Discover a hidden world beneath your feet in the Paris Catacombs, a unique and historic attraction in that you won’t want to miss!


Ready to discover Paris’ dark side?  After this unique experience, you’ll never see the city the same way again!

As you are lead on a 2 km trail through the heart of this subterranean labyrinth, which  extends through around 300 km of tunnels in total, you will discover the skulls and bones of over 6 million Parisians, brought to the Catacombs from their original cemeteries over 200 years ago.

You will visit some of the Catacombs’ most mysterious and impressive features, such as a World War II era bomb shelter, poems carved into plaques on the walls, and areas normally forbidden to the public.

In an intimate tour group, you will be lead around unusual objects and rooms inaccessible to other visitors, such as the Sacellum Crypt, as your tour guide recounts exciting stories of each area, like exhibits in a museum.

Immerse yourself in this strange and exciting side of Paris, 20 m beneath the hustle and bustle of the main city, and be prepared to discover much more than just bones.
