What can I expect?

Ever wondered what it would be like to visit real catacombs? Now you have the chance! You set the pace yourself during this tour, as you  explore the morbid, yet fascinating underground corridors and see real human remains from former Parisians.

How did the Catacombs come to be? It all started in Paris in the late 1700s when the city faced a serious problem: Paris' inner city graveyards were overflowing, causing epidemics and annoying the Parisians. They didn't like stepping over corpses on their way through the streets. Understandable, right?  

When the overfilled graveyards caused basement wall collapses, it was clear  that something had to be done. Workers carried the human remains from the graveyards to the mine shafts near Rue de la Tombe-Issoire. Today over six million bodies rest there, and that amount is actually almost three times the population of Paris today! Now you have the chance to visit the Catacombs and see everything with your own eyes.
