised very...More
I can't put into words what it was like to be actually standing in the prison where the Apostle Paul wrote 2nd Timothy and the Apostle Peter wrote 2nd Peter as they both, at separate times, awaited their execution. "God hath not given us the...More
The price of admission to see Mamertine Prison is €10. The only form of payment acceptable is by card, no cash. Considering the fact that the prison consists of a small upper chamber and a smaller lower chamber (where the inmates were kept while waiting...More
Two of the most significant figures in the Bible, the apostles Paul and Peter, were imprisoned at this site. It really brings to life the significance of the times as early Christianity clashed with Rome.
Pro Tip: the site is not open too late so...More
We had Omnia cards so did not have to pay an additional entrance fee. The prison is only small with a few cells but it is a very special place. It is humbling to be where Peter and Paul were once imprisoned. Its nice to...More
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here. Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its ancient beginnings to its 21st century transformations. Whether it’s those historical playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
neighbourhood packs a cultural punch and then some. Screaming scooters, battling buses, crazy cars, and lots of foot traffic converge in the area all day long. By dusk, a different vibe emerges as the neighbourhood quiets down. Don't be surprised if you find yourself passing through the Piazza Venezia at least once a day, since it’s the most direct way to get from one side of town to another.
