  • but the cost of the ticket is very high. It also includes the Museum and the catacombs. The latter are summed up in a basement with tombs in the walls....

  • It deserves a visit at least for the catacombs and the dungeons, but also the interior of the church is to be visited with its Ori and its Baroque inlays. Beautiful the façade and the museum inside.
