Walk the footsteps of 2,000-year old history as you explore the heart of Paris, Ile de la Cité. Sitting in the middle of the Seine River, the island was the home of Kings of France and the site of world-changing political uprisings. You'll learn everything about the gruesome stories, revolutionary rivalries and romantic interludes that happened in this very location.
You'll join your guide to admire the stunning exterior of Notre Dame Cathedral with its flying buttresses and gothic architecture and understand why this was the setting for the famed 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame'. Your guide will unfold the histories and mysteries forever captured within these walls, from days of antiquity to the present. Once you’ve admired the exterior of this impressive edifice, the tour will continue to nearby Sainte Chapelle where you’ll be whisked past the crowds and straight into this hidden wonder of Paris.
Another gothic masterpiece, this former chapel of King Louis IX was built in 1248. It is home to over 6,500 square feet of 13th century stained glass, two-thirds of which are recently-restored originals. Dazzling in color, this is a sparkling Parisian gem not to be missed.
