catacombs Paris or Rome
Both of my sons find the idea of visiting some catacombs very appealing. We are travelling to France and Italy in Sep/Oct and I was wondering where would be the best place to do this? Outside Paris or Rome? Does anyone have a preference? Are they worth seeing? thanks

I visited one in Rome (San Sebastiano). I found it interesting but your sons won't see any skeletons or bodies lying in state! I don't know how old your kids are but they may be more interested in this -

We've been to the one in Paris, but not the one in Rome so i can't really compare. The one in Paris was pretty interesting and easy to get to.
