  • The depth of the catacombs alone are awe inspiring. Get ready for the temperature change, it’s a great experience overall. No photos or video allowed inside though and there aren’t any skeletons. Even still it is well worth the trip.
  • Really nice place to visit. Was a little crowded but tickets were still available. Really interesting to hear the tourguide we had a lady who spook good english and was good to hear. Really interesting place. With allot of history. Nice park to walk to
