I went with my girlfriend to the catacombs, and our tour guide was excellent, she was very knowledgable, however, we didn't spend much time down there when we was told the tour was 2 hours, which was disappointing, considering the fact the catacombs is 11...More

My wife and I visited in early June. On the day we were there, we waited only 5 minutes for the English tour to begin (you cannot do it on your own). The group was quite large and we were at back so we couldn't...More

Did a tour with city sight seeing Roma. The shuttle bus picked us up near the main bus terminal. The sight is amazing. It's obviously underground and the tour guide was very informed. The story of the early Christians in Rome is so important to...More

It is a little difficult to reach the catacombs by public transport. You can walk from the next subway station in about 30 minutes or take the bus. When we reached there, we were alone, so we thought it was closed, but it seems that...More

If you had to choose one of the many catacombs in Rome to visit choose this one. Not very expensive (8 euros). Took the English tour, great well-informed guide. A little outside the main city but worth a visit.

We visited this site as part of the Grande Prairie Army Cadets tour of Italy. We thought that this would be like the catacombs in Paris with lots of bones displayed but there are none. Lots of tunnels that you walk through with dugouts where...More

The St Sebastian Catacombs and Cathedral Tour was real unique but the tour was too short. Lots of information but you didn't get see much. The Cathedral was amazing.

according to their website they are closed between mid Dec and mid Jan (Chiusura annuale: metà dicembre - metà gennaio)
Hi, we will be in Rome this February 2016 and I'm wondering if we should book a tour of the catacombs or buy tickets at the site. We only have a few days and don't want to waste time in long queues. Also, as they seem to be outside the centre, tips on how to get there and other places to visit when there would be great… advice and recommendations welcome please!

The management of the catacombs is very efficient and if there is any queue usually is short. Public transportation is good, but if you are short in time, may be better to try a trip to the catacombs area by taxi. When in... More
