What an amazing experience! Being in the same room where the Apostle Paul was chained was absolutely a humbling experience.

10 Euro to see two rooms, a cell and some artefacts. Don’t bother. Interactive iPad tool had issues also.

This was a fascinating little museum and archaeology site. The video reconstructions of the site were mesmerizing and the exhibits were interesting. I was not interested in its biblical history, but I enjoyed it very much from an archaeological perspective. I also got the combination...More

Yes, it's small and doesn't take much time to go through; but, it is a historical piece of Christianity. To think that you can be in the small Roman Prison cell that, history tells us, Peter and Paul were held, is very special. The early...More

It's really difficult to imagine the Apostle Paul sitting in "prison" writing letters to his churches but this is the actual place. The prison cell is not what you think but actually, a small room carved out of rock. It was accessed by drop-down stairs...More

As a follower of Christ, visiting this prison which is said to be where both Peter and Paul were incarcerated was a special experience. It is small, but there are interesting artifacts and to go down into the cell space is very touching.
