The names of the underground are intriguing as well as the square it is found in. I did the recorded tour which was worth it because I could go at my pace, which was quick. There is not much to see underground, but a few...More

The tour is brief, but packs a surprising amount of information about medieval history, history of Viterbo and the region. A bonus is a small gift shop filled with local delicacies and unique jewelry that is made after ancient Etruscan jewelry patterns. Enjoyed immensely, thanks!

The "guided" tour was definitely interesting and I certainly love to see and hear about Viterbo's underground history but it did leave you wanting much much more. It was a bit short for me to say it's a must see in Viterbo.

A bit over priced and over hyped. The history is interesting and I suppose it gives a different aspect of the city. Don't expect too much though

It was nice to discover the underground used at different periods of history. The audio guides made the discovery interesting with our kids (15 and 10). They both enjoyed the visit, especially since it was short, but to the point and informative. It is still...More

Our enthusiastic guide, with excellent English, took us through the 150 m of underground caves which provided a snapshot from the Entruscan times, through medieval harshness to surviving WW2. In November they intend to extend into another tunnel which will add 500 m traversing to...More

This was a very interesting part of Viterbo history that I knew nothing about. The guide was very informative, she spoke great English, and you could tell she loved the history of the underground tunnels. The tour was very interesting, and I definitely recommend it.
