Get ready to experience something different while visiting the city of light. Go deep beneath the bustling streets of Paris and enter an intricate network of tunnels, extending over 300 kilometres. On this skip-the-line tour discover the Parisian Catacombs ─ macabre tunnels which are a truly rare place to visit. Join your expert guide on a guided tour through what is known as the final resting place of over 6 million souls. With skip-the-line tickets, your time is used wisely and we bypass the queue to enter what is known as ''the gateway to hell''. With only 200 visitors being allowed entry it's hard to find a more exclusive experience. Embark on your journey through the extensive network of underground tunnels, and along the way your guide will unravel the fascinating history behind the Paris Catacombs and reveal how it evolved into the resting place for countless souls from the city. During this 1.5-hour tour, you'll have the unique opportunity to explore two particularly eerie sections of the Catacombs that are off-limits to the general public. These areas are so exclusive that a guardian will personally unlock ancient gates, providing you with an unparalleled VIP experience. The Catacombs stand as one of Paris's best-kept secrets, and on your tour, you'll peel back the layers of mystery concealed within their ancient walls.
