Great
Fantastic tour, I wish you could pick your tour guide…if you could I would say you have to take this tour with Federico! He was AMAZING! Super engaging, knowledgeable, born and raised Roman, and loves his job. One of the most entertaining tours I’ve ever been on.

I wasn’t quite sure what I signed up for and the what I saw wasn’t what I expected, simply because I just blindly booked this tour based on a review from a friend, but the guide was great and I saw some really interesting artifacts and history of Rome I was unaware of. The guide was Francesca (I believe) and she had a great sense of humor. If you’re into morbid stuff, definitely do this your!

Had such a great day! Our guide, Chiara, was phenomenal and so much fun! Very knowledgeable and passionate about the stops on the tour. The air conditioned bus with Fabrizio wasn’t a bad perk either! We had a great time.

Our Guide was incredible. She was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour itself was good. The aqueducts were my favorite. The bone art was odd and felt rushed due to the number of people.

Frederico was the most fantastic tour guide! The best! I can’t stress that enough! Very well informed and entertaining. The tour was interesting. The bine chapel both fascinating and very morbid. The catacombs interesting, and the end tomb entrance and church stunning. Would’ve liked more time in the church but tour is on a strict schedule. The aqueduct at the end was a real contrast and we thoroughly r joyed the day.

FAQs

IMPORTANT: What should I wear?
The bone crypts beneath churches are holy places so attire must be appropriate for the visit. Both men and women are asked to wear clothing that covers at least the shoulders and knees. Walks cannot be held responsible for denied entry due to improper dress. It is sufficient to bring extra coverings with you and put them on before our entrance to the holy areas.
Can I take pictures at the sites visited on the Crypts and Catacombs tour?
Taking pictures in the bone crypts is strictly prohibited. In the Catacombs, pictures are allowed but you are not allowed to shoot any frescoes with flash photography because of the effect that flash has on the paint.
Is this tour wheelchair accessible?
No. Unfortunately, due to site restrictions we cannot accommodate wheelchairs on this tour. If you use a wheelchair and book this tour by accident, we are happy to offer you credit for a future tour that is wheelchair accessible anywhere in the world, or a full refund.
I'm claustrophobic, will I be okay on this tour?
The Roman Catacombs are composed of narrow passagways that run deep underground. These can definitely cause problems for people who suffer from claustrophobia.
