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.

I'm a huge fan of the catacombs. I was happy I went by myself, I do get claustrophobic so when there were too many people in the tunnel it was nice that I got to hang back and left the groups go so I could walk through by myself. It is colder then you think so definitely bring a jacket!

Great experience. We enjoyed learning more about the history of Paris. The exhibit seems to be well maintained and orderly. I was very glad to have booked tickets in advance because they were completely sold out for the day when we arrived. The audio guide was helpful in providing additional information not on the plaques throughout.

The Catacombs were a great place to visit! Very interesting history and fascinating underground structure. The are located next to a metro station and we didn’t have any queues arriving at 5pm with pre-booked tickets. Using the spiral stairs to enter and exit is a bit tiring but well worth it as it’s cooler in the tunnels. The whole visit lasted around 1 hour (including gift shop). Would highly recommend!
