Under the Paris of today lies another city that few have experienced. Follow your guide on this 2-hour tour as you embark on a unique and mysterious quest through this city of the dead, unearthing all of the deep secrets that lay hidden in the underbelly of Paris. Bypass the crowds as you enjoy skip-the-line access, and let a passionate local guide lead the way on your dark adventure. Head down into this endless network of underground stone quarries that house the Catacombs, a macabre installation of carefully stacked bones, and the secrets of the Paris of old. The Catacombs is home to the remains of several legendary figures in French history, including the Man in the Iron Mask and guillotine victims such as the infamous revolutionary Robespierre. Fascinating sculptures left behind by quarryman Décure will surprise and delight as you work your way through this subterranean maze in search of its hidden details.
Meet your guide just in front of the glass doors of the Catacombs entrance, on the sidewalk. There is no need to enter the line. The exact address is 3/5 avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy. The nearest metro station is "Denfert-Rochereau”. Your guide will be wearing a special badge with the Localers logo, you can't miss it! Please be sure to locate your guide in front of the entrance before entering the Catacombs. Unless you arrive late, do not enter without your guide.open in google maps ->
