A short walk down a hill but the views whilst on route are excellent only 4 euros entrance fee with a guardian although he said he was not a guide he was very informative. One of the oldest known Christian burial grounds. The vist underground takes about 10 to 15 minutes but is worth the walk down the hill

I visited the catacombs in June 2020. I believe it s interesting. Of course the place is very small, just about 100 tombs,but it s 2000 years old. The lady who guided us was very nice, simple, she gave us a lot of informations and answered to any questions we had.If you are in Plaka , Trypiti or Triovassalos it s worth a visit , cause it s nearby. If you are far , you can skip it. They are very strict about the corona virus, masks are compulsory and only 2 visitors are going inside every time

This is one of Milos's only historical sites. Its well organized and laid out well. There was about a 30 minute wait when we went due to the fact that the catacombs are small and only about 10 people fit at a time. It cost about 3 EUR and there is a guide who speaks in Greek or an audio tour in English. Only takes about 15 minutes to see it.

5 minute visit, 4 Euro per person. Complete waste of time
90% of the area is not accessible due to collapse or maintenance. Staff is not friendly and do do warn visitors, just take you money and then disappoint. Real tourist trap.

Not worth it. 6 Euros for a 10 minute tour by security. It's about 100 feet of cave with nothing in it. Only 1 spot had little signs of paint decoration. Other places on island cost less to visit with more time to wander. The bus stop is not near the catacombs. You have a long walk down the mountain, past a nice overlook and amphitheater (which are free and better) to get to a very long stairway to the catacombs. There are taxi call signs along the road for those who feel they can't make it back up to the bus stop (call for pick up). Bus is about 1.80 Euro each way from pier, which is the main bus hub for the island. Btw I found the bus system has 5 routes, not 2 which is posted on their website of milos bus. The claim to this place is that it's one of the earliest Christian resting sites.

Only a small section of the catacombs is open to tour groups, so if you go along expecting an Indiana Jones experience this might fall short, but we found it really interesting. The location overlooking Klima is very picturesque, and the catacombs are really well-preserved, although still showing signs of vandalism from when they were initially rediscovered.

The tour is short but our guide was really knowledgeable, and we went away wanting to learn more. This possibly isn't worth going miles out of your way for, but makes a nice day out if combined with a few hours in Klima or Tripiti - or both.

It is worth visiting the monument. However, there is material to guide you. The 'guides' are not trained or archaeologists. The monument itself is fairly small, but worth it in my humble opinion. If you go there, make sure you have enough water (there's no facility there OR nearby to buy any). There is no toilet either. You have to pay a 4 euro admission fee, which it too much considering how poorly organised the site is. The staff is rude and ignorant. It's embarrassing to remember. You'd better do your homework so that you understand what you see.

When on holiday, many people neglect to scratch bellow the surface (excuse the pun). These catacombs are impressive, and are only going to take thirty minutes of your day to visit. Well worth the time.

Unfortunately we had the terrible idea to go there first and read the reviews on tripadvisor after. On a warm afternoon of very low season we decided to visit the Catacombs as we like to see as much there is to see everywhere we go on holiday. The price is now 4€ per person; as we got there there was no-one. We paid and were ask to wait a few minutes for the "keeper" ?? After waiting under the sun for a while a smileless lady took us inside, told us not to touch anything, explained us that most of the things we saw on the wall were act of vandalism and gave us a bit of history (that was very kind of her as she clearly explained us she was NOT a guide only a "keeper"). Ten minutes later we were out and about feeling sorry for ourselves. If we had to pay a Symbolic € we would have been happy to do so but 4€ really felt like we were paying someone salary.

The catacombs do not have good interpretation although the staff work at it. Its interesting and represents an important part of early Christianity. Its worth a look.
