Really enjoyed this tour. Was nice to get out of the city of Rome and see the countryside on the way. We used an app buy a 24-hour city bus ticket for the day and rode a city bus to and from the location. We used Google maps to guide us to the stops and to choose the buses that come regularly every 15-20 min or so and it was no problem. Great price and not much more than the cost of the entry ticket to the Catacombs themselves without the tour.

It was a good tour--short but very interesting and the guide was well informed and very good. The place is not huge to be sure. The big disappointment was not being allowed to take pictures. I might have missed this in the description but certainly, experiencing a place like this can be made even more memorable with pictures and these days, smart phones don't require flash and there are no human remains so I would not think it would be considered disrespectful. Not being able to take pictures was a big let down.

Guided tour in German sometimes difficult to understand. Questions are answered very briefly. Interesting place. Worth seeing. Registration required for a German-language online tour (beginning of May).
