To ensure the safety of visitors, French authorities enforce security measures upon entry to the Catacombs. Only bags smaller than 55 cm. x 35 cm. x 20 cm. will be allowed. Walks will is not responsible for entry denied due to large luggage. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience and delay which may be caused by extra security checks.  

The Catacombs have changed their admission policy to ensure that only 200 people are allowed inside at any given time. Although our tickets are pre-booked with skip the line access, this may mean a slight delay on entering if capacity has already been reached. We expect that the instances of this will be limited, but ask for your patience if you travel on a busy day and are affected by this unavoidable circumstance. It should make for a much nicer experience for all. 

Please be advised that there are 130 steps to the Catacombs. Unfortunately, there is no elevator access. Those with heart problems, claustrophobia, or other medical conditions should take this into consideration before booking this tour.

Please note that there are neither toilets nor cloakroom facilities at the Catacombs.
