The Dark Side Of The City Of Light – Mysterious Walking Tours Of Paris

Not all of the walking tours in Paris take place in the daytime. In fact, not all of them take place above ground! We've uncovered (or should we say, dug up?) a few mysterious walking tours of Paris that are all about the eerie, the fantastic, the underground of the city, and the nighttime.

A visit to the city's most famous cemetery is one of those things you don't want to miss. Or perhaps plunge beneath Paris to experience the mysterious catacombs. Or how about one of our preferred night walking tours in Paris, where you hear about ghosts and legends? You're allowed to hold hands!

Paris Catacombs

If you're looking for something a little different in a Paris experience, consider a trip to the underworld. Explore the labyrinths beneath the city that are the final resting place of millions of Parisians. A tour through the Paris Catacombs is an eerie reminder of the long and sometimes bizarre history of Paris. There are only a limited number of visitors allowed in the catacombs daily, so be sure to book early.

We did this tour and it's now one of most recommended activities in Paris.
