RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne, thinking about Halloween and how to spend it. The world's largest grave could be your resting place for a night. The catacombs under Paris are the eternal resting place for about 6 million people. And Airbnb has a contest offering the winner an overnight stay for two in the bone-lined bowels of Paris. Breakfast and bedtime stories are included. Guests are asked to respect the catacombs as you would your own grave. It's MORNING EDITION.
