Owner description: Descend into this maze of eerie tunnels niched with early Christian tombs hidden beneath the roofless, flower-filled ruins of a Norman church.

This was one of several "catacomb" we toured. Well preserved grounds and informative English speaking guide provided. Plenty of stray cats around if you need one!

This place is interesting, but it could be better.

There are guided tours in the catacombs every so often, and there is a fee for it. The tour guide is quite knowledgeable, but not to be taken out of the comfort zone with too many questions.
You get to see a small part of the catacombs because the rest is not open to public for.
You find out about the different uses they had over the years, why and how they were built and a bit about early Christian imagery.
It is definetely worth an hour or so of your time if you are visiting Siracusa.
