“A very nice sight to visit !”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

A sight you have to visit in Milos. The person who is responsible for the tour inside the catacombs is very professional. Just make sure to visit the place in the morning when the sun is not so strong due to a big number of stairs you need to step down

“Very pretty island”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

Saw the location where the statue Venus was found. The island is very pretty, the museum is very small, but may be worth going in.

“A great stop...in spite of the staff”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We were very excited to see the catacombs in Milos and as the only Christian ones in the whole of Greece, its importance is unquestionable. Walking through the catacombs requires a bit of reflection as it hits you that you are walking through the final resting place of untold early Christians. It takes a bit of a walk to get there that might be tougher for some coming back then arriving but it is worth the effort. The only downside was the woman who guided us through the facility. We had to wait for a pre-requisite of twelve people and then made our way down. The woman to conducted the tour could not have sound more disinterested, spitting out her lines like some people do liturgy - devoid of emotion, conviction and passion.

To be honest, I did not need her rapid fire, dry delivery but I had to remember why I was there and it was not for a more entertaining presentation. The historical significance makes the visit special.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Don't expect any Lara Croft caves. The part of the catacombs that you can visit is limited, bu the they have done a very good job with the preservation/presentation and the few words that you get from the guards (not guides) are quite informative and to the point.

“Worth your visit”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

One of the most important findings of the early christian age. Not as impressive as the Catacombs of Rome but worth your visit. Place only open till 13:45.
