Paris has an unfair reputation for being the City of Love. But of course there’s much more to France’s capital than walking hand-clasped along a boulevard after a moonlit cruise along the Seine: Paris is one of the most morbid, macabre cities on Earth. Paris’s far more interesting side at the following attractions. Most wax museums are creepy, but that’s not enough to make them macabre. The Musee Grevin on Boulevard Montmartre manages to transcend this barrier. Step away from Lara Croft and Elvis, and take a wander into the French history section where brutal scenes from the Middle Ages await you.
