A genuine labyrinth in the heart of underground Paris, the Catacombs were fitted out in the galleries of former quarries. Twenty metres underground, the ossuary houses the remains of approximately six million Parisians, gradually transferred between...more

The wait to get in to the catacombs was about 30 minutes. Not sure if it would be worth it to purchase an advance ticket - depends on your budget.
The history lesson really makes you think. Being from the United States, it’s hard to...More
Well worth the queue we waited for about 45 mins to hour for the 11am entry. Quite a walk down narrow spiral steps over 150 I believe. Definitely get the audio tour guide as lots of information that isnt on the route. Its narrow with...More
I prebooked online for the 1800 time slot. We arrived to no line, and nobody else there so we probably did not need to pre book but after looking at all these reviews I thought it'd be best to.
I noticed that 200 people were...More
Definitely pre pay and take guided tour to see extra rooms. Not scary at all but gives you a great respect and curiosity about 18th century France and an introspection about life and death. Our tour guide, Laura P was awesome and had many stories...More
This place is very spooky and cool all at the same time. The history and story behind the place makes it worth taking the time to stand in line to see this. This place is family friendly and something worth seeing :)
We paid Viator tour company for a tour that provided and English speaking guide and a skip to the front of the line- it was worth the extra money. Others reported waiting two hours and then had an audio headset guide them through. The historian...More
If your budget allows, please, please, please prebook the tickets! We went in the "low" season (if Paris even has a "low" season anymore) and the wait was 3 whole hours in the biting cold!!! We did try to book advanced tickets but they were...More
The tour I scheduled through Viator several months ago got cancelled just a few days before the reservation, which was a huge problem because we’d organized the trip (to some degree) around this activity. No explanation for the cancellation was offered, nor could another acceptable...More
While traveling in August, this was on the list of to-do's for the teens but we could not get a ticket before-hand (definitely get that ahead of time). We waited in line for 2.5hours and then it was an hour long walk through the cascading...More
You can walk up and buy a ticket, but we did the reserved ticket and it is definitely the way to go. We had a reserved time. Only 200 people at a time can be in the catacombs, so if you don't have a reservation...More
Catacombs of St. Callixtus vs San Gennaro (2 Replies)
Which catacomb gives a better experience and why?
March 06, 2016|
St Callixtus are in Rome. You'd have to get an answer from someone who's been to both and it would be entirely subjective as these things are.
rate my itinerary please.. (2 Replies)
so myself and my girlfriend are spending 5 full days in rome and i have done up an itinerary so we get a lot of stuff in. can people read it and let me know if its unrealistic or what? Day 1 (saturday): Go to the Colleseum early and do a tour of that and Palatine Hill. In the afternoon, check out the Forums, Circus Maximus and the pantheon. Day 2 (Sunday): In the morning, go to the trevi fountain. After that, head to the borghese gallery for a tour. Then stay in the park and have a...More

You might want to see the Baths of Caracalla on the same day as the circus maximus as it is just up the street. It will make more sense than making a special trip to see it. After your day at the vatican you can cross the bridge and make your way to the piazza navona and then on to the pantheon. You will have plenty of time each day to add things to your itinerary so you should have a wonderful time. Donna
best public transport to Catacombs of Domotilla (2 Replies)
What is the best public transport solution to get to the Catacombs of Domotilla from around Termini station? I read their website and they suggest taking a bus from Termini station and a few other spots around the city. It appears that there are closer metro stops, like Garbatella or Basilica S Paulo. I know I will have to take a bus for the last leg. But it seems like it would be a much shorter and quicker bus ride from the other two metro stations instead of Termini. Thanks

Bus #714 from Termini (and a little walk) is probably the quicker choice. It is a main bus line so it is quite efficient (for Rome standards). Buses from metro stops have a poorer schedule, and you have to consider time spent going out the metro stop itself.
