These catacombs are very popular with tourists, so book in advance and end up in the shorter queue. Only 200 people are allowed inside at any given time, so people end up queuing for hours. We arrived an hour before they opened, on a weekday...More

''Thus passes everything on earth - spirit, beauty, talent, grace''. Very long and slow waiting queue. Long walking distance. Warm clothes would be useful. Toilets are located upstairs by the exit at the very end.

The catacombs themselves were interesting. My wife and I were very pleased with how close we could get to the displays within the tunnel systems, as well as how well lit and ventilated it was. Our only huge disappointment was the audio guide. The guide...More

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
