  • Equipment

    We recommend the use of comfortable shoes for the long walking paths. On rainy days, especially in fall and winter seasons, bring jackets (better if waterproof) to be worn in the underground or more humid areas and umbrellas for the open-air spaces. In sunny days, especially in spring and summer seasons, we also recommend the use of hats or any other sunshades because there are wide areas without any shades. Make also sure of adopting a proper dress code for the several places of worship: in particular, avoid short dresses, skirts or short pants and far too plunging necklines.
  • Accessibility

    This is an inclusive guided tour designed with love, maximum care and special attention to every people with special mobility needs. The walking path is thoughtfully studied to cause the least possible inconvenience, nevertheless some sections of the historic alleys and underground archaeological sites could be characterized by stairways, narrow spaces or uneven surfaces, being more difficult to access for wheelchairs or strollers. But, we will do our utmost to help you and make your experience pleasant.
