This is worth the trip especially if you can’t stand the hourds of desperate tourists at the main roman sites. The church is a tiny 7th century gem, the catacombs tour is short but interesting but the crowning glory is the mausoleum. Stunning for being...More

We loved the catacombe tour. Lasted 30-45 minutes, great for short attention spans. Inexpensive - I think 8 euro for adults, 5 euro for children. Small group. No microphone, no earbuds needed, the guide talked directly to the group. The guide is easy to understand...More

Crypt inside church contains body of St Agnes whilst her head is in the Agnes in Agony church in Piazza Novona. So an opportunity to put the pieces together:) Tour guide speaks English very well. Small catacomb but many intact graves and exposed bones not...More

You don't have to make the trip just to see the church. There are enough beautifull churches in the city centre. I went there to see the catacombs (because of the positive comments I read). Unfortunally, the catacombs were already closed when I got there....More

Beautiful place from 4th century with a quiet garden that leads to Mausoleo di Santa Constanza, also part of same complex. You can take tour into the well preserved catacombs below the church, almost 2000 years old. The tourguide is very knowledgeable and explains a...More
