Description

Explore the rich historical heritage of the Marais district, the only district of Paris that was not affected by Haussmannian politics during our exceptional guided tour. We begin our journey on the prestigious Place des Vosges, immersing our visitors in the heart of the old town of Paris. Our route takes you through cobbled streets, sumptuous mansions and architectural treasures that tell centuries of history. Admire the Hôtel de Sully, a 17th-century masterpiece, before visiting the Saint-Paul Church, a building imbued with deep historical significance. Along our route, you will discover the impressive remains of the wall of Philippe Auguste, a tangible testimony to medieval Paris. Our exploration continues through numerous private mansions, such as the Hôtel de Tournelles discovering the picturesque stories of medieval royalty, characters like Louis XIII, Henry II or even Catherine de Medici who will offer you a privileged glimpse of past opulence of this emblematic district. We will stop at a place of great importance for the Jewish community of Paris, the Holocaust memorial, before concluding our visit to the famous Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, marking the end of this historical immersion through the Marais district. Join us for an immersive experience that will transport you back in time and leave you with a deep understanding of the history and culture of this iconic district of Paris.
