Skip-the-Line: Paris Catacombs guided Tour with VIP Access

by City Wonders Duration 2h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is C$134

Embark on a journey to discover the darker side of the City of Light on a tour of the Parisian Catacombs. A burial ground for millions, the Catacombs' subterranean tunnels are still lined with human skulls and bones. This eerie underground labyrinth of tombs casts the city in a new light.

Although best known for its stunning landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and the Louvre, there exists a whole other city underground – an extensive labyrinth that extends nearly 186 miles (300 km). These ancient limestone quarries date back to 2 BC, but became a mass burial site in the 18th century.

Skip the lines at the entrance and descend deep underground to explore half a mile (1 km) of these fascinating burial chambers. Your guide gives you insights into the fascinating history behind this gallery of skeletons and the haunting stories that go with them. After seeing this side of Paris, it’s difficult to look at the city in the same light again.

Die Stadtführerin war eine US Amerikanerin und unglaublich lustig. Ohne sie wäre es längst nicht so interessant gewesen. Es war eine tolle Erfahrung!!!!

Such a great tour with a great tour guide. John is very smart and extremely knowledgeable about France. This was one of the best tours and tour guides I’ve ever had.

Amazing tour! Our tour guide, Laura, was the best. She was so knowledgeable and nice. This tour was definitely worth the extra money to see the "VIP" rooms.
