We visited the Catacomb. It was truly amazing. We pre-bought our tickets and I’m glad we did. We were let in a couple minutes after our 4:30 qued time. We went through security and were given a cell like device to easily listen to commentary...More

We ordered tickets to the event using Headout, and we were glad we did. The other queue was endless. There was a queue at the other line, but only a few minutes wait. When we got in, there was a narrow staircase (not too long)...More

I highly recommend purchasing the skip the line pass. I was able to quickly get into the event without waiting and the sites there are not to be missed! I can see how frustrating the day might be if you do not purchase tickets in...More

Easy to buy and redeem last minute tickets to our favorite experience thus far! Catacombs were awesome, creepy and amazing. Headout made it simple.

Definitely fascinating to see all the bones but not at all worth the 2,5 hours waiting in line for 25 minutes under ground.

The skip the line ticket definitely worths it as the queue is more than two hours long, while if you book online you go straight in. Another plus in that your ticket includes an audioguide which is very helpful and makes you appreciate this historical...More

Having a free day in Paris, I visited the catacombs on impulse. I arrived just before the place opened at 10 am and the line snaked around the Block. It took two hours to get to the entrance. Entrance is 13 Euro for an adult....More

We were looking for a ticket office with a good 15 minutes (even though we saw quite a large queue of people) before, we saw that it was right next to us - we were fooled by the inconspicuous small "booth" with underground entrance. Entering...More

Not much of a difference to be honest. It will be a personal guide instead of audio. I used audio guide and it was informative. Make sure you buy tickets in advance even if it just for a regular visit.
