Aimed at everyone of all ages with a passion for history, and those who love finding out more about the paths upon which they walk, this tour proudly brings to you the early history of Paris and its origins, taking you on a tour through time in this stunning city! Discover all about the first inhabitants of Paris, and learn about invasions by the Romans and Vikings, and even its near misses by the likes of Attila the Hun! See ruins and remains left behind by these ancient civilisations, and uncover shocking facts about the Frankish kings and their subjects as the city expanded and developed. From the earliest days of Ile de la Cite to the left-banks’ Latin Quarter, and even to the famous Louvre and Jardin des Tuileries on the Right bank, this tour takes you to amazing popular and lesser-known sites in Paris and reveals its historical secrets, many of which will simply shock you!
This tour is unique and independently researched, taking you to places that you would not even consider could reveal the past of Paris, right under the nose of modernity and the bustle of tourists! I have a real passion for history and particularly love all the gruesome and shocking tales concealed in the capital’s seemingly most unassuming streets and locations, along with many of the more famous ones, of course 🙂 This tour offers you a feel for Paris at its most honest and historical, allowing you to feel deeply connected to the city’s rich past even in the present day. I truly believe that Paris represents the past, present and future all at once, and hope to bring this feeling to you on one of my favourite tours to run.
