What You Can Expect

Skip The Line Paris Catacombs Tour

See how Paris solved the problem of overflowing cemeteries in the 18th century on your Catacombs tour

Meet your knowledgeable guide at street level and prepare for a 1.5-hour guided tour of the Paris Catacombs. Head down 130 steps to reach the intricate network of tunnels, and follow your guide through what can be a confusing labyrinth.
Hear stories about how the Paris Catacombs were built as a massive underground cemetery, housing the bones of roughly six million people since the 18th century. Paris' dead were moved en masse from existing cemeteries to the Catacombs from 1786 to 1788. By the early 19th century, the Catacombs had already started to attract tourist attention.
In this tour, you'll have plenty of chances to ask questions of your guide as you walk through the tunnels. It's a unique opportunity to see a side of Paris most people miss.
After 1.5 hours touring the Catacombs, the tour comes to an end back at street level when you climb back up the stairs where you started the tour.

It was great to be able to skip the line to enter the Paris Catacombs. It was especially great to have a very knowledgeable guide to explain what we were seeing over the 2 km walk through the tunnels. We also had access to part of the Catacombs that is not open to the general public.

The tour is worth it. First, you skip the crazy long line. Second, you get way more information, history, and stories about the catacombs then doing it on your own.
