Viaje ao longo da antiga Via Ápia romana e explore os seus antigos aquedutos, catacumbas e zona rural nesta excursão de 3 horas. Fuja do barulho e da agitação da cidade para explorar a zona rural com o seu guia. Visite as Catacumbas da San Callisto ou San Sebastiano – consideradas alguns dos mais interessantes locais de sepultamento remanescentes em Roma – e explore seu labirinto de túneis subterrâneos. Admire as proezas da engenharia da Roma antiga, com seus incríveis aquedutos, e saiba mais sobre uma das mais fascinantes civilizações antigas da história mundial.
Infelizmente aconteceram alguns problemas com o ônibus e nós tivemos que ficar esperando por quase uma hora para que resolvessem o problema e pudéssemos ir. Por causa disto, a guia teve que correr um pouco com o programa. A visita às catacumbas foi bem rápida e ficamos somente 5 minutos na Via Apia Antica. Descemos do ônibus rapidamente para tirar umas fotos porque eles tinha horário para chegar. Chegamos no horário que chegaríamos se tudo corresse bem.. Ainda enfrentamos um engarrafamento horrível devido a uma manifestação e o motorista teve que ir por outro caminho atrasando mais ainda a viagem. Pensei que iriamos chegar em Roma mais tarde mas não foi o que aconteceu. Perdemos no mínimo uma hora de excursão!
This was a great way to the see the Catacombs and Appian Way. We thought of doing it ourselves but were glad we did a tour. It was a big area and without a tour, I could see us wandering about not knowing where we were supposed to go (like we saw others doing). Our guide, Marcelo, was great. He gave us tips about Rome and we sort of wished we had done this within our first few days there rather than towards the end.
This tour started with a bus trip to the Catacombs. The trip was interesting to see other parts of Rome besides the central tourist bits. The Catacombs were interesting but not top level exciting. Still worth a look. Probably was expecting a lot of bones but none there. Then had a look at a bit of the Appian Way then to a section of aqueduct. All interesting and well presented and described. Not to much walking, about the right amount. Nice to sit in the bus for short trips as well. Big bus, only a dozen people on it so tons of room. A nice morning.
Mariah was a superb tour guide. She speaks several different languages and the tour was both informative and entertaining. She spoke individually to all the tour guests and even helped us find restaurants after the tour was finished. Would definitely recommend this tour and especially Mariah.
Tatia was amazing!!!! She was a history major and really knew her information. Patient, provided a great narration to all of us. What I liked most was the small group we were with...it kept things on track and we felt as though we had personal attention. I would recommend this as one of the best tours of Rome!!
