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.

We were able to go straight in. The audio guide is free with any ticket so that shouldn't be a selling point. The main thing was that online tickets weren't available but we were able to get tickets through this company. The Catacombs are very unusual and interesting but you'll be bored before the end and ready to move on to the next adventure you have lined up. About 35-45 mins long.

We took the metro to the catacombs and had our tickets printed out and ready. We were able to get right in and collect the audio device which had pictures and also the information typed should you not be able to hear it or follow along with everything they said. The catacombs have numbers on the walls to ensure you move on and hit play for the next selection at the proper time. It was nice not to have to wait. There is no tour guide, it is at your pace with the audio. One way in and then back up the winding staircase. If you are tall (we are all under 5'5"), have bad knees or breathing issues, or have a fear of tight spaces the low ceilings, dusty dirt floors, and the tight spiral staircase may be an issue for you. Otherwise, it was really interesting and my kids thought it was one of the best things we did in Paris (ages 12 & 15). It was a quick tour too.

Very interesting experience! Didn’t need to pay extra for skip the line - it wasn’t that crowded for us at all. The audio guide is a must-have. There were ~15 features to listen to, between 1-2.5 min long each. It is quite a labyrinth in there! Walking up and down the spiral staircase (start & finish) made me a bit uneasy but after that it was enclosed but not claustrophobic. If you’re very tall you will have to hunch though! It was a somber experience for me but my family was more ‘excited’ to see everything! Very educational. A neat 1-hour experience if you’re in Paris. Afterward I’d recommend heading to Jardin du Luxembourg (about a mile walk).
