Description

Journey through a darker side of the history of Paris on a walking tour of some of the city's great crime scenes. Follow a route that traces shady business dealings, sites of execution and much more. Discover how Paris was once a maze of side streets where it was easy to get lost, providing refuge for thieves and other miscreants. Learn, for example, about the emblematic Pont Neuf where, in the 17th century, the crooks, thieves and beggars came from the Cours des Miracles to steal the bourgeois before returning to the neighborhoods around the Halles and Beaubourg. Learn about the great gallows and gibbets of Montfaucon, and listen to surprising facts and fascinating anecdotes on the approximately 2km walk. Discover Paris from a completely different perspective.
