Features
Family-friendly

The creepy Paris Catacombs is an underground labyrinth stocking the remains of about six million Parisians, removed from cemeteries at the end of the 18th century. Long tunnels are lined with neatly stacked bones, which will surprise but potentially gross out the whole family (it may not be right for very young children).
