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.

Very interesting, different and cool on a hot summer day. I didn't see any guided tours available at the time which probably had more info. But the audio tour was fine and there were some information placards areas along the way. Not a long tour so good to fit in if you have a lot on your itinerary.

I booked the tickets online and showed the ticket on my phone at the door. Perfectly seamless interaction. We did see several people turned away because they didn’t preorder and with the restrictions they were sold out at the time. They also checked our Covid vaccine card which was also no issue at all. I went with my husband and 1 year old daughter. We used a backpack for her to make it easier for us. We went without a guide, but were able to use the audio one provided. This was definitely something that was on my “Paris List” and I’m really happy it did not disappoint. What a unique experience.

Amazing! The queue for entry looks intimidating but moves so fast, as it's set up by booked time. This was soooo easy and smooth to get in. The walk took just 1.5 hours and was fascination to listen to the audio guide. The gift store is very unique (for catacombs!) and we came out with a few had to have items.
