Your Paris walking tour focuses on the must-see monuments, squares, and gardens located along the River Seine. Through secret details and imaginative stories, your guide bring to life 2,000 years of Parisian history, from the days of the Roman Empire to the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and French Revolution. Around every corner is another discovery.
Begin on Ile de la Cit to admire the Gothic carvings of Notre-Dame Cathedral and decipher its symphony of medieval messages. Then stop outside La Conciergerie, a former royal palace that became Europes most feared prison, and see Place Dauphine, a leafy square that leads you to the historic Pont Neuf for a panoramic view of the Seine.
Next check out the courtyards of the Louvre, where you can ponder the grandeur of the French monarchy and royal life, before continuing to one of the best-kept secrets of Paris: the hidden spaces of the Palais Royal. From here, end your tour with a stroll through Tuileries Garden (Jardin des Tuileries) to soak up the classic French atmosphere.
Your tour concludes at Place de la Concorde, where Marie Antoinette and her king met their fates under the blade of the guillotine. This historic square also offers views of the Obelisk, Eiffel Tower, and Arc de Triomphe.
