  • It was a visit we had planned because we had read about the catacombs and had given us very curious. It is a very interesting place and catches my attention that is relegated and even excluded from many travel guides. It is an experience not to be missed. It is a visit that can be left for the end of the evening because it closes later, 20:30, dejan enter until 19:30, so it is better to seize the day visiting museums and sites that have more limited hours. That we decided to do by what day we arrived about 17:30. When we arrived there was a queue as 60 people so we are patiently waiting. There is almost always a tail and slowly progresses because they leave to enter in small groups of 5 or 6 people every so many minutes since they are many stairs and narrow corridors. We had to wait about an hour but it was worth it. The entries are removed there same. who decides to visit the catacombs must take into account that must be lowered many steps they are underground tunnels and there once inside the tunnels to a distance of 1500 meters. There is no accessibility for people who use wheelchairs. wear comfortable shoes and you can specify shelter in tunnels feels fresh. It's awesome to know that you're walking under the city of Paris and see the walls covered with the skeletons. When you end the route you end up in a souvenir shop obviously. The prices of the items are high but there are some cute items and that you're only there. To keep in mind for you: the end of the tour is hundreds of meters from the entry point so that if you want to go to the metro station which is opposite the entrance you have to walk.

  • History, science and research, all gathered in the catacombs. It is less suffocating than it appears on the website although I do not recommend it for claustrophobic or very impressionable people. Of course that leave footprint.

  • So impressive to see so many bones and skulls of millions of people are piled up and sorted in a 52 km long corridors under Paris. Really a must. It is highly recommended to reserve tickets via the site otherwise you stand quite long in line.
