Description

Discover the haunting remains of more than 6 million French citizens in the Catacombs of Paris, under the city streets. During this private, 90 minute tour, skip the long lines for entry and visit parts for the Catacombs that are closed to the general public. Your guide will share stories about the Catacombs along the way. You'll get to skip the line entry lines, and not worry about obtaining your entry tickets, as your guide will do that for you.

Enjoy this 90 minute guided tour through more than a kilometer of tunnels beneath the Paris streets. Meet your guide at 2 PM at your Paris hotel and take public transportation (at your own expense) to the Catacombs, or meet your guide at the entrance to the Catacombs. 

Skip the lines upon arrival and follow your guide as you learn the often disturbing history behind the Catacombs. Hear about why the former limestone quarries, mined to build some of the city's most famous buildings, came to be used as the final resting place for many Parisians. 

Begin the tour descending a narrow spiral staircase nearly 200 steps below the streets, where you will have a brief introduction before you head through the cool corridors lines with skulls and bones. Discover how millions of bodies were exhumed from Paris' overcrowded cemeteries in the 1700s, and then stacked one on top of the other deep underneath the streets of Paris. 

Many of the rooms are now closed to the general public, like the Décures sculptures, the Sacellum Crypt and and Gilbert's tomb. However, with this private tour you will have full access to the site. The tour will end at approximately 4:30 PM. A perfect Paris afternoon spent in the Paris Catacombs.
