The Catacombs - CLOSED!

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by flyin_illini on May 9, 2001

Important note if you were planning on visiting the Catacombs: It is closed for renovations until at least June 2001, perhaps longer. We took the Metro out the Catacombs entrance (along with a couple dozen other tourists), only to be disappointed. The Catacombs was on my 'short list' of things I absolutely didn't want to miss. (Guess I need to go back...)

Before you make the trek out that way, make sure you check with a tourist info center or your hotel concierge to see if the Catacombs are open or not. BTW, there is not much else to see in that area of town.

I've heard that the Catacombs are "highly recommended," so I'll rate it that way. Either way, I "highly recommend" that you find out the status of this site before you make the journey...
