Explore the haunting Paris Catacombs on our exclusive small group and private tours. You'll get to skip the long entrance line, and tour parts of the Catacombs that are closed to the general public. Your expert guide will share haunting stories of the history of the Catacombs.

Don't delay - space is extremely limited!

Touring the Paris Catacombs on our Skip the Line Tour is a truly unique experience. Our small group tour group sinks deep into the tunnels of Paris and covers over a kilometer of the haunting catacombs littered with human remains.  Explore the disturbing and extraordinary history of the burial grounds while learning the chilling stories and legends of these galleries of skeletons - while skipping the long entrance queue!

The Paris Catacombs were built as limestone quarries, which were mined for the building of some of Paris' most famous buildings and bridges. After the mid 1700s, the quarries were used to deal with Paris' overcrowded cemeteries, and millions of bodies were transferred from the cemeteries to the catacombs.  In order to maximize the storage capacity of the quarries, the exhumed bodies were simply stacked on top of one another in different rooms in the Catacombs creating many miles of human-bone walls. 

Remember, we have extremely limited availability on our Skip the Line Tour, so book your tour today!
