Description

Visit the catacombs in Paris for the first time with family or friends. Accompanied by your local tour guide, explore one of the must-see attractions in Paris. The Paris Catacombs are a maze of tunnels and crypts underneath the city streets where Parisians placed the bones of their dead for almost 30 years.

Skip the line with your children or friends for a private tour with a local guide specializing in humorous family tours and have the chance to understand the exceptional history behind the underground catacombs. The Catacombs were developed in the late 18th Century. At that time, Paris cemeteries were overrun with human remains causing serious health issues. The water in the city was contaminated and disease was running rampant.  Something had to be done to save people’s lives. A decision was made to close several cemeteries within the city limits and move the human remains to old quarries. There are now the remains of more than 6 million people underground. This visit is a fantastic experience and an opportunity to see what the underground of Paris is like.
