Summary

What to Expect

On the day of your experience, take your printed voucher to the skip the line entrance at the Catacombs, scan your ticket and gain entrance to the Catacombs. Avoid the hassle of waiting in the regular 1-4 hour long queue and directly join the much shorter skip the line queues. Once you gain entry, venture 20 meters (65 feet) underground, into one of the city’s most enticing attractions.

After descending 130 steps, you’ll land on a gravel pathway. From here, allow your audio guide to lead you through a one-way, 2km stretch of the mysterious ossuary. Explore the ancient past of Paris as you make your way along a maze of walls lined with skulls and bones. Learn all about how the Catacombs came to be and discover the role they’ve played on the city’s past and present. Hear urban legends, ghost stories, and tales about secret Cataphile parties. At the end of your tour, climb up 83 steps and make your way out of the dark, back to The City of Lights.
