Is Rome Catacombs Tour Worth it?

Having an in-depth view of Catacomb will enable you to know about this beautiful city’s history. Popes were buried in these Catacombs, and the Christians would take their benches and tables to these tunnels for the home worship for their religion.

It is not only about the history and spoken stories related to the Rome Catacombs. It is a creative underground art gallery hidden in Rome. There are paintings, frescoes, and artworks that are said to be the precious collection of Christians. No doubt, it is a wonder how these masterpieces are preserved so beautifully even after years.

However, when you visit the Rome Catacombs, keep warm clothes and sweaters with you as it might get cold because it is constructed underground.

Assem was an outstanding guide. He personalized the experience to our interests and went out of his way to make it an incredible morning. The surprise at the end was the best! (I won't spoil it for you) Book with Assem, you won't regret it.

Great guide and tour

This is a good way to experience Rome outside the main attractions. We enjoyed Assem. He is very knowledgeable and interested in sharing his love of Rome and it’s history. I would probably skip the catacombs portion, to be honest. Too many other things to see that are more interesting to me and my family.

Appian Way and Outskirts of Rome

We really enjoyed this morning tour of the outskirts of Rome. We got to see some beautiful views of the city, as well as some of the catacombs and the Appian Way. Assem was a great guide!

Wonderful tour - highly recommend

This tour was great and it was so nice to see parts of Rome that we wouldn't have found on our own. I would highly recommend the tour. Assem is also a great guide. We did this tour and the Colosseum tour with him during our time in Rome. We learned so much from him during both!

A different Rome and a great guide

This review is somewhat overdue (in Rome early December) but I would be remiss if I didn't mention that this tour was a wonderful way to spend a few hours in Rome! Our tour guide, Assem, was personable, knowledgeable and appeared to truly enjoy showing us the sights. It was thrilling to walk on the Appian Way, look through "the keyhole" at St Peter's Basilica and witness the firing of the canon to remind churches to ring their bells. And some of the scenery was spectacular! I highly recommend Assem and this tour. Don't miss it.

Wonderful Tour and Great Guide!

What a splendid morning! This was a fantastic escape from the hustle and bustle of Rome! This was my fourth visit and I was able to see some incredible things that I have never seen before! Assem was fantastic! He is incredibly knowledgable and a wonderful guide! He offers a variety of other tours all in smaller group type settings. I would recommend making him your go to tour guide for anything in Rome and beyond on a variety of day trips!

Great Experience!

Assem was very kind, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The tour was low key and mostly tranquil, a nice contrast from the hectic atmosphere of many popular tourist sites. It was a nice way to spend our last morning in Rome before catching an afternoon train out, well timed with a couple of unexpected touches. Thank you, Assem!

Excellent guide and marvelous tour

The tour was great, but what really made it an experience was our guide, Julia. Her knowledge of her subject was exceptional and her presentation was outstanding. She was able to present sensitive topics with great care and empathy, but she was also able to add a touch of humor that made the trip truly memorable. I would definitely take any other tours she was conducting.
