During this guided tour you discover the historic cradle of Paris but also of the French history.
The impressive and majestic Notre Dame Cathedral with its famous gargoyles awaits you on the Ile de la Cité. You would travel in time, past luxurious UNESCO world heritage site monuments which are an extraordinary testimony of the history and genesis of Paris: the Conciergerie, the medieval towers of the Sainte-Chapelle, the first public clock, the oldest bridge of Paris, the Quai des Orfèvres, the elegant Place Dauphine, the flower market…
The charming small alleys and the hidden squares transport you in an almost island atmosphere.
The tour continues on the most romantic island of Paris: “Ile Saint Louis”. It appears in front of you surrounded by a wall made of tall houses, like a meteorite of the past. In the middle of the 17th century, it was the favourite place of financial, parliamentarians, the gentry and the rich middle-class persons.
Today, far from the tumult of the city, it became the “exile” of many artists and celebrities, cultivating here their own lifestyle.
This island hides the famous and imposing Hôtel Lambert (currently under renovation), the Hotel de Chenizot, the prestigious Hotel Lauzun, the Saint-Louis-en-l’Ile church with its curious bell tower, squares and alleys where illustrious people from history once passed by and, briefly you will have the chance to meet them with the anecdotes that this visit offers.
