Catacombs in Paris

My husband and son have 13:00 tickets for the Catacombs. We understand there will be a long wait, even with tickets. How early should they arrive? Thanks.

I've never heard of there being a long wait for ticket holders ? You have a timed entry ticket correct ? I'd read the instructions of the website and ticket and arrive when they say

should not be long since you are smart to have bought a ticket with an entry time;
as I went there on a whim, and waited 2 hours to get in

There is a roped-off entrance, just in front of the Catacombes, for ticket holders.
Don't make the mistake of getting in line behind the other people who don't have tickets. I'd get there about 15 minutes before your timed ticket.

We had tix in November. There is a separate line for ticket holders to the right as you face the entrance. Just show up about 15 mins ahead and you will go in right about the time you have reserved.
