    Amazing to walk through these, I felt like Indiana Jones

    It is a really good experience but it is frightening

  • Alyssa F.

    So much fun - the line is long and they don't have a bathroom so find one beforehand! This place is not for claustrophobics or ossophobics

    Alyssa Foote · June 12
  • Razan A.

    Don't miss it. It's worth the wait.

    It's a very peculiar place and worth the visit if you are not claustrophobic. Arrive early to avoid lines and be aware that the exit is far from the entrance, don't get lost

    Book a guided group tour (we used Get Your Guide). Great value for money and they even stand in the queue for you while you grab a coffee. Really knowledgable & fun - it adds so much to the experience

  • Alex L.

    Make sure you wear comfortable shoes because it's a long walk.

    Go early to avoid waiting an hour in line. Also, if you act like an idiot and touch the bones, I will smack you.

  • Robert A.

    Arrive early or late to avoid the worst lines. It's narrow not very tall passages and a decent walk. Be prepared

    Robert Accettura · January 10
  • Jonathan S.

    Skip the very long entry line by paying €6 more for a guided tour (on top of the €10 admission). Check website for tour times, show up 15min before, go to the front of the line and ask for the tour.

  • Dylan C.

    Afternoon line was incredibly long so go early or sneak / bribe your way into the front of the queue unless you want to wait over an hour to get in. Once inside it's really worth it though!

    Dylan Cromwell · November 23, 2014

    Six million Parisians are buried in this ossuary within the hundred of miles of tunnels beneath the city of light.

    Jonathan Choo · October 28, 2014
  • Ahuv

    You will have to queue for 2-3 hours but its worth it as no other city has something like this. Bring a book. This underground cemetery is awe-inspiring, not a scary horror "attraction"

    Ahuv · October 8, 2014
  • Shei Wah T.

    Get a good guide else you wont whats going on.

    Shei Wah Tan · October 7, 2014

    Get here early. The line is a mile long. It wraps around the block and then some.

  • Benjamin T.

    Some people say that the last admission is at 4pm but it changed or its depending on the season of the year. When i visited the catacombes in september the last admission was at 7pm.

    The line is about 3 hours waiting

    Alex Voskresensky · July 26, 2014

    Best attraction in Paris! A must-see! Definitely worthed waiting in line for 2 hours! But it closes at 16. So go early!

    It is better to take guided tour.

    Aivar Kangust · May 18, 2014
  • Dennis L.

    Arrive before the opening at 10, otherwise prepare to stand outside and wait. Only 200 people are allowed in at a time and it's about 46 minutes to an hour and a half if you are listening to the guide

    Dennis Liu · February 28, 2014
  • Erika T.

    The tunnel floors get damp so be sure to wear proper shoes to prevent slipping. Also, at the end of the tour is a narrow, spiral staircase up. Be prepared for a climb. It's totally worth it though!

  • Mahin J.

    Creepy guard tried flirting with me, asking me if I was scared of death whether I would return to see him.

    Mahin J. · January 10, 2014
  • Chris S.

    must see in Paris!

    Chris Schuepp · January 6, 2014
  • Greg T.

    An incredible experience. Well worth the wait in line, but plan on getting there at 8:30 to gain entry with the least wait. Be prepared for lots of steps and a 2km walk.

    Greg Tuttle · January 3, 2014
  • Christian

    Choose a rainy day and go around 15.30 most likely there won't be any queue anymore. Worked for me however I could have been lucky. Normally you have to wait for 1.5 hours.

    They don't want you using your camera flash, but won't get mad if you turn on the flashlight option.

    Several million skeletons are here. In the galleries, the remains laid against the walls are a macabre decoration. – Green Guide Editor

    First week of November and only 5 min queue at noon.

  • mon s.

    Be there at least 30 mins before they open. Waiting in line for 2 hrs is not uncommon, bring lunch. Also, bring flash light if you want to take better photos. It's slippery and watch for some puddle.

    6 million remains of are buried here. It's certainly one thing you want see before you die... and uh after you die too apparently. Hotel Reco:

    Get there early! We queued for three hours, but it is worth it!

    Jocelyn Holton · September 17, 2013
  • K H.

    Go and hour and a half before it opens and have coffee across the street. You can monitor the lines and still eat some breakfast.

    K H · September 6, 2013
  • Brian C.

    Get there at 9am at the latest. Went there at 9.30 am, place opens at 10am. Got in at 11.15.

    Brian Caffin · August 27, 2013
  • Jim L.

    Be prepared for a wait. And while it's open until 5 most days, the last entry it's at 4.

    Jim LaVeck · August 14, 2013
  • Charlotte

    Make sure you get there nice and early! At about 12:45 the queue stretched right around the block!

    Charlotte · August 7, 2013
  • Leo W.

    Admission stop at 4pm, you have to be here for queue at 2pm or you won't make it in.

    Leo Wong · July 16, 2013
  • Miranda B.

    Be prepared for a long line and a long is totally worth it!

    Miranda Baker · July 12, 2013

    Actually a manageable temperature in these watery tunnels. Best reprieve from the sun you'll find in Paris.

    Hugo Neuproler · July 7, 2013

    A large portion of the catacombs, which is not open to the public, was used as a gypsum quarry and featured in the James Bond film Moonraker (1979) as the tunnels under Hugo Drax's base of operations.

    Bring a umbrella and a bottle of wine

  • Yiannis

    1. Wear sensible shoes. 2. Take a leak, before you get in line. 3. Pack a lunch. 4. If there is ANY chance of rain, take an umbrella. [Comments 2-4 refer to the 2-hr wait you're in for.]
