I took the 30 minute guided tour which was very informative. I joined the German tour, which was relatively small and meant it wasn't very crowded in the narrow spaces. The catacombs are basically empy (no bones) but still tell an interesting story about Roman...More

I do not know what I expected, and it definitely was not it, but yet it was not much better. The access is guided, and the tour guides unfortunately clearly come off as if they have done the tour a thousand times already. Do not...More

This was a great, less crowded experience for my family on our recent trip to Rome. The main Rome sights can be a bit crowded and this catacomb trip was a nice afternoon trip. Our tour guide was excellent and we were given an extensive...More

Take the 118 bus (towards Appia/villa Dei Quintili) and get off at Catacombe S.callisto stop. The bus stop is right in between the Colosseo metro stop and the Colosseum.
