My Husband and I visited the catacombs at the weekend around 5pm. We got the metro to Denfert-Rouchereau and it was only a couple of minutes walk. We had bought advance tickets on the official website so was able to go straight in which is...More

Wow! I didn’t really know what to except. Although a bit eerie this is the best attraction. I would suggest buying tickets in advance. We had tickets for 10:00am, they opened the doors and we were right in. We walked the tunnels checking out all...More

We traveled with 4 children to Paris. My boys absolutely loved the Catacombs. Dark tunnels with bones piled from floor to ceiling the whole way. A little boys dream. Book your tickets in advance because the lines can be hours to buy a ticket.

I got tickets online for 10 am and there were maybe 15 people in the pre-ticketed line when we arrived. The line to buy tickets wrapped around the corner, so I couldn't even guess to how long it was. Look for a green shed-like entrance...More

We did the 2-hour skip-the-line tour, and we would highly recommend it! Our guide Avi was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. He did a marvelous job explaining French/Parisian history, and how this truly unique "Catacombs" burial ground came into being. BRAVO!!

We had a great time at the catacombs! It was probably #2 on my list next to going to the Eiffel Tower. I would recommend gettin the line skipping pass at least a week in advance maybe earlier. The line skipping passes sell out pretty...More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small
