Summary

Did you know that a parallel world exists deep beneath the heart of Paris? We're not talking about the metro tunnels crisscrossing below, or the intricate networks of the sewer system. No we’re talking skeletons—6 million of them to be exact!

The Catacombs encapsulate all that is mysterious and beguiling about Paris, offering a unique underground adventure unmatched by any other city. But our excursion is so much more than bones—in fact some of the city’s deepest darkest secrets lay within those limestone tunnels. We offer rare VIP access so you’ll see more unexpected objects and thought-provoking curiosities than the normal visitor. This is a chance to explore underground Paris to the fullest.

A trip through the Catacombs is a journey through time that revisits some of the most turbulent and tumultuous periods in Paris history. Where did the bones come from? Why were they put there? And more importantly—who arranged them in such a bizarre way? You’ll discover the stories and secrets of this network of tunnels that extend some 20m beneath the hustle and bustle of modern Paris. To sweeten the deal we’ve also arranged skip-the-line access so you can avoid what is typically several hours of standing in line.

Don’t wander aimlessly like the others, wondering what you’re looking at. A Localers tour means you get access to dark corners that are closed to the general public. Dig deeper with us into a world of darkness that resides quietly beneath the City of Light. You’ll never look at Paris the same way again!
