They send us away to another city 15km away with 2 buses just to buy tickets! The receptionist was rude and impolite. Not recommended

Last minute departures shouldn’t expect tickets to be available. We went there first week of September and were kindly told no entrance could be booked before... mid November! Too bad since this visit seemed excellent.

The ticket is quite salty but definitely you must visit the spectacular site . Book tickets in advance as it is difficult to find. That also will reduce the cost as you can find then in a better price .

The hypogeum was definitely worth a visit, however it would be a lot more enjoyable if the guides were more informative and more interactive with the tour group.

Wow! This place is amazing. Hard to imagine that this place was inhabited 5000 years ago. A must visit while in Malta.
