Consisting of over 3,000 km of interwoven tunnels, you can take a guided tour through this underground maze and hear of deaths and spooky tales as you explore.

Palace and gardens of Versailles 

This magnificent palace has survived everything from the Middle Ages and monarchs to the French Revolution so with a history like that it’s not surprising there are rumours about ghosts and spirits. And not just any ghost. We’re talking about the ghost of Marie Antoinette. The gardens and the palace itself are widely believed to be one of the most haunted places in Paris because of the royal ghost so head here on Halloween for some screams.

The Paris Opera House

If you like your theatre with a side of spooks, then the Paris Opera House is without a doubt the best place to go. The haunting of the opera house was made famous by the by French writer Gaston Leroux who wrote about the hidden lake underneath the building. The hidden lake does in fact exist and the city’s metro swerves past it. An eerie scene.

The Rue Chanoinesse 

Near Notre Dame Cathedral there’s a row of very old and charming shops with apartments above that was a popular place for travellers to get married during the Middle Ages when they couldn’t afford the nearby cathedral. This was the perfect opportunity for a local barber and butcher to kidnap the strangers to the towns, cooking their bodies and selling their meat in patties. The stone where they were slaughtered remained until a police station was built in the 20th century. You can still walk down the road and enjoy browsing some of the best book shops in Paris while you dodge ghosts of murders past.
