Full description
Explore the impressive underground tunnels of the Catacombs of Rome; wander along the rustic Appian Way and under the arches of the aqueducts of antiquity, still preserved from Ancient Rome. Visit the Catacombs of San Callisto and San Sebastiano, once the grave of the martyr Saint Sebastian; you can even take a look inside. See the tomb of Caecilia Metella and gaze in amazement at the original Roman cobblestone streets and the antique aqueducts along the Appian Way.

The tour never came.

The guide did not give us a pick-up time. E-mailed and called several times. Never again! Stocksauer .. I then booked and carried out the tour elsewhere, via apparently more serious providers. You can see it, but it doesn't blow your mind. More interesting in Palermo and Paris.

In the description of the "tour" it specified a "live guide". When the driver arrived at our hotel, he asked where did we want to go. After I showed him the confirmation e-mail he explainned to me he was just suposed to drive us around for 3 hours. The reason we hired this tour was the guide. The name of this app is "Get your guide"! At the middle of our 3h we decided to get our of the car and wall by the Via Appia and read the info on wikipedia instead of wasting time inside a car if no one was going to explain anything... To summarize, my husband and I paid 150 Euros to a ride to the catacombs and after to the coliseum... TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. PS: The driver was very nice and clearly it wasn't his fault.
