It's quite interesting to go underground to see the ancient burial grounds. There are no bones to see just the empty graves. There are some interesting wall paintings. The small chapel underground is quite lovely. If you are claustrophobic, this may be troubling. I am...More

Friendly tour guide rushed us through approximately 400 feet of tunnels for €30 per person. No bones, no skeletons, nothing like you'd expect. Fun fact- you can catch a train to Pisa from Termini for €40, much less of a rip off, try do that...More

Not what I expected, and all worth it. Newer site with unopened graves. Tour was very detailed and guide was extremely knowledgable.

The guide was very detailed and the staff polite and helpful. The story behind is impressive though you shouldn’t expect to find as impressive sight: empty underground holes. However it’s worth visiting.

There was no advice online stating its closed from 24 Jan to 21 Feb 2018. Went all the way there to see all 3 catacombs all closed. Such a disappointment.
