Full description
Discover a world beneath the streets of Paris and see tunnels and rooms decorated with the human bones and skulls of around 6 million Parisians.

Avoid lengthy queues and the hassle of ticket counters – simply show your voucher at the newspaper kiosk adjacent to the entrance to collect your ticket. You will be then able to walk straight inside after a security check.

Explore a darker side to the “City of Lights” as you walk through tunnels dug out in the Middle Ages. The Paris Catacombs were originally a quarry with hundreds of kilometers of tunnels burrowed beneath the streets of Paris. When the cemeteries of Paris became overfilled, the city started moving the dead into the Catacombs. To enable you to discover works from the site for yourself, audio guides available in French, English, German and Spanish are provided.
