20 Feet Below Paris

Underground_01

Just beneath the shimmering glamor of the Parisian streets is a tunneling web of mayhem that boggles our little brains. This is the secret underworld of Paris.... miles and miles of limestone quarries, which were used to construct the French capital.

Underground_02 According to explorers, dangers abound in the some-185 miles of tunnels: falling into wells, cave-ins, loss of light, lack of oxygen, or just getting lost. But, if you're willing to risk it, you may be lucky enough to encounter intrigue and wonder beyond your wildest imagination! (or something to that effect)

Wow… I love this sort of thing—I'm obsessed with all kinds of subterranea. In fact, I spent my whole summer going in lots and lots of caves and mines and tunnels.

Did you see the reports about the secret society of repairers who operate in those tunnels?
