Take a deep dive into the heart of Paris with our tour of the historic city center and the iconic Louvre museum! Our tours are small—no more than 8 people per visit—so that you get a chance to ask questions and engage in discussion with one of our certified guides as they take you on this journey through the cultural, artistic and political history of Paris.
The Notre Dame Cathedral, where you’ll start the day, is located at the exact center of the city, and from here, you’ll walk to Pont Neuf, the city’s oldest bridge and the perfectly manicured flowerbeds of the Tuileries. You’ll then visit the Place de la Concorde, where the guillotine stood during the French Revolution, and catch a glimpse of the elegant Champs Elysées, as your guide explains the stories behind key figures who helped build the city, including Henri IV, Louis XIV and Napoleon Bonaparte.
After taking a break for lunch—this is the culinary capital of the world, after all—you’ll skip the line at the Louvre and plunge into this world-renowned museum. You’ll learn about its roots as a fortress and then royal residence, and how its origins have made it the repository of some of the city’s most infamous secrets and scandals. You’ll take in the gorgeous (and armless) Venus de Milo, the stunning (and headless) Winged Victory of Samothrace, gape at the crowned jewels in the Apollo Gallery and feel small in the medieval moat that lies beneath the museum. You’ll also learn about artists like Michelangelo and Delacroix and visit the Mona Lisa. Join us for a day of history, art and surprises!
