I am very confused whether or not to buy advance tickets for the Catacombs in Paris and what the prices are. I believe the official site is:
If you look at the information you will see: Type of visit Full rates Concessions Catacombs and exhibition 13 €* 11 €* Coupled ticket Catacombs of Paris - Archaeological Crypt 17 €* 14 €*
I believe "Concessions" means "child", "disabled", "elderly" and certain other terms, BUT I'm not sure. In fact I have a 15-year old with me so it's relevant.
- What is the Archaeological Crypt? Is it worth it? It's not described on the website.
Further adding to my confusion, a few lines down one sees:
PLAN YOUR VISIT! BUY YOUR TICKET ON-LINE TO REDUCE YOUR MINIMUM WAITING TIME, AND BENEFIT FROM AN AUDIOGUIDE. AT FULL PRICE WITH TAPE GUIDE: 29,00 € YOUTH RATE FROM 4 UNTIL 17 YEARS OLD (WITHOUT TAPE GUIDE): 5,00 €
These prices seem completely different than the 17 and 14 given above! Finally to add to the confusion I see this on the same page!
Free Admission (upon presentation of a valid ID):
Youth 17 and under,
Why pay for a youth when they are free?
At the actual site where you pay:
You will see: CHOISISSEZ LE NOMBRE DE BILLETS PAR CATEGORIE Tarifs au 29/03/2018 reste 20 Places Prix unitaire Quantité Plein tarif coupe file avec audioguide 29,00 € T. jeune coupe file sans audioguide 4-17ans inclus 5,00 €
- Can someone explain the pricing for adults and youth? Is it perhaps more to get advanced tickets? Is the audio guide essential?
