This place is haunted - of course, there are no bodies remaining in these catacombs, but it's easy to imagine what it was like in the days when it was used. You can wander all over the place without interference from guards. There are no "off-limit" places and it offers an incredible glimpse of the past. I'm not sure why Alexandria doesn't make this place into a major tourist attraction with fancy signs and guided tours but I really love it the way it is. An uncommon discovery.
