A fascinating insight into Ancient Rome and the lives of the early Christians. The tour was personalised and given in both English and Italian for me and my son. The gelato was also excellent.

We did this experience with two adults and four children (ages ranging 2-10) and it was really great. Debora was very engaging and patient with each of them. We learned a lot and the gelato was really delicious at the end. We hope to do have another experience with her before we leave Rome.

Thank you Deborah for your passionate guidance into the catacombs, you revealed an unknown world to me which was verry educational. I recommend this to anyone who is interested into the dark secrets of ancient Rome.

Hvis du ser etter et tegn på at du bør gjøre dette, så er dette tegnet. Turen min med Debora er den beste airbnb opplevelsen jeg noen gang har opplevd. Aldri har jeg møtt en vert som er så utrolig kunnskapsrik, omtenksom og vennlig. Hun tar deg med på en magisk reise under kirken som få mennesker får oppleve. Fortellingene hun forteller formidles på en interessant måte, og hun sørger for at du alltid føler at du tar del i samtalen. Opplevelsen i gravkammerne er nok veldig subjektiv. For noen kan det virke skummelt, for andre interessant eller til og med fint. Det er noe av de særeste og mest spesielle jeg har tatt del i, og jeg vil virkelig anbefale det til andre. Debora har gitt meg en større forståelse av Italia i middelalderen, og spesielt hvordan livet var for de kristne i Roma. Stor verdi for pengene. Pluss, kaffe, frokost og is er inkludert. Hva mer kan en se etter? Grazie mille, Debora!

Expérience très sympa, qui permet, en plus de découvrir ces catacombes privées, d'en apprendre davantage sur Rome. Deborah partage quelques siècles d'histoire avec passion et plaisir. Très gentille, et en français parfait. Le petit déjeuner est agréable avant de commencer, et la glace a la fin délicieuse. Je confirme que le parfum noisette est un régal ! Très bonne découverte et expérience, n'hésitez pas à prendre une matinée pour vivre cette aventure.
