    Very nice old church and crypt. The guide was good but took the English and Italian group together, which made for a bit of a crowd in a small space and we had to listen to the dialogue twice. We were not allowed to take photos inside and the tour was really short considering the price.

    Only guided tours (8€) for 40 minutes in the catacombs. The guide was not too talkative but if you ask questions she's really well prepared. Totally recommended!

    Even though you have to go on a guided tour, which is pretty brief, and you cannot take photos, this is still a worthwhile visit. The crypt and catavombs are both amaxing. Loved the frescoes in the crypt.

    Only guided tours, every half hour. Our guide spoke Italian and English. She was very strict, but her explanation was detailed and interesting. A good option on a hot day
