Human remains of millions of Parisians lie 135 feet underground at the Paris Catacombs (Les Catacombes). The 14th arrondissement attraction doesn't appeal to all, but for those who are interested, here’s how to make the most of this subterranean experience.
Théatre le Ranelagh
A leader in the French theater scene, Théâtre le Ranelagh is unique in its offering subtitles in English for non-French speakers in its performances. It is one of a few Parisian theaters credited with making French theater more accessible to an international audience.
The theater is allowing the performing arts scene of Paris to be more widely enjoyed, not changing the dialogues or holding separate shows but by making simple translations visible. Audience members are able to read along as the words are displayed in English above the stage.
The theater itself is a classic French theater, ornately decorated and luxuriously draped in red velvet and carved oak paneling. Constructed in the early 20th century on the site of the Château de Boulainvilliers, it stays true to its roots as a historic site. Plays such as Cyrano de Bergerac and those by Moliere are joined by contemporary musicals such as Oliver Twist.
