Full description
Discover a world beneath the streets of Paris and see tunnels and rooms decorated with the human bones and skulls of around 6 million Parisians. The Paris Catacombs were originally a quarry with hundreds of kilometers of tunnels burrowed beneath the streets of Paris. When the cemeteries of Paris became overfilled, the city started moving the dead into the Catacombs.  Avoid lengthy lines and the hassle of ticket counters – simply show your voucher, start your self-guided tour and explore the “City of Lights” at your own pace.

I enjoyed the tour of the catacombs. The audio tour was pretty crucial in understanding how the catacombs were developed and why. I found it fascinating. You’ll want to try and keep the pace with the audio segments. Also note that if you are heavy or out of shape, the stairs to come back up will not be fun to say the least. The catacombs are below the metro and below the sewer system. Many larger people came out breathing very heavily.

It was a nice tour. Neat to see and you can go at your own pace. You still have to wait in line though. It is a shorter line. We had a hard time figuring our where the line started. Bring headphones they dont provide them, and it's hard to hear without them.

The tour starts from the tour operators office which was a short distance to the tower, our guide was a young French lady who took us to the security check in at the tower entrance which was very quick, we took the lifts to all floors, all the time getting information from our guide, I think the tour lasted about 1 hour but we could stay for as long as we wanted, the weather was not the best at the start of the tour but the sun came out at the top for some great views, dress for the best and worst of weather as it can be cold and very wet due to being exposed, but we enjoyed our tour very much.
