Most of the time is indoors, some steps but quite manageable.
If you want something off the beaten path, take this tour.
I would recommend this tour for anyone interested in the history of the church and surrounding areas!

Pretty good, the church was incredible, catacombs were a bit of a let down. Would definetly come back given the chance

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.
Excellent!

Don’t waste your time and money!
Susana_H, May 2022
$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!
Off the beaten path
