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.
