Due to Covid we could not visit the Basilica of St. Clemente. Unfortunately, there was no information about this in advance! We had attached particular importance to this, as it was our 4th visit to Rome. We had already visited the church we visited instead. What a shame! The visit to the Domitilla Catacombs was very interesting, albeit a relatively short one. We would have liked to see more of the 17 km. Our German guide, an older man, was probably of the opinion that everything looks the same anyway. The whole tour should take 3 hours, but unfortunately it was only a good 2. The price of 59 euros was too high.

Our tour guide Sabrina was absolutely amazing. She was very knowledgeable and passionate. The three hours flew by and at the end of the tour my partner and I were both of the opinion that it was the best tour we EVER did! Many thanks Sabrina!
