Julia Solis, a writer for National Geographic Adventure magazine, recently explored some of the 170 miles of tunnels under gay Paree and says theyre quite an eyeful.
Solis believes every great city has something interesting under the surface, but the Paris underground is still a towering achievement.
Some passageways are so well-traversed that theyve developed their own social scenes.
For instance, Solis says until recently there was an illegal underground cinema beneath the Palais de Chaillot that was fully equipped for screenings.
There was also a bar and restaurant nearby with complete internet access.
Solis says that the Parisian passageways are incredible to see, but admits theyre not for everyone since they can be claustrophobic. Plus, you can get wet and its easy to get lost.
