While almost everyone who travels to Paris visits Notre Dame cathedral, people rarely take time to see the archaeological crypt located underneath Notre Dame. (The entrance is located at the far end of the square opposite the 'front doors' of Notre Dame.) Archaeologists have found ruins underneath the Notre Dame courtyard that trace back to the beginnings of Paris. Combined with the very informative museum displays, the ruins are a great way to learn about how Paris was founded and developed.
