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

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 had 5 days to spend in Rome and planned to see all the major sites. We had read about the Catacombs and wanted to visit them. We originally thought the site was to far south to visit due to cost of transportation. But we...More

I've been to Rome a number of times and have seen most of the sites so we were looking for something different this time. We visited with a guide (it's impossible to do without a guide) as it is a huge rabbit warren. Miles and...More

Not a long tour, but very interesting. Guide was clear and very knowledgeable. There were some steps, but not extremely strenous. Very cool inside on a hot day.

The management of the catacombs is very efficient and if there is any queue usually is short. Public transportation is good, but if you are short in time, may be better to try a trip to the catacombs area by taxi. When in... More
