paris catacombsWhat is so special about Paris Catacombs? When you go there, you go through unique experience by seeing the bones of 6 million Parisian. You also take part to a visit during which you can comprehend the importance of Paris Catacombs in Middle Ages. Plus, you will finally get answers to questions like How were they built? How the other people found them?

Visiting Paris Catacombs means complete your impression of the city, far from the sparkling light. The catacombs of Paris are the place to be for those people who want to know the past of the city by experiencing what is still left. This place is the one where lots of Parisians have been buried. It is very exciting have a direct contact with such an history. Joining a tour with a guide is also the best to fully understand why these places are so important.

The guide is available in English, Spanish, German and French. By buying this ticket, you will have a skip-the-line entrance pass and an audio guide. Obviously it comprehends also the entry fee.

Before booking this ticket to the catacombs, evaluate if this is what you are looking for. If you go there, you will have to climb down and back about 130 steps and have a long walk. Plus, consider that there are no elevators, no bathrooms and no lockers. I think it is the perfect experience for who is traveling alone or in couple. I don’t think it also suits children too or people with a heart condition.
