Important information

Know before you go

  • Due to the delicate nature of the surroundings, travelers cannot visit the catacombs independently; all visits must be part of a guided group
  • Catacomb tours are not recommended for travelers who may get claustrophobic due to the small spaces; the tour is not accessible to visitors n wheelchairs or with severe motor disabilities
  • Catacombs are holy places, so guests should dress appropriately—all should cover their shoulders and thighs. It’s best also to have a light jacket, as it can get cold underground
  • Visitors with specific disabilities may be entitled to a free ticket after speaking directly to the ticket office of the catacombs
  • For the combo option, the Catacombs and Trevi underground are in two different locations. You will visit the catacombs first and then the Trevi Underground

The guided tour in the catacombs was excellent. The guide friendly and knowledgeable. But the organization wasn’t. We arrive and the meeting point. Waited 20 minutes until decided to go into information and it turned out we should had gone in on the first place to sign up and see a movie. Missed the beginning and waited in vain. We were taken to a bus that took us to the catacombs but then left there with unclear instructions about the way back. On site told us that bus left and we were calling for a taxi when the bus came back. We were lost at all times.

Easy and interesting experience, very conveniently located for transportation. The people are friendly and the bus brings your straight there. I only gave 4 stars because you could go to those catacombs and get the same exact tour for €10 plus whatever your cost of a cab, so if I knew that I may have chosen that as a cheaper route

First of all, the film was great, contrary to expectations. You could imagine everything better what we had seen before. But there is no word in the film about catacombs. The catacombs themselves were impressive, the sheer size... Ride in the panorama bus passed several sights but no comment. All in all we would probably book it again
