Experience the Highlights of Paris Tour and learn about the history of Paris starting from the Roman era to the ancient French kings, through the ages to the occupation of World War II and how Paris evolved today. It’s an easy to follow commentary with interesting details and many anecdotes.
Starting with the gorgeous Luxembourg Gardens, we continue through medieval streets to the majestic Pantheon and down little known streets to squares with pretty fountains, boutiques, cafés and many more facets of daily life in Paris. The history of Paris continues while we make our way to the islands on the Seine.
Notre Dame is a fascinating Gothic structure. Hear about the legend of the carvings in the façade, the flying buttresses, what happened to it during the Revolution and the famous rose windows. Inside you will see the glorious colors of these windows and the vast internal structure and perhaps hear the organ play.
If you opt for the full day tour lunch is on Île St Louis, the pretty village-like island behind the Notre Dame. A 17th century wonder of architecture filled with cafés, crêperies, bistros, boutiques, fromageries, hand-made chocolate shops, a store selling exquisite jams and jellies, vinegars and flavored mustards from Provence and of course, stop off for the famous Berthillon ice cream made on the island. We continue our walk into 16th century and 17th century Paris while taking one of the stone bridges into the back streets of Le Marais.
