Paris Walking Tour from East to West - July 10th 2023
This tour is a combination of some of my favorite walks and tours:
an old district with intimate streets and secret passageways, a walk along the river, the emotion of seeing Notre Dame cathedral, the spectacular open vistas of the Louvre, Tuileries garden and Concorde square. My great pleasure with this tour is to combine more secret places to iconic monuments. And it is a great way for you to embrace diverse aspects of the city, varied cityscapes.
The length of the tour allows us to talk about whichever subject you are interested in, whether it is history, Paris and France today or some Paris stories from my 20+ years in the city of lights!
If you like hiking, variety and are not against coffee breaks with a view. . . then this tour if for you!
The tour starts near a metro station on line 8 where we will start walking towards the old Marais district.
We will be walking through Vosges square and a some quiet passageways to reach the river. On the way, you'll be able to see one of the oldest mansion in Paris. We will then walk through a first island, reach the second island where Notre Dame stands.
After Notre Dame, we will keep walking West towards the tip of the island and along the river to reach the Louvre Museum. We will cross its centuries-old courtyards and enjoy the fresh atmosphere of the Tuileries Park to reach Concorde square, enjoying open vistas on the Champs Elysées avenue.
One more effort and we will reach the bottom of the Champs Elysées to finish our tour near the spectacular Petit Palais and Grand Palais!
Picture stops and coffee breaks are possible at any moment along the way.
The tour is a walking tour.
ALL MONUMENTS ARE SEEN FROM OUTSIDE.
