Waterskiing on the Seine

Up in the air

Located at the André Citroen Park on the outskirts of downtown Paris is the Generali air balloon.

While the balloon’s primary function is to monitor the air quality of Paris, it also welcomes visitors aboard.  Rise 150m up into the Parisian skies to take in a unique and breathtaking view of Paris.

The Catacombs

Located under the bustling city streets of Paris is the city’s ossuary known as the Catacombs.  At the end of the 18th century, several Parisian cemeteries transferred their bones here and it’s now the final resting place of many including different figures of the French Revolution.

As you enter, you pass under a sign that translates to “Stop! Here is the home of the dead” which leads you along narrow pathways through millions of skulls and bones.

The underbelly of Paris

Inspired by the sewer scenes in Les Miserables?  Want to see and learn about the largest and most modern sewer system in the world?

Well, luckily there is “Musée des Egouts de Paris”.  Not only can you learn all about the sewers including their history and how they work, but you’re also able to go down into the sewers themselves (don’t worry, it doesn’t smell like you think it would).

The great escape

There are now more than 50 escape rooms located in Paris.  Once you’re inside, it’s up to you and your friends to decipher clues to figure your way out of the room.

With unique themes like Parisian history to common escape rooms themes like burglary, sleuthing and science fiction, there’s something for everybody to enjoy.

In the dark

Take your dining experience to a whole new level by dining at the original Dans le Noir restaurant here in Paris.

Founded in 2004, and now with a handful of locations throughout the world, Dans le Noir is a dining experience in the dark.  While your vision will be impaired, your other senses will become heightened as you enjoy your dining experience.
