Google's Street View system makes it easy for anyone with an internet connection to explore the streets of any city, but the company's new Curio-cite series uses that same technology to explore more obscure and hidden areas of one of the world's most historically and culturally important cities: Paris. Curio-cite is a series of 360 degree videos that take place in Parisian locales that people would never be able to see otherwise.

Part of Google Arts & Culture, Curio-cite follows artists, guides, and experts on journeys through hidden and "forgotten corners" of Paris, according to the Curio-site page. These include a tour of the basement of the Opera Garnier, the place that inspired 'Phantom of the Opera,' and a 13-storey condemned building that houses the world's largest street art exhibition.
