Stories In The The Heart Of The City

Overview

This is the perfect tour for your first day in the city. Not too short, not too long, but just right. Get a great overview in The Heart of The City so that you can enjoy a nice dinner before conquering that jet lag so you’re ready to hit the pavement running on your following day.

City secrets are not safe from me. I love sharing these little treasures. As we walk by these often overlooked historic spots, I can point out the little locations that make great memories. It is easy to fall in love with the beauty and not remember that kings and revolutions occupied the same streets you are walking.

Besides the secrets of Notre Dame, I want to show you what else surrounds you on Isle d la Cité. We will see Gargoyles, Saints and Kings before we cross over to the Left Bank, famous home to Artists past and future.

The differences between the two banks will be shared along with the foundation of the city and Europe’s oldest school. The Left Bank has so much to offer including gardens and the oldest tree which is from….You guessed it…CALIFORNIA!

The  Artist soul in all of us will love the stories and especially the gourmet spots we will pass. These real streets that have not changed since the Middle Ages. No wonder Midnight in Paris was filmed here! We will see the haunts for some of your favorite authors and musicians who have captured our imaginations.

Perfect for the first days of travel to orient yourself with the city and get some tips from your experienced guide. This tour offers the best stories of the local area that shouldn’t be missed. Especially nice for the walkers and the curious. We will cover a lot quicker, but it covers a lot of must-see monuments.
