What you'll do

This experience starts with a brief introduction to the birth of the French capital and, later, the Gothic style of the building. Even after the fire of April 2019, we still can pay homage to one of the most iconic Parisian monuments (Notre Dame) and understand why it is so important to us French people and the whole world. We'll visit two medieval gems on the island Île de la Cité with a SKIP THE LINE access: the Saint Chapelle and the Conciergerie. Dive deeper into Medieval Times, get to know the old Paris better.

(You might have a different guide replacing if needed during your tour)

Where you'll be

Paris is not only about the classic style of Louis XIV or the eclectic one of the Opera. In Île de la Cité visit, we'll discover the Gothic style and evolution of Notre Dame and the St Chapelle and Conciergerie also—the French King's residence before they moved to the Louvre—which became a famous prison where Marie Antoinette awaited her trial before being beheaded. With an official guide you don't do the line for St Chapelle/ Conciergerie!

Very interesting and personal. Our guide was articulate, full of accurate, factual presentations. We were provided earbuds for radio broadcast discussion in loud populated areas of the tour.

Regarding the tour itself: La Chapelle was unexpectedly (for me anyway) amazing - what a treasure! And the magnificence of La Conciergerie, while visually more austere, was due in large part to it's magnitude, historical significance and dark past. Regarding Paulo: What a goldmine of information - he is truly a historian! Able to both inform and interpret, keen to take questions which were always answered fully and with great insight. But engagingly not 'academically'. This tour connected many historical 'dots' for me.

Paolo is a natural teacher. He is so fluent with his subject and can change to accommodate the interests and questions of his guests. Our trip to Sainte Chapelle and Concergerie was awesome - so much more than I expected. I especially enjoyed his use of visual media on an ipad to illustrate the historical points he was making. Bravo!

Amazing place! Saint Chappelle should not be missed. Paolo was a very personable and knowledgeable guide. Loved his iPad interactives—they really made history come to life!
