Overall rating

3.8 / 5

based on 20 reviews

Not spectacular, but like all underground sights in Rome, historically interesting. Apparently part of the only authentic prison in Rome; prison terms such as from the 'Enlightenment' to today did not exist. In addition, there is the legend of Peter and Paul... Right next to the Capitol, so worth a detour!

The staff was very nice and helpful. There is a museum part you go through before you go down to the prison. It was very sobering to see where Paul and Peter were imprisoned.

Very well organized excursions and great assistance for every question and / or need! Talented Adalgisa of piazza Navona! Thank you!
