Vad du kommer att göra

Literally the coolest tour in Rome! We go underground where it is 16°C (60°F for us Yankees) a great way to beat the heat when you want to avoid the cattle drive at the Vatican or burning alive in the Forum and Colosseum. With over 300 km of underground tunnels surrounding Rome, even if you go out there alone, they will not let you go down by yourself, only with a guide to assure you don't get lost and become a permanent resident.
With 10 years guiding experience under my belt, I will take you off the beaten path and bring ancient Roman society to life, telling the Stories behind the art and architecture. Showing you the masterpieces that you absolutely have to see before you leave Rome.
We first go down to the Basilica that was built at the end of the 4th century AD above the tomb of the two martyrs Nereus and Achilleu. Then we will walk down further to the Best Preserved Catacombs of Rome, which spread over 17 kilometers of underground caves laid out on four levels. I will introduce you to the early Christian community of Imperial Rome, and of Catholicism in the city between the 2nd and 9th centuries. Ending near the Appia Antica where you are free to continue your Adventures.

I am an American living in Rome, Italy for over fifteen years. Married to an Italian, I Graduated from The American University of Rome. Working as a tour guide in and around Rome. I have a passion for history, travel and Italian Cuisine. Laughter is the key ingredient to a fulfilling life and humor is big part of what I bring to every experience. Master storyteller, my tours tend to be humorous bordering on Blasphemous. I focus on the stories behind the art, artist, architecture and Archaeology. Lets face it, nobody remembers all the the names and dates. They remember the Stories

We had Andy as a guide, and it was a great tour! Andy has extensive knowledge about Roman history and is very funny. This trip is highly recommended!

I thought Andy was a great guide. I didn’t know what to expect as I knew nothing about the catacombs or how they came about. I thought the tour was designed perfectly with the introduction to start and then the tour. It was just the right amount of time and enough information to learn something but not too much to be boring. I’d definitely recommend this tour!

This is an excellent experience, not to be missed on your trip to Rome. We did not get to see the frescoes in the cover photo, but I’m guessing that certain parts of the catacombs are closed at random times, so maybe that’s a hit and miss situation. Andy was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. It’s really important to have a good guide because knowing the history behind the catacombs adds a whole other dimension to the experience. Next, It’s important to be aware of three things: First, traffic can be BAD in Rome, and the catacombs are outside the city walls, so you should allow plenty of time to get there: plan to arrive about 10- 15 minutes early, just in case. We were 15 minutes late due to traffic, and although Michael was great about allowing us to reschedule, we still wasted $20 on an Uber ride. Second, the catacomb tickets are CASH ONLY so you must remember to bring cash because there are no ATMs at the catacombs. Side note: The exchange rates are terrible in Rome (even at the ATMs), so I strongly suggest you get a couple hundred in euros before traveling to Italy. (Street vendors also don’t take credit cards, plus, you always want cash for tipping and emergencies). Finally, in this case, Uber was way more than a taxi (€20 instead of €14) so be sure you do your research and plan your transportation in advance.

Divan was our tour guide and he was an absolute delight! So knowledgeable, and that’s because he’s spent years studying this time period. He’s exactly who you’d want taking you into the catacombs, which is in itself an incredible experience. He was such a great guide that we signed up for another tour the next day. Don’t miss out!

Otrolig historia som ligger under Rom, mycket bra guidning. Den killen kunde sin sak (vi hade inte Michael utan…. Glömt namnet)

I can't say enough about this gracious host. Because I PASSED OUT underground for unclear reasons. The host reasonably could have shoved me into one of the bunk bed resting spots and moved on. Instead, he and a church employee hauled me up the steep stairs and revived me with hot tea. The church employee was definitely an angel as he kept murmuring, "Calma! Calma!" and wrapped me in his own coat as I was shivering. It was cold! He needed his coat! My heart rate dropped to 46! It's never happened before. The host sweetly packed me into a taxi and later texted me a get well message. Later the same day I dropped like a tree in line at the Vatican. All I can say is that the host for this experience is every bit as nice as the Pope's physician! You are in good hands!
