Overall rating

4.6

It was a very interesting visit and full of culture, to accentuate these traits there was the guide Diana, a fabulous girl who was able to explain and make us understand things better, developing even more curiosity in us. Furthermore, the price is perfect because it includes entrance to two catacombs and a church. And it also allows you to have a discount on another cultural attraction (the Veiled Son). I really enjoyed these visits and am very satisfied with the service

Fascinating, interesting tour made magical by the super-prepared guide, I would say in love with his job. (boy with tail)

That we could go to catacombs of San Gaudioso for free and the story of the guide.

Excellent, a wonderful surprise. I highly recommend it to everyone

Parking on site was possible without any problems.
