Besancon - Downtown - A man was driving down a road at a very high speed and crashed into a brick wall. At night time, you can hear squealing tires, and a man saying, "Merde!" (French curse word) before hearing a crash.

Blois - Fougeacuteres Sur Bieacutevre - Poltergeist outbreaks with loud banging noises on house walls, things being frozen in ice and eerie figures that make themselves noticed from the window sills.

Lyons - Seyssuel - Rumor has it that there was once a school ground that got destroyed in World War One. Since the village was re-built in the late 1920s, ever since then, there have been reports of poltergeist activities, contagious laughter and singing.

Paris - Best Western Montparnasse - Reports of awaking from strange dreams to see a bright wispy blue hand and arm directly over their face.

Paris - The Catacombs - Found Camera and video, of an explorer, the footage shows him running, and being afraid of something. He was never found.

Paris - Eiffel Tower - One night, a girl and her boyfriend went out. The girl arranged the date to break up with him. He wanted to propose to her. When she told him, he erupted. He took her to the top of the Eiffel tower, and threatened her. She didn't believe him, because he had always been so nice to her. So when he said if she married him, he would spare her, she said NO. Then, he pushed her off the top! At night, you can hear a girl laughing and saying NO, then a scream, and silence.

Versailles - Chateau of Versailles - This was the home of the French royal family from 1682 to 1789, when the French Revolution began, and in the end, the King and Queen were beheaded. People experience seeing people in 18th century clothing and a different landscape from what it is today. It is said that you travel back in time during their visit. Also an odd silence is heard. The most famous ghost of this palace is Marie Antoinette herself, the queen who was beheaded long ago.

Vimey Ridge - One student tells of hearing the sounds of the war. Another described being grabbed by someone who looked like they were in a period movie about the site and being told to "run for your life you stupid kid" and being shoved towards the tunnel exit. As they were exiting the tunnel, yet another student tells of seeing, in plain daylight, a soldier stepping on a land mine and then nothing.

Vimy Ridge - Canadian trenches - Soldiers have been awoken by the sounds of heavy breathing and gear rustling, we where startled and amazed to see a German soldier in full ww1 combat gear attempting to "stick" them with a bayonet.
