Very good activity, impressive, well explained. Remember to take headphones because the phone in your ear the whole visit is long.

A special experience. Recommended to everyone. With surprising insights. Further background information in the audio guide would be desirable. However, the QR code should also be sent as an email in addition to being stored in the FilesApp.

A place steeped in history. I've been wanting to do it for so long... Very easy to book, and the audiovisual guide was very clear. The only downside is that the numbers for the audiovisual guide should be a little more visible.

We had a great time in Paris, the city of wonders, and the visit to the catacomb was a unique experience - a spiritual meditation in the empire of the dead!

Very moving and overwhelmingly powerful place. The ticketing process was easy and fast and we were allowed to take our time to absorb the experience.

On the day of your experience, take your mobile voucher to the entrance at the Catacombs, scan your ticket and gain entrance to the Catacombs. Once you gain entry, venture 20 meters (65 feet) underground, into one of the city’s most enticing attractions.

After descending 130 steps, you’ll land on a gravel pathway. From here, allow your audio guide to lead you through a one-way, 2km stretch of the mysterious ossuary. Explore the ancient past of Paris as you make your way along a maze of walls lined with skulls and bones. Learn all about how the Catacombs came to be and discover the role they’ve played on the city’s past and present. Hear urban legends, ghost stories, and tales about secret Cataphile parties. At the end of your tour, climb up 83 steps and make your way out of the dark, back to The City of Lights.
