  • Lieu très intéressant. Guide des catacombes agréable. Visite un peu trop "cadrée" à notre goût mais compréhensible étant donné le nombre de visiteurs dans différentes langues. L'aller et retour en autocar nous a permis de voir Rome différemment qu'à pied. Le fait d'avoir un guide qui parlait allemand puis français dans notre casque m'a un peu dérangé. Visite des catacombes suivie de 2 basiliques ' un peu long peut être...J'aurais préféré passer plus de temps dans les catacombes. Joëlle et Christophe
