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.

    It was an amazing experience, very interesting tour. I arrived 5 minutes late due to issues with my transport but it was not a busy day so they let me in anyway but I had to buy an audio guide again for 5 euros so it wasn’t very expensive. The climb back up all those stairs was a pain but just pace yourself and you’ll be fine. There is a cute gift shop at the exit too. I plan to come back again once it’s open after lockdown to have another stroll through. For anyone who plans to visit I suggest bring a sweater it’s a little chilly down there, Bring some water too you’ll want some after the exercise from climbing all those stairs and just enjoy yourself. You won’t get lost it’s well labeled. But do arrive early even with priority tickets, unexpected things can happen and they will turn you away on a busier day.

    I enjoyed the tour of the catacombs. The audio tour was pretty crucial in understanding how the catacombs were developed and why. I found it fascinating. You’ll want to try and keep the pace with the audio segments. Also note that if you are heavy or out of shape, the stairs to come back up will not be fun to say the least. The catacombs are below the metro and below the sewer system. Many larger people came out breathing very heavily.

    It was a nice tour. Neat to see and you can go at your own pace. You still have to wait in line though. It is a shorter line. We had a hard time figuring our where the line started. Bring headphones they dont provide them, and it's hard to hear without them.
