  • Unfortunately it proved true again and again, whether something is good or excellent that often by things off, and especially of the people little presents. In our case, it was as if he had learned the text from walled and down now monotonous pray... The catacombs were very interesting and you got a brief overview of the emergence and development of the plant and the faith of the early Christians. The catacomb differed very little from the neighboring Domitilla catacomb, the leadership was there but much better and that at the same price

  • come with a guide fluent in the french and, in addition, very pedagogue who responded with patience, anecdotes and humor to the children present, we felt a lot of emotion to walk on this earth. That those looking for the morbid and bones go their way... that those who know claustrophobic have no apprehension, corridors are certainly close but very high and perfectly informed, the visit is very informative for those who want to interested! As a bonus, the garden is beautiful and it is possible to have picnics.
