Full description

Avoid the hassle of ticket counters. Simply show your voucher, start your self-guided tour and explore the 'City of Lights' at your own pace with an informative audio guide.

As you discover a world beneath the streets of Paris, 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.

Really fun experience! I love nerding out over local history so this was incredibly interesting for me. The steps down are a little bit steep but nothing crazy. It does get a little bit busy inside sometimes, especially the spots where the audio guide has an entry to listen to, but I took my time with the tour and never felt like it was overcrowded.

Really enjoyable and informative despite the macabre and eerie atmosphere. When we went in the am, they timed the entry such that they're weren't a lot of tourists in the tunnel at the same time. Be prepared for a lot of walking. If you are claustrophobic, I could see how this tour may not be for you.

I am a solo traveller and used the audio tour. I arrived as requested a little earlier than my designated time so there was a ten minute wait in the queue outside. However they did efficiently let you in at the correct time. I went in November so if you’re going in the winter wrap up warm. Audio was informative and gave me the freedom to go at my own pace. Really interesting part of Paris history and feels like you can imagine what happened when you’re in the tunnels. Very eerie as you walk through and hear about what happened and see the remains. Definitely worth a visit if you like history and you’re not easily spooked!
