We visited the catacombs on a chilly windy day on Milos. The walk up from the road to Klima was quite a hike but a much better experience than parking in the parking lot adjacent. These catacombs date back to the 1st century AD. A guide gave us a mini tour with a detailed explanation of the history We found... More

Fun walking tour of the catacombs, where we were able to see three different sites that had dozens of two moons where the Catholics set up a temple in the middle of the catacombs for prayer.

These are first century Christian catacombs. The tour is short - 15 minutes - but it is interesting and worth seeing. Don't forget to also go up the road to see the Ancient Roman amphitheatre, which is also worth seeing as it is is excellently preserved and restored. This is the area, apparently, where the Venus de Milo was found.

There was nothing really special about the catacombs...if you were expecting to see something similar to the ones in Paris or Peru, then this is not it!! Also the admission increased to 4 euros....it takes literally about 10 mins to see the whole place (including semi guided tour).

I was glad we came here because otherwise I'm not sure we would have gone to the Ancient Roman Theatre or known how to walk up to Panegia Tourliani at sunset. The catacombs were fine. They aren't really very big and if you've been to other catacombs in France or Italy it's not really comparable. If you are short for... More

Yes very worth seing it of course, a few stairs to reach it but vey ineteresing to see. When i visited it back in 1997 it was a lot smaller, they found more tombs as they closed for a few years to do so

The tour is very short, only about 20 minutes however the catacombs are impressive. The guide did a great job of explaining in Greek and English.

Its not amazing. It won't blow you away or be worth a great many photographs. It is slightly overpriced given how little there is to see and the brevity of the tour. However, it is definitely something to put on your to-do list when in Milos given the limited variety of things to do on the island that do not... More
