  • Pretty Church. If you want to visit it, as well as the catacombs, it will be €6. I understand that it may be paid to renovate this heritage which so many need.

  • Catacombs are interesting, Unable to get into church without paying to get in. Claimed it is a museum, so they can charge! Able to visit the newer part of the church above the catacombs.  more »
