Owner description: Descend into this maze of eerie tunnels niched with early Christian tombs hidden beneath the roofless, flower-filled ruins of a Norman church.

We had to join a tour, which meant waiting a while, but it was worth it as the catacombs are a labyrinth of underground passages, and the guide was very informative.
We asked advice at the tourist information, and they gave us a discount voucher, which meant that we paid 5 euros each instead of the normal 8 euro entrance fee.
It was well worth the visit.

we allowed an hour for this visit - but it was by small guided group only - took around 5-10 mins. NO photos allowed either - copyright apparently even though there are no skeletons

We enjoyed this visit very much. The catacombs are second best only to the ones in Rome. Could be chilly underground take a jacket or cardigan if you feel the cold. Guided tour only which is understandable as people would get lost. Well informed guide who spoke good English.

Very extensive catacombs and you get a guided tour included. Well worth a visit. Not to be missed and don't be afraid to ask questions.
