  • Catacombs with Ella and the kids

    We loved our tour of the Catacombs and our guide, Raffaella (a.k. Ella) was very personable and knowledgeable. She had a great rapport with our kids right from the beginning and they hung on her every word through the tour. She helped us with other non-tour-related questions, which we greatly appreciated! Would definitely recommend this tour, Ella and LivTours.

  • We loved every minute of this tour

    This kids tour of the catacombs was great fun for them... and for us adults as well! Gio established a wonderful rapport with the kids right from the start and had organized projects and special questions and, of course, a treasure hunt to keep them enthralled throughout the tour. The catacombs are indeed fascinating for all ages but there are alot of layers of history to have to follow in order to understand why and how they were created. This was really the best way to have our kids experience this site and to be able to go home with great stories to tell their friends. Thanks LivItaly!

  • The kids LOVED it

    It's not easy to travel with kids but LivItaly provides some really wonderful family experiences that help keep everyone engaged and entertained. Case in point: the Catacombs Treasure Hunt tour. Our kids (7, 9 and 11) had a blast! Of course, going down into the catacombs is fascinating for all ages but with the treasure hunt project for them to do, they got so much more out of the tour and have gone home with memories that will last! Our thanks to Giulia, our fantastic guide, and to LivItaly for such a great idea!!

  • Fantastic family tour of the Catacombs

    This was hands down the best tour our family could have chosen. We have done other tours with LivItaly so we knew the quality of the product! Our kids were real anxious to see the Catacombs and having the treasure hunt booklet that our guide Davide provided was great fun for them. It got them looking carefully at everything and really engaged them in the tour and the stories that Davide was telling us. He connected immediately with all of them (he has kids of his own, he said) and we adults really appreciated his attentiveness and expert knowledge! Great tour! Strongly recommend!
