A genuine labyrinth in the heart of underground Paris, the Catacombs were fitted out in the galleries of former quarries. Twenty metres underground, the ossuary houses the remains of approximately six million Parisians, gradually transferred between...more

I enjoyed this as an activity. My advice is to go late in the day/evening when the lines are already very short (It stays open until 8pm) and then pay for an audioguide. I went at 6:30 pm. Waited in line for about 20 minutes,...More
We've been to Paris a few times now but had never seen the catacombs. In peak season the lines to get in can take hours we took turns waiting in line so we could explore a cemetery and observation tower nearby. Once we got in...More
We visited the catacombs in February. Glad we booked a tour, our guide David, was very knowledgeable and used humour to lighten the tale. We were glad we booked the tour as we were able to see parts of the catacombs not open to every...More
I had 2 pre-paid tickets to visit the catacombs on Dec. 8th. Due to the riots, the musuem closed its doors that day to ensure the safety of the staff and vistors. Totally fine, I get it.
I recieved an email stating that we simply...More

This was the highlight on my Paris trip. It's a very unique way to learn about the history of the city, and not something you can do anywhere else.

We paid online through Get Your Guide and all we had to do was pick up the tickets down the street at the du Lion tobacco store (show them your receipt), then go get in the line for ticket holders. It cost a little bit more, but it was worth it because we only waited about 30 minutes to get in. Tickets sell out quickly in person, so if this is something you don't want to miss, I would recommend buying online about 1-2 weeks in advance.
Catacombs of St. Callixtus vs San Gennaro (2 Replies)
Which catacomb gives a better experience and why?
March 06, 2016|
St Callixtus are in Rome. You'd have to get an answer from someone who's been to both and it would be entirely subjective as these things are.
rate my itinerary please.. (2 Replies)
so myself and my girlfriend are spending 5 full days in rome and i have done up an itinerary so we get a lot of stuff in. can people read it and let me know if its unrealistic or what? Day 1 (saturday): Go to the Colleseum early and do a tour of that and Palatine Hill. In the afternoon, check out the Forums, Circus Maximus and the pantheon. Day 2 (Sunday): In the morning, go to the trevi fountain. After that, head to the borghese gallery for a tour. Then stay in the park and have a...More

You might want to see the Baths of Caracalla on the same day as the circus maximus as it is just up the street. It will make more sense than making a special trip to see it. After your day at the vatican you can cross the bridge and make your way to the piazza navona and then on to the pantheon. You will have plenty of time each day to add things to your itinerary so you should have a wonderful time. Donna
best public transport to Catacombs of Domotilla (2 Replies)
What is the best public transport solution to get to the Catacombs of Domotilla from around Termini station? I read their website and they suggest taking a bus from Termini station and a few other spots around the city. It appears that there are closer metro stops, like Garbatella or Basilica S Paulo. I know I will have to take a bus for the last leg. But it seems like it would be a much shorter and quicker bus ride from the other two metro stations instead of Termini. Thanks

Bus #714 from Termini (and a little walk) is probably the quicker choice. It is a main bus line so it is quite efficient (for Rome standards). Buses from metro stops have a poorer schedule, and you have to consider time spent going out the metro stop itself.
