How long do I need to put aside to go around the catacombs? Also, I won’t have time to fit in both these catacombs and the nearby St Agatha’s ones – if anyone has seen both, which would you recommend?
Thanks in advance for any replies.
St Paul's are the best ones to visit.
1-2 Hours to look at all of them.
I would say you need at least an hour if not a little bit more. I have only been to st Paul’s so I can’t really answer you second part. But well worth a visit.
You really need to allow at least 1.5 hours to do the visit justice. I have not visited the St Agatha catacombs so cannot comment on that site. I live on the Island of Gozo and if you are visiting Malta but have not previously visited Gozo I can strongly recommend a visit. Also if you are interested in Catacombs there are some Roman ones in the village of Salina, near Qawra, these are free to enter and well worth visiting. They may be small but are truly impressive. Just Google Salina Catacombs for more information. Enjoy your visit to our Islands.
I'd recommend Saint-Agatha: it's short but it's an interesting guided tour (30/40 minutes) including the crypt and it gives you a pretty good idea of what a Maltese catacomb is. There is also a small museum. Saint-Paul is a long visit if you want to enter all the catacombs.
