Expert review of St Paul's Catacombs
With over 2000 square metres of underground Roman tombs cut into solid rock, this is a labyrinth to delightfully spook adventurous kids as well as fascinate interested adults. There are several different kinds of tombs, as well as round tables surrounded by benches - all cut from solid rock. Malta is the only place where these tables - for the funerary meal - are found underground. I must admit that, although the Romans undoubtedly used lots of sweet smelling oils on their dead, I wouldn’t have fancied eating down here!
Adults cost 5 euros, over-60s and children aged 12-17 are 3.50 euros, and children aged 6-11 are 2.50 euros. Children under-6 are free.
