Littered with famous landmarks across the city, Paris is one of the most iconic European capitals.
The Sacré-Cœur sits high, inspiring artists in Montmartre, the Champs-Élysées ending with the monumental Arc de Triomphe and of course the world famous Eiffel Tower.
There is more to see in Paris that might not be so obvious, delve a little deeper into the depths of the unknown and under the city you'll find miles of tunnels, running like arteries to form the Catacombs.
Back in the 18th centuary, due to health reasons of local residents and the cemetries becoming over crowded, the government moved about 6 million bodies into limestone quarries that were used in the Roman era.
130 steps down, take a 2km stroll and witness piles and piles of neatly stacked bones and skulls.
Creepy? Yes. Fascinating? Immensly!
The Catacombs is located by Denfert Rochereau metro stop.
If you want more of the city under the city, follow your nose down to the Paris Sewers. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it's certainly different! Explore how Paris deal with waste in this unsusal tour, whilst walking over a grate where you can see (and smell!) what it is all about.
The easiest metro stop here is Alma-Marceau station.
