Overall rating

The Mamertine prison was self guided by sreaming audio. The exhibit employees had a difficult time getting the app to work on many of our phones. After that, we were able to view the exhibits and visit a prison cell (tradition says that Peter was held in that cell). The catacombs tour was live. The Guide presented historical, geological, and archeological information pertinent to what we were seeing. overall, a good tour.

Our tour was wonderful and definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Rome! Loved the guide and the experience. Highly recommend!!!!
