Want the FULL Catacombs experience?  Check out our complete guided tour here.
Our licensed guides share local and historical details that bring the Catacombs to life! Don't squander this once in a lifetime opportunity. 

Are there miles of tunnels full of bones underneath your feet in Paris? Do you really wait up to 3 hours in high season to enter the Paris Catacombs? The answer is "yes" to both of the questions above. The Tour Guy has made it simple for those of you who don't want a fully guided tour and would prefer to enter on your own accord. You can purchase just a ticket to skip the line and enter. 

Imagine a city having so little grave space that they needed to create a full underground network of tunnels solely dedicated to burying the dead. Now imagine this “Empire of the Dead” having detailed art installations composed fully of skeletal remains. Home to the remains of more than 6 million bodies, the Paris Catacombs provide the perfect dark and eerie to balance with the beauty of the City of Light.

Skip the Line Paris Catacombs Tickets

This budget-friendly option allows you to simply purchase skip the line tickets to enter the Paris Catacombs and explore the network of underground tunnels on your own. All you have to do is show up at the designated meeting point outlined on your voucher that you will receive after booking and one of our friendly welcome staff will give you your skip the line tickets into the Catacombs. No wait necessary! 

*These tickets are non-refundable. All sales are final, no cancellations. 

Self-guided Paris Catacombs Tour

Your ticket will be emailed to you directly after booking and  you will be free to enter the Paris Catacombs on your own. Once inside, you will be greeted with a sign that will welcome you through the "Gates of Hell." Descend beneath the steps to enter a dark and cool ossuary, lit only by dim lights.

Inside, you’ll be able to explore the macabre structures that make up the Catacombs, consisting purely of skeletal remains. If you're looking to hear all of the exhilarating folklore surrounding the Paris Catacombs, we recommend taking a guided tour instead to get the full experience.

Worth it!

I was travelling to Paris with my family and waiting in a long line with three teenagers isn't ideal. It was definitely worth getting skip the line tickets and the tour guy made it super easy! I wouldn't want to waste my time waiting.

Didn't want to miss the Catacombs again!

The first time I was in Paris I skipped the Catacombs because the line was over a 3 hour wait and we decided against it. I didn't want to let that happen again! I'm glad I found these because I went straight in didn't waste my time waiting in the line. We would definitely recommend! They're easy and save you so much time while you're traveling.
