Catacombs of Paris

Touring the Paris Catacombs
Despite the long lines (almost a 90-minute wait when I went in October), the catacombs were definitely a sight worth seeing. The "Empire of the Dead," as the sign proclaims, is as morbidly fascinating as one would think.
Artistically arranged human bones and skulls line the walls of these dark tunnels under the city of light, accompanied by plaques bearing philosophical quotes, biblical verses, or the original resting places of the bones displayed.
Though the site is certainly a must-see for lovers of history, archaeology, or all things morbid, this city of bones is not for the faint of heart!
