You will meet your guide in front of INDIANA CAFE and together you will go straight to the entrance of the Catacombs, with our special skip-the-line ticket.60 feet underground lies the largest mass grave of over 6 million Parisians. Here starts the Empire of the Dead!Learn about French Revolution and Robespierre, French literature with Rabelais and Racine. How Paris was built, the underground system of quarries & metro lines. And how Parisians were facing death, from the Middle Ages to the Modern days.Our guides are granted the privilege of a special access to sections of the Paris catacombs that are closed to the general public. Gates to two halls are opened especially for us to see the incredible sculptures chiseled out of the rock in the Port Mahon Gallery. We will also access the Quarryman's footbath, the Sacellum Crypt, or altar where bones were blessed before being "archived," the Sepulchral Lamp, and hear about a very private concert that happened over 100 years ago..
