Parismont.com - The Paris tourist attractions that aren’t worth a visit

We've just been to Paris for a short weekend culture break....... catacombs were recommended to us and we went in knowing nothing about what went on, what we would see or the spooky atmosphere you can't help but feel walking around there You descend down a huge spiral never-ending staircase..... walk for miles..... then climb another huge narrow spiral staircase that comes out nowhere near where you went in and no signs to show where to go to leave (take a map - easy enough!) As for searching bags on the way out - yes people are sick enough to try and steal the bones of ancient frenchmen!! We saw 2 skull and an array of bones that had been retrieved as we left!!!!!

You descend down a huge spiral never-ending staircase….. walk for miles….. then climb another huge narrow spiral staircase that comes out nowhere near where you went in and no signs to show where to go to leave (take a map - easy enough!)

As for searching bags on the way out - yes people are sick enough to try and steal the bones of ancient frenchmen!! We saw 2 skull and an array of bones that had been retrieved as we left!!!!!

Having said all of that, this was a sight we were glad we took the time to see….. we didn’t however find it your typical ‘enjoyable’ experience due to the very maccabre nature……. I have no problem with dead people and graveyards etc but found the neverending tunnels filled to the brim with skeletons gave an unexpected unnerving feeling - like we were intruding into their final resting place

We’re not narrowminded and we were glad that we went……. but are glad its over! We will recommend visiting this sight to anyone visiting Paris though!
