What a place! It’s not in the middle of the city. You will need a taxi or to drive there. The tours are great and open to questions. Worth getting out of the metro area of Rome to experience this.
I really enjoyed my visit here. The staff was so helpful and friendly. My friend and I missed our first reservation and the staff told us when to come back and where to go. We came back later in the day and on time. I don’t have pictures underground since you are not allowed. But before you go underground, it is beautiful and a relaxing atmosphere. I hope to come back here again.
