Paris, France, Oct. 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Paris City Vision, part of the Paris Experience Group, is the international leader in tours and excursions throughout France. For over 90 years, the group has designed extraordinary experiences, bringing 800,000 tourists to 50 must-see destinations in Paris, Brussels and London.
Constantly evolving to meet the dual desires of escape and discovery, the group portfolio contains nearly 500 excursions and guided tours, from the most essential to the most unusual. On Halloween, Paris City Vision presents a special thrill with a visit to the Catacombs of Paris and exclusive access to areas not accessible to the general public.

Not everyone knows, but there is a parallel world under Paris. This world is not made up of intersecting subway tunnels, nor is it made up of complex sewer systems. This world is made up of skeletons… 6 million to be exact! Fascinating and mysterious, the Catacombs of Paris are home to a host of legends that will be told to visitors by a passionate professional guide. Nestled in the abyss, under bustling streets and historical monuments, the Catacombs date from the late 18th century and were originally dug to transfer the bones from Parisian cemeteries that had become unsanitary. After descending 130 steps to a depth of 65 feet, visitors are greeted by the famous front piece "Stop, this is the empire of death" announcing the entrance to this underground labyrinth. By purchasing this visit through Paris City Vision, tourists will benefit from a “skip the line” priority access which can save up to two hours upon arrival.

This tour covers almost one mile of pathways and is reserved for adults in good physical condition. Departure: 3/5 Avenue du Colonel Henri Rol-Tanguy, 75014 Paris

Duration: 2 hours

Price: $80
