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.

This was an educational tour with a combination of good exercise walking down and through the tunnels. The exhibits of skulls n bones were respectfully presented with the audio guide of great help to understand the history and background. Highly recommended

We booked the skip the line ticket with audio guide, even with the skip the line ticket we still had to wait a good 30 minutes. But going in was smooth and it was actually quite good the pace of the audio guide compared to slowly walking around the catacombs. Very cool down there and decent amount of stairs. Would recommend to any first time Paris visitors

Glad I pre booked, I had an early morning slot and the signs were already up to say sold out for the day. One slightly dizzying decent down lots of stairs and I was in a dark, creepy, beautiful and fascinating underground labyrinth of dead people arranged into strangely photogenic patterns. It’s easy to navigate your way around and you can’t get lost, so ignore all the urban legends of tourists vanishing down tunnels never to be seen again! Definitely worth a visit if you like your “dark tourism” or a want to see a completely unique side of Paris. The limited numbers also means there’s plenty of time and space to look around and get your photos without some random person getting in the way of your perfect shot!
