Paris Catacombs (Catacombes de Paris)

1 Avenue du Colonel Henri Roi-Tanguy, Paris, Ile-de-France, 75014

The Basics

A Catacombs tour takes you 135 feet (20 meters) below ground to explore this subterranean world of skeletal remains. You’ll cover just under one mile (1.5 km), which takes about 45 minutes. The Catacombs of Paris aren’t usually part of standard city tours, so they’re often experienced on a standalone tour. Book a skip-the-line ticket to bypass the queue, or make your sightseeing even easier by selecting combo admission to both the Catacombs and the Eiffel Tower.

Leo was an excellent guide for our tour. Seeing the extra passages was definitely worth it. The only issue was we had a large group and no headsets so we could t always hear him well.

Skip-the-Line Paris Catacombs Special Access Tour
This was a highlight if our trip to Paris. We did skip a large line and the tours for the day were sold out so we were lucky. Leo was an excellent guide, sharing so much knowledge and information about the catacombs. We were blown away with this incredible underground cavern. It’s a must if you go!

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Buy a ticket in advance to avoid waiting in a long line; visitors are limited to 200 at a time.

  • You may want to bring a layer, as the temperature is 57° F (14° C) in the Catacombs.

  • There is no cloakroom, so bring only what you want to carry with you.

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes—you’ll go down 130 steps and up 83 steps to return to street level.

  • The Catacombs tour is not for everyone—you will be underground and see human bones, so it's not recommended for those with sensitive disposition or young children. And unfortunately, the site is not accessible for those with limited mobility or recommended for those with heart or respiratory problems.

Other Things to Do in the 14th Arrondissement

This section of Paris is not the city’s most visited, as it’s away from the Seine near the southern edge of the city limits. If you’re making the trip to visit the Catacombs, take advantage of being in the 14th to check out other attractions such as the 56th-floor observation deck of Tour Montparnasse or Montparnasse Cemetery, where writers and intellectuals such as Charles Baudelaire, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Simone de Beauvoir are buried.
