Skip the Line: Catacombs of Paris Small-Group Walking Tour

Skip the Line: Catacombs of Paris Small Group Walking Tour

The Paris catacombs consist of an extensive underground network of tunnels originally dug as limestone quarries during the building of some of the city’s famous monuments. Beginning in the late 18th century, remains from Paris’ overcrowded cemeteries were exhumed and transported here for storage, with thousands of bones neatly arranged into piles along the walls.
Delve into this eerie underworld with an exclusive small-group tour. Lines to enter the catacombs often exceed 2 hours, but you’ll head to the front of the queue with your knowledgeable guide. A group maximum of 20 people provides a more personalized experience.
Wander through the dimly lit labyrinth that winds beneath the city’s famous streets. Marvel at the stacks of human skeletons that greet you at every turn while your guide illuminates the history of this soul-stirring ‘empire of death.’

I and #39;d heard lots of stories of long queues and then missing out on entry. So I went with the tour. skipping the line was great but also the guide brought it alive for me and my children, loads of interesting facts and stories and we went thru some tunnels that closed to the general public. Well worth iti

John did an incredible job at making the catacomb tour come to life! Ha Ha!! Seriously without the stories and knowing what and how all that happened, you would have missed so very much. And then there was the LOOOOONG line that we did not have to stand in! The line wrapped around the building and we just went straight to the door. Wonderful tour. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
