What to expect

Enjoy a 2.5-hour private tour of the Catacombs of Paris with skip-the-line tickets. Explore the disturbing and extraordinary history of the burial grounds while learning the chilling stories and legends of these galleries of skeletons.

The Paris Catacombs were built as limestone quarries, which were mined for the building of some of Paris' most famous buildings and bridges. After the mid 1700s, the quarries were used to deal with Paris' overcrowded cemeteries, and millions of bodies were transferred from the cemeteries to the catacombs. In order to maximize the storage capacity of the quarries, the exhumed bodies were simply stacked on top of one another in different rooms in the Catacombs creating many miles of human-bone walls.

Your expert Catacombs guide will lead your private group on a true journey through the tombs. Your guide is a local Catacombs expert that is absolutey passionate about sharing the riveting tales about the Catacombs with our guests.
