The wait can be long, we waited 1.5 hours after arrival at 11.30am.
Strongly recommend arriving prior to the opening of 10.00am or around 3.00pm.
Last entry is 4pm, with closure at 5.00pm.
Entry is €8 per person with the head sets €3 each.
Whilst the wait is a challenge, once inside, the self guided tour with head sets is well worth the wait.
You descend approx 90 steps in a spiral staircase, to over 100m below the surface and subway system, and are at the time of 40 million years ago, to when the Paris land mass was underwater.
It just amazing..
Photos are permitted along the way, except when you enter the actual location where the bones are located.
Stories along the way detail what each location is and the facts about the spot.
Don't pay the expensive pre-arranged tour prices, catch the nearest train to metro station Denfert Rochereau (blue line B).
As you exit, cross the street you will see a coffee shop. The line to enter will probably be seen as you cross the smaller road, heading away from the coffee shop.
Tickets are not able to be purchased on line and can only be purchased for the day of the tour.
Fantastic to walk the old mines, now catacombs.
