Descend into the ancient catacombs under Paris to shudder at the skeletons and walls of bones that fill tunnels and alcoves stretching for miles. See where over 6 million citizens were buried under the French capital on this private or small group tour.
What to Expect
Deep under Paris, an ancient burial ground extends for miles. On this private tour, enjoy a unique exploration of the French capital's chilling catacombs.

Originally built as limestone quarries, the Paris catacombs started being used as a burial ground in the mid 1700s. Paris' cemeteries were overcrowded, and millions of bodies were transferred to the catacombs. In order to maximize the storage space under ground, the exhumed bodies were simply stacked on top of one another, creating miles of walls made from human bones.

Your private guide will take you deep into these tunnels under Paris, where you'll learn about the disturbing and extraordinary history of the mass underground tomb. As you explore galleries of skeletons, your guide will tell you chilling stories and legends about the 6 million French citizens whose remains are scattered here.
