The Paris Sewer System Museum
When you think of a fun holiday you might not consider heading down into the sewers, but Paris has the largest sewer system in the world which dates back to the 1300s and it is actually quite a fascinating way to learn about the history of the city. You can visit the Paris Sewer Museum and find out what goes on underneath the ground. This somewhat smelly museum even tells the story of how Victor Hugo got inspiration for Les Miserables by visiting these sewers and even based the character of Jean Valjean on a sewer inspector he knew.
Dans le Noir
Another one of the most interesting and quirky attractions in Paris is “Dans le Noir”, a restaurant where you dine in complete darkness while being served by blind waiters. You can’t see a thing, but you are guided through the experience by your waiter and you will be able get a taste of what being blind is like. They say that when you lose your sense of sight, your other senses are heightened so that should mean that you enjoy the food even more!
Hidden beneath the streets of Paris, the Crypte Archéologique is a fascinating time capsule which showcases the artefacts of the civilizations which once dwelt in Paris many centuries ago. You can explore a recreated version of a Celtic tribe settlement from 2000 years ago as well as see a number of interesting artefacts from throughout the ages.
