Interested in seeing where all those heads ended up after meeting their fate with the Guillotine during the French Revolution? Not for the faint hearted, this is one of the most interesting Parisian museums you will ever come across. Home to the remains of over six million people, the catacombs are an underground maze of tunnels filled to the brim with neatly stacked bones and skulls of those unfortunate Parisians of years past. Bring your walking shoes as illuminated tunnels bring you five stories underground, and lead you through almost a mile and a half worth of bones and history. Don’t forget your camera — you probably won’t get this close to this many bones ever again!
