My favorite part of these catacombs was the beautiful church that still gives mass today. The church and the ceiling are beautiful. The tour costs EUR 8 and is offered in English and Spanish. Along with seeing burial chambers, you will also see nicely preserved...More

The catacombs is very heavily touristed and crowded (I recommend Catacomb St. Domitilla) but there is a Bernini sculpture in the church and the church is not crowded at all.

Read up on Sabastian before you go. He is listed in Foxe's Book of Martyrs. This Catacombe is named for him. I wish the tour guide would have touched on this more. This is where an evangelical tour would be beneficial. No photos are allowed...More

Nice experience, one of the many catacombs of Rome. Located on multiple levels make sure you get a jacket with you, the lower you get the colder it gets. The guide was funny, interesting and the tour took around 1 hour. I would recommend a...More

It is a little off the beaten track outside of Rome, but, well worth a visit. The sights, lack of sounds, and history here is truly exciting. The guide, who spoke perfect English, was full of interesting and surprising information. Dress warm, even when the...More

although outside the centre it was worth the visit. something different from your usual churches-chapels etc. take something to wear on top as it can get cold underground

A bit out of the way, this tour was both informative and impressive. Definitely a cool option on a hot day in Rome.

From memory, we took a bus too. It stops directly outside the catacombs. Only thing to factor in is the frequency- make sure you plan your trip around the return times. This is the definitely the cheapest option, but very... More
