What to expect

Explore the mysterious underground world of the Catacombs in Paris on this 1.5-hour guided tour!

You'll meet your guide and head underground to enjoy a narrated tour of the tombs. You'll hear the history behind this labyrinth of tunnels, which contains the bones of more than six million people.

In this tour, you’ll have plenty of chances to ask questions of your guide as you walk through the tunnels, which some are only accessible by guided tour! It’s a unique opportunity to see a side of Paris most people do not have the time or opportunity to see. The tour will finish right back at the street level from the same stairs where you began.
