Know Before You Go

  • Perfect for children: there are a few spots with animals that you can touch!
  • Guided tours can be tailor-made upon request, also with the final visit into the catacombs
  • The e-bike is super comfortable but heavier than normal to push: make sure to have the ability to handle it also while pedaling!
  • Those who prefer not to cycle can purchase a golf-cart tour to do a parallel tour or get tips to walk a part of it.
