One might argue that I have an unhealthy obsession with death, but this place exceeded my expectations, and I have visited a few bone chapels in other countries. The history is fascinating (the place was shut down by the Catholic Church after the locals took to "adopting" the remains) and the ambiance is eerie but touching. When we went there was virtually no one there, and there was no admission fee, although I believe there is usually a modest charge.
Tip: the cemetery is probably best visited after a tour of the catacombs. Ask your tour guide how to get to the cemetery, and it shouldn't be as confusing as others have described. Your walk will take you through the La Sanita district, which is very interesting in its own right.
