This walk is a delightful introduction to Paris. It is ideal for the first-time visitor, but can also be enjoyed by anyone looking for a meaningful look at the city’s architecture and epic history.

You and your private guide will explore the central neighborhoods—the Île de la Cité, the Latin Quarter, Odéon, and the Louvre district. This is the historic heart of Paris. Old and new mix in a visibly fascinating way here, telling the story of the periods and peoples,  from ancient Roman settlers to Résistance fighters, who helped shape how the city looks today.

Although the 2.5-hour walk includes major landmarks such as Notre-Dame cathedral, the Sorbonne, the medieval Hôtel de Cluny, and the Palais du Louvre, you will also see things not highlighted in the typical tourist trails. Quiet, tree-lined plazas and tucked-away courtyards, filled with meaningful details, capture the spirit and history of Paris just as well.
