  • Having read previous reviews of who had also visited those of Saint Paul and had enjoyed more these, we opted for a visit here. We were not disappointed: a visit to the small museum and then a guided tour (in English) to the catacombs. Interesting, because they are the only ones to have frescoes on the walls.

  • We had little time, this visit of the catacombs can be a good idea to this amazing heritage. The guided tour is done at certain times only, it lasts about half an hour. It is necessary to move, and to be able to bend easily. The bones are apparent in the tombs, can be avoided with young children?
