Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Did a great job of showing us around the church and the grounds and giving amazing background information leading up to the catacombs. Once in the catacombs it’s not too much to see. The 10-15minutes is plenty. I wish it was darker to get a “real” experience but they had to keep back door open for air flow and circulation. I would def recommend to those who love learning the history of the church and the local Area.

$37 per ticket is a rip off… There’s nothing interesting to see, just a small cemetery and the basement of the church. The “catacombs” have been painted in white so you can’t even appreciate the original walls or anything. Don’t waste your time and money!

This was a really informative tour with some brilliant commmentary on the history of the basilica. The catacombs is quite eerie and we have never seen anything like it. Good trip, great guide and well worth a visit.
