Please note: Because some of the sites on this small group tour are religious, knees and shoulders must be covered for both men and women at all times. This dress code is strictly enforced and should you not comply, you run the risk of missing parts of the tour. We know that Rome gets quite hot during the summertime - please consider bringing a shawl/scarf/sweater with you to cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.

What to bring?

Q: Is there a dress code to enter the religious sites on this tour?
A: We ask both men and women to cover knees and shoulders, otherwise you may be refused entry to religious sites and miss out on a portion of your tour. We understand the summers in Rome can be hot, so a great alternative is to bring a shawl/scarf/sweater with you. That way, you can cover your knees and shoulders when necessary.
Q: Why does my kid 6 or under have to pay? C'mon!
A: Sorry about this. We're parents too and we understand! Unfortunately, they must be seated due to traffic regulations so they take up a seat in our vehicle. We even bring a car seat for children who require one. If it makes you feel any better, we don't make money off your kids for this tour.
Q: Will we see bones?
A: Yes! This tour visits the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione which houses a 17th-century ossuary under it. There you will see the bones of around 4,000 Capuchin friars!
Q: What Catacomb does this tour visit?
Q: I have trouble walking? Is this tour for me?
A: If you have any doubts about your mobility, we strongly suggest you take a Catacombs Private Tour.

We just finished our 3rd Roman Guy tour in the 2 days we had in Rome! All 3 were wonderful! Our guides, Donata, Minola, & Raf we’re perfect! They were all very knowledgeable and my husband and I felt like we learned a lot of interesting things about Rome. Never boring! I would highly recommend to anyone going to Rome!
Great tour & great guide
We loved our catacomb tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience very interesting and informative
Such an amazing experience! Seeing the 5 chapels and all of the bones adorning the walls were the best part! Definitely a MUST SEE for anyone traveling to Rome!
