A truly unique experience at the Paris catacombs

Those who can handle the 130 steps of a spiral staircase, both up and down, will enjoy a truly unique experience. The history & geology of the Paris catacombs are fascinating, & the skeletal constructions are both macabre & poignant. I recommend buying tickets online and in advance because there are none available at the door.


100% worth your time & money!

This is a must-see site if you are in Paris! We did a self-guided tour and spent about an hour and a half at the catacombs. It's chilly and dark, and there are a lot of stairs at the entrance and exit so be aware! Overall, a very good experience that I highly recommend to everyone!
