Step into the beating heart of the Renaissance

The Catacombs of Paris were built within an existing underground network of tunnels, it was decorated over many years with the remains of bones from close to 6 million Parisian civilians that were moved by officials and clergymen with clandestine intent.

Underneath the city of lights lies the petrifying paradox of darkness where unrestful death is at its highest. During our one hour tour, you will dive with our expert guide in the night of the tunnels of the catacombs, former quarries that became the ossuary of the former residents of Paris. You will learn how this site saved the city from ruin and the reason why it got created.

The catacombs of Paris are vast, over 200 miles (322km) of tunnels are buried under the city and only 1.25 miles (2 km) are officially known and accessible. The Cataphiles are people who are passionate about the site who created many areas for different purposes in the nooks and crannies of the site such as hidden restaurants, bars or even secret cinemas.

You will learn during this live experience how the remains of bones of Parisian civilians were places to form works of art and how the stones collected from these quarries got used to build some of the most famous landmarks in the city.

You won’t need to move from your home to enjoy this tour. You will be able to honour the remains of Parisian people who form this immense design that is the Catacombs and discover a unique experience throughout a mysterious journey in the deepness of the city.
