    The Paris Catacombs
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Once you meet the guide the tour will begin, pick up a headset to hear the details provided by your guide. You’ll explore the darker side of the City of Lights, as you bypass long lines with fast-track entry. Listen to the guide as he reveals the stories of how the catacombs were built and the projects that took place in transferring bones from around the city to this point. The guide will escort you through nearly 300km of tunnels and narrow paths stretched below the streets of Paris that used to be limestone quarries. You’ll learn the resting places of more than 6million people dating from the 18th century and be amazed at the chambers as you pass and see the bones and skulls surrounded. Next, you will be escorted to the special access camber where the guards will grant access just only for your group. Here with the help of the guide you’ll understand and see the secret chapel decorated with skulls and femurs of the French Royals, Decures sculptures, the quarries footbath, the Sacellum Crypt, the sepulchral lamp, and Gilbert’s tomb. With this unique access to the rooms which are not accessible to the general public, you get to discover the Catacombs of Paris fully. Your tour will end after a full detour through the cool and clammy corridors to see the bones and skulls of the long dead, pushed into carvings and embedded in the walls.
