  • It's cool and all, but all of the skeletons have been removed which is why catacombs are cool. So it lost points for that. 
  • Together with these Catacombs it is a must to also visit St Paul's Catacombs and St Paul's Grotto. Very informative and well organized. What history, unbelievably worth visiting. 
  • We arrived at 4:10 p.m. at the caisse, no "Hello" of the share of the hostess, but rather: "ON VA SOON FARM THEN MUST YOU HURRY" the closure scheduled at 5 pm, there are 50 minutes just to the catacombs (given that the Museum we has been denied access to literally view the time! but the price has no decrease.) Succinct explanations to the catacombs which is not located close to the Fund. (no bye no more of course!) Fortunately a waterfront lady who was passing by told us the entry. On-site security guard informs us in turn to be hurry because it will soon be closed. The visit in it even could have been interesting but because we made it on the run we did not have time to enjoy. We go from Catacomb in catacomb but we were closely monitored, too closely by the vigil which closed each grid after our passage. So we cut short the visit. Until the small store memories in the output (obligatory passage) was in the risers to see us leave! case closed, lights off... and he was only 16 h 45! €5 / person for that entry is therefore somewhat abused because we only made half of the tour (not Museum) and we did the rest on the run, stressed by the security guard that closes the catacombs behind us screaming that it's closing! There are other more interesting to do on the island activity.
