I would like to visit similar places but this disapointed me. It's pile of stones only. You don't see anything interesting here. I can compare this place with other archeological sites that I've seen before in Carcasson, Rome, Tunis, Cambodia, Myanmar, Egypt and other similar...More

A well set out and interesting exhibition. The signs and movies and audio guides take you through the evolution of the cathedral over the last 2000 years. The mosaics of the bishops reception were the highlight for me.

As you can hear the choir singing above through the vents (come just after 10am for this extra bonus)! It is remarkable that this was all excavated and revealed 2000+ years of history on this one hill. You wander in a labyrinth of walkways through...More

What a wonderful gem of a space they found below the Cathedral. I have visited several ruins similar to this but I think this was one of the best displays of history. Easy walk through the place and very interesting. Well worth your time.

Great but sometimes hard to follow self-guided tour of the archeological dig underneath the cathedral. Not too expensive and well worth the price if you find this sort of thing interesting.

It is worth taking a walk underneath St.Pierre's Cathedral. Much larger than expected and very interesting.

This self guided tour under the Cathedral was very well done. It is self paced with an audio speaker, with recorded talks, with numbers corresponding to all the displays. It took us about an hour to go through the whole tour. It was only $8...More
