Es importante reservar con anticipación ya que si quieres comprar ese mismo día será imposible, se acaban las entradas muy rápido.

Really enjoyed the catacombs, I took my 10 year old daughter who enjoyed it (and enjoyed pretending that she didn't like it!.

Skip the line is the way to go. Having an audio guide was very informative. Nice experience.
