Paris may be known as the City of Light, but the French capital has a darker side that lurks far below the pavement. Extending for almost 300km underground are the Paris Catacombs, containing 6 million corpses from the 18th century. Here layers of skulls and leg bones line the walls and arches, providing morbid decoration for one of Paris’s most fascinating galleries.
Delve into this rarely-seen aspect of French history on one of our intimate Skip the Line Access Tours. Be captivated as you follow your English-speaking guide deep into the heart of the Paris Catacombs and listen to the haunting tales of the souls that rest here. Lives cut short by horrific disease, revolution and the razor edge of a guillotine.
Be careful though, after experiencing the dark underbelly of the city you may never look at Paris in the same light again.
Access to the Paris Catacombs is extremely limited with only 200 people allowed inside the passages at any time so lines can last up to two hours. With our privileged Skip the Line Access however, you can avoid the long wait, spending your precious vacation time exploring the depths of French history instead. And with a maximum group size of just 20 people per day, your guide has the flexibility to tailor your tour to suit your needs, creating a relaxed and memorable experience for all.
