Creep through the Catacombs under Paris

#80 Creep through the Catacombs under Paris:

Under the streets of Paris you can find the ossuaries of 6 million people. The twisty tunnels lined with skeletons and bones stacked in various patterns is both haunting and beautiful. One must remember that it is not a theme park or haunted house but truly a burial ground and should be treated with respect. The sheer number of skeletons is hard to comprehend and the history of the place is fascinating. This is not an activity for small children or those who get easily frightened – as it can be scary.  But my kids were amazed and we all went away thinking it was one of the most interesting places we had ever been.
