Explore the subterranean tunnels of the Catacombs (Les Catacombes), one of Paris’ most popular and atmospheric attractions, on a small-group tour limited to just 19 participants. This skip-the-line tour can save you hours of time waiting in line, and you’ll get an enhanced experience of the macabre labyrinth as your guide shares the stories that make the attraction so fascinating.

What to Expect

The tour begins near the Catacombs at a time of your choice. After greeting your guide, you’ll sail past long lines with your skip-the-line pass and descend to macabre tunnels lined with human skeletons.

As you explore the dimly lit labyrinth, your guide reveals historical information crucial to understanding the Catacombs. Discover the reason residents were buried beneath the city and relish the morbid atmosphere of this unusual Paris attraction.

The tour concludes outside of the Catacombs.

I am sure they will still have at least SOME openings as late as 2-3 weeks out - but if you want to have your choice of tour time and day of the week - the sooner the better..
