Paris Catacombs Special Access Tour

Ghost Tours Paris
$95
Below the streets of Paris lurks an entire secret history of the city's dead. On this unique storytelling tour, you'll visit the Paris Catacombs to see the remains of millions of Parisians and learn about the fascinating ways in which this ancient city has dealt with its dead. As you explore these eerie tunnels you also enjoy special access to parts of the Catacombs usually closed to the public and facts and stories from an expert local guide.

Your tour starts by skipping the lines to walk directly into the catacombs. This vast, underground cemetery is composed of miles of underground tunnels lined with the skulls and bones of some 6 million Parisians. In the company of an expert guide and a small group of 19 people or fewer, explore this unbelievable city of the dead where each room reveals ever more ornate and macabre bone decorations.

Along the way, hear the unbelievable story of how the catacombs were built and the massive project that was undertaken to move bones from around the city to this point. Your special-access status means the guards will also open gates just for your group, letting you into areas like a secret chapel ornately decorated with skulls and femurs.

Believe it or not, the Paris Catacombs are just as much a symbol of the city as Notre Dame or the Eiffel Tower. They contain bones representing some 2,000 years of history, and their construction was a unique civil engineering project that helped give rise to the modern city. If you want to see a different and completely surprising side of the City of Lights, this is the perfect place to start.

Ghosts, Mysteries and Legends Night Walking Tour of Paris

Ghost Tours Paris
$28
For many, Paris by night is a place of romance and moonlit walks along the Seine. For others, it's a place of mystery and the ghosts of the past that haunt city streets. This walking tour of Paris' ghosts, mysteries and legends takes you on a journey through the hidden Paris – when the City of Light is finally dark. As you visit tucked-away streets off the beaten path, you'll hear intriguing ghost stories and legends that will bring a chill to the night's air, as well as little-known facts about Paris and its history.

Today, Paris is the City of Light – the home of fashion and the center of art and culture in France. But it wasn't always that way. Paris has a long, tragic history of murder and execution, of rampant disease among the lower classes and of bitter wars fought against a corrupt monarchy.

This nighttime walking tour of Paris' ghosts, mysteries and legends takes place under a cloak of darkness, winding down alleyways and cutting through the hushed silence of the night. You will go to the sites of some of Paris' darkest hours – the Place de la Vert Gallant, St Germain de Auxerrois (where some say 30,000 were killed in the St Bartholomew's Day massacre in 1572) and the Palais du Justice (where those found guilty by the court were routinely tortured and executed before live audiences).

You will travel through areas wracked by the plague, the French Revolution, the Paris Commune and Nazi rule. You will learn about the characters that molded the city, from Napoleon and Marie Antoinette to Henry IV and the serial killers that once stalked these very streets.

The Ghosts, Mysteries and Legends Night Walking Tour of Paris offers a rare opportunity to glimpse a side of Paris you won't see advertised on postcards. It's a chance to learn a little more about the City of Light and those who loved, hated, died and killed there.
