This was one of the coolest things we did in Paris. The history is very fascinating. Definitely recommend buying the skip the line tickets (AKA timed entry) or you will be waiting in a long line. When we got there, the non-timed entry line was over 1.. Read more »


Pretty interesting. I’m hugely thankful that I bought onto an English speaking tour to learn some history of this place beyond an audio guide. Our guide was amazing—Guy from City Wonders. There was one small snafu however—upon entering with our group.. Read more »


Such a amazing experience. Incredible that over 6 million Parisians are inside the Catacombs. Cool that you are even further down than the metro and sewers. Definitely purchase skip the line ticket online ahead of time. The non ticketed people wait i.. Read more »

Absolutely amazing. It is a good walking distance, it’s not just one room or hall. The bones are all loosely stacked towards the top and perfectly stacked for a good metre or two high. It was absolutely chilling in some areas as it is not fully lit a.. Read more »


The Catacombs was our first tourist experience during our first ever trip to Europe and Paris, France. It did not disappoint! It is located within a short walking distance of the Paris Metro (Subway). We opted to purchase the Audio Guide in English w.. Read more »


What a great day of exploration in 2019. I wasn’t too keen to begin with, but it’s such a fascinating historical place to actually view with your own eyes. Right under Paris! Unbelievable.
