Full description
Discover the macabre, yet fascinating history of the Catacombs of Paris from the comfort of your home on a fully interactive virtual 1-hour webinar led by a French history expert. Take a digital tour that is loaded with a wide array of interactive activities where you will discover the history hidden below the streets of Paris, which you can’t find with a simple google search. “Descend” through the Barrière d’Enfer (or “Gates of Hell” in English) and be led through many of the Catacomb’s rooms that are off-limits to the public. It might be a bit creepy, but you’ll be fascinated to learn about the incredible structures you will encounter. Explore the network of tunnels where over six million corpses were buried. Gasp as you discover how the bones provide the structural support that keeps these tunnels intact. See some of the most astonishing Parisian art and architecture found in these catacombs. Created by artists throughout the years, many of the bones of the dead have been refashioned into ghastly and spectacular works of art. At the end of your virtual tour, expand your knowledge and ask the questions you always wanted to ask about this haunting space during a live Q&A session. Invite the whole family — huddle around the computer and watch together. There will only be one login per booking, and thus the virtual tour cannot be accessed on multiple devices. Any device may be used and no special program is needed. An email will be sent the day of the activity with login information. No webcam or microphone is needed. If you would like to interact you are welcome to, but no one will see you or hear you speak unless you choose to participate in the Q&A portion, which is only audio. Your privacy is very important.
