Skip the Line: Catacombs of Paris Small-Group Walking Tour
The Paris catacombs were originally limestone quarries, mined for the construction of Paris' most famous buildings and bridges. From the late 1700s the quarries were used to house bodies moved here from the overcrowded cemeteries of Paris. The bones of exhumed bodies were stacked neatly in various rooms creating kilometers of walls composed entirely of human remains.
Access to the catacombs is extremely limited and the long lines can last up to two hours. With privileged Skip the Line access you can avoid the long wait and enjoy a personalized visit with our limited group of just 20 guests per day. Join us and explore Paris as never before on this exclusive Skip the Line tour!

Alberto was a super friendly, really knowledgeable and entertaining guide, and it really was a 'skip the line' tour - we missed 2 hours of waiting as a result of this! English wasn't his first language, but he had such a great grasp on it :
It was great value for money, especially as only at the start and end of the tour/tunnels could any information be found regarding the geology of the place, and there was nothing about the bones or the signs you could find along the way. Highly recommended this tour!!
