Catacombs: beneath the 3 Ms…
For over 200 years, beneath the hills of Montparnasse, Montrouge and Montsouris the earthly remains of Parisians from most of the former cemeteries in the central part of the capital are sheltered.
Your mini-group tour allows you to visit these catacombs hollowed into the abandoned limestone quarries of Paris and serves as a historical introduction to understand how Parisians cared for their dead since Medieval times.
Your guide will await your arrival at the outside entrance of the Catacombs. From there and without waiting in line, you will descend a spiral staircase into Hades’ Kingdom of the Underworld and begin to explore the Official Catacombs of Paris walking respectfully amongst the many stacked piles of varnished skulls and bones.
Bring a sweater with you, it's ALWAYS chilly down there ...
