We toured San Sebastiano catacombe and thought it was great until we went up the road a little further and visited the Catacombs of San Callisto. There was much more too see and the guide we had was excellent.

Well worth the rather complicated journey to reach this absolutely fascinating with multi language tours which are very well presented, this is a great facility well worth the visit.

This tour definitely goes to some less visited sites, for those interested in going beyond the typical Vatican, Coliseum, Forum, etc. sites. While we had one tour bus with about 35 people on it, there were 2 guides assigned which made the group smaller and more enjoyable. The catacombs were very interesting, and humbling, from a historical perspective. The bone monks were also unusual. The church was wonderful too. With 4 different and individually interesting layers, the site was really unique. I think our tour guide categorized it best as “archeological lasagna.” Speaking of which, our guide was a wonderful American named Rebecca. She was terrific! Her energy and passion for Rome was contagious, and really made the tour enjoyable. Plus, the lack of a language barrier was really nice for a change. Overall, we really enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try something a little different in Rome.

The half hour tour flew by but it was absolutely incredible! There are completely preserved "dead houses" where the richer Romans buried family members - still with paintings on the walls and ceilings. You can take the archeological bus or grab a pretty cheap taxi (they will pass by every 5-10 mins). Clean (free!) bathrooms and food available on site.

7 miles of tunnels under rome and 100,000 dead bodies (obviosly not on show) tour wasn't boring good value for tour included.
