English tour with my two friends. Challenging if you have mobility issues. The guide was very good at explaining the history and religious meanings. Remains are not on display.

Our tour included the Catacoomb di Priscilla and The Capuccine Monastery . Both were fabulous as was our tour guide who was passionate about his subject. We were only a small party of about 10.

You have to go on a guided tour. Also worth noting that they close for lunch, so definitely best to contact them by e-mail or telephone to check availability
