Itinerary

Because Good often triumphs over Evil and Paris has managed to stay afloat through her two millennia of history, the tour starts at the Saint-Michel fountain.
We will cross the river onto the Ile de la Cité where you will learn about the mysteries of Notre Dame’s cathedral, the French Sweeney Todd, Marie Antoinette’s final moments and the end of the Templars, amongst other stories.

We will then cross the Pont Neuf to return to mainland Paris to learn about the Protestant massacre of the 16th century. The tour will take you the area of les Halles, where prophecies will be revealed, young men lost their heads for a beautiful woman and thousands of corpses and skeletons where transferred out of their graves to the Catacombs.

This tour will reveal some of the darker stories of Paris’ past: murders, tortures, executions, prophecies from the middle ages to modern France to the 19th century.

Information

This tour is not suitable for young children, but teenagers are usually quite fond of it.

Can be done in the evening or at night.

  • Paris
Bercée par la culture française et espagnole, j’ai vécu en Espagne et en Angleterre avant de m’installer dans l’est parisien. J’ai fait des études d’histoire et d’archéologie. Je suis une grande passionnée d’art, de voyages et de musique. J’adore également dénicher les trésors dans les friperies et les bouquinistes, les marchés parisiens, les promenades et pique-niques sur les quais de Seine ou le Canal Saint-Martin, me perdre dans les chemins du Père Lachaise.

Bref, j’adore partager les secrets, histoires et lieux qui m’ont fait tomber amoureuse de la Ville Lumière.
