Head directly to the Skip the Line Entrance to gain entry into a mysterious network of tunnels, 20 meters below the streets of Paris. These tickets give you an access to bypass the 3-5 hour long ticket lines and directly join much shorter skip the line queues.

Why You Shouldn't Miss This

Beneath the bustling streets of Paris lies a subterranean world holding the remains of over six million Parisians. Explore 2 kms of underground tunnels and travel back to 18th century Paris. The Catacombs of Paris are a grim yet beautiful reminder of the city’s important history.

As a way to combat overflowing cemeteries during the Middle Ages, the capitol decided to transform its mines into an underground burial site. Gradually, the city relocated millions of dead bodies to a complex series of interconnected tunnels and rooms, creating a massive 300km stretch of ossuary that has shaped the Paris we know today.

From the role the Catacombs played in the French Revolution and Hitler’s regime, to the impact this network of underground tunnels continues to have on the city, explore over 2,000 years of Parisian history in this incredible tour. Since the day they were created, the mysterious ossuaries aroused curiosity, and they continue to do so today.
