I’ve been here several times over the years. It is a very moving experience. Take the bus from the Forum and go!! You will be happy you did.

Don Chuyen was an amazing guide! He gave beautiful explanations of the spiritual richness of the catacombs as well as being well-informed and clear on the facts. He was fantastic! This was definitely a highlight of our Catholic pilgrimage to Rome.

We had a truly wonderful time exploring the Catacombs of St. Callistus. The tour took under an hour and you accessed the 2nd level. The tour guide was very knowledgable and could answer any questions that were asked. We learnt a lot of incredible things!...More
