What You Can Expect
Descend 130 steps to the subterranean cemetery and begin exploring the labyrinth of passageways, filled with curious nooks and crannies. Hear about the history of the catacombs from your knowledgeable guide — once stone mines, the network of tunnels were developed into a vast burial tomb in the 18th century after Paris' cemeteries became overcrowded. Today they are home to the remains of approximately six million people.
Wander along winding tunnels lined floor-to-roof with the skulls and bones of the dead. Listen as your guide relays some of the stories relating to this historic burial ground, and soak up the catacombs’ otherworldly atmosphere.
After 1.5 hours exploring the Catacombs of Paris, ascend back to street level to conclude your tour.
Awesome tour and guide. The guide was very informative and made the experience wonderful. The catacombs are a must see in Paris and this skip the line private tour made our experience unforgettable!
We found the Catacombs really fascinating with Victoria. She was very thorough .If our grandson hadn't asked about the catacombs in Paris, we would never have known about them. The stairs would be challenging for some.
