Avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy - Paris

Take a trip underground and discover the hidden side of Paris with a unique guided tour of the Catacombs!

A subterranean labyrinth dating from the 1st century bc, the Catacombs were originally vast ancient quarries. Nowadays, they house a mysterious collection of bones that belong to more than 6 million Parisians whose remains were moved here…

You will start your guided tour with priority access to the site, avoiding the line at the entrance which can often take 2 or 3 hours.

Accompanied by your guide, you will go a 90-minute exploration that covers more than 2 km of tunnels and crypts, and discover all the secrets of this eerie place.

This atypical experience underneath the city of Paris is guaranteed to give you the shivers!
