On this 90-minute tour of the Catacombs, you’ll descend into the Parisian underground with your guide and discover the mysterious world that sits beneath the city. Arrive 15 minutes early to ensure your skip-the-line access. Your group will have a maximum of 20 people. The temperature below is typically 14°C/57°F, so make sure to dress accordingly. (Restrooms and coat checks are not available.)
Please note that because some areas underground are narrow and have low ceilings, guests susceptible to claustrophobia or cardiac or respiratory weakness are strongly discouraged to visit the Catacombs. As there are many steps to enter and exit the Catacombs, this activity is not suitable for those in wheelchairs. In addition, children are not advised to participate in this tour.
Outside the entrance of the Catacombs, your guide will provide you with a headset and a brief explanation of the history of the Catacombs. Then, make your way down 137 steps. Throughout the tour, you will have the opportunity to take pictures and ask questions as your guide shares insight into the Catacombs' origins, their transition into a modern cemetery, and their appeal today. At the exit, climb 87 steps to emerge onto the streets of Paris.
