Paris Underground

The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre – these famous monuments draw millions of tourists to Paris every year, to the part of the city that lives above ground. Few tourists get to the other part of the city, the part that lives and breathes beneath the surface. This month, National Geographic has dedicated its feature article and photo gallery to subterranean Paris, taking you into the caves and catacombs that twist and turn beneath the city streets. Produced by NPR and National Geographic, the video above follows “cataphiles” who travel through the dark side of the City of Light.
