If you have issues with confined spaces, I would NOT recommend this tour--you are down in the catacombs for the full three hours. Also, take into account that the meeting point is a bit far out from the center, so be prepared to travel a...More

which was filled with a great deal of information. It was poignant to see the flowers and respect that was put there of the people still living in the area. I would like to go back. It is something my sons must see.
