A Boneyard Beneath the City
The bones of more than 6 million Parisians, including Rabelais, Robespierre and Danton, are buried in the network of tunnels that underlies most of the city, and the story of how they got here is fascinating. The quarries are dug to a depth of five stories (don’t go if you’re claustrophobic). The 45-minute tour is about two kilometers (1.25 miles) long and includes 213 stairs: 130 to descend and 83 to reach the exit. Closed Mondays.
