There is a lot of construction going on all around here making this venue very difficult to find currently. Still, this is a very interesting thing to see. It will take only 30 minutes or less, but will be well worth the effort, money and...More

Went in with the Omnia card so it was free (would recommend as I wouldn't pay to enter due to the size of the place, it is very small). Me and my friend did not pay the extra to use the tablets which I feel...More

For those with an interest in biblical history or who find visiting sites associated with biblical events, these few rooms are well worth adding to the itinerary. There is fairly solid evidence that Paul the apostle was imprisoned at this site just prior to his...More

The price of admission to see Mamertine Prison is €10. The only form of payment acceptable is by card, no cash. Considering the fact that the prison consists of a small upper chamber and a smaller lower chamber (where the inmates were kept while waiting...More

Two of the most significant figures in the Bible, the apostles Paul and Peter, were imprisoned at this site. It really brings to life the significance of the times as early Christianity clashed with Rome. Pro Tip: the site is not open too late so...More
