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!

I dragged my sisters on this tour and was very pleased when they said it was one of the best things we did during our week in Paris. It would not have been as awesome without our great guide who explained what we were seeing, answered all questions, and was protective and charming throughout the tour.
