Find out what was Paris was like 800 years ago on a private walking tour that takes you back to the early days of the city. See medieval monuments and learn about the history of the city during the Middle Ages at landmarks such as the Notre-Dame Cathedral and La Sorbonne, one of Europe’s oldest and most renowned universities.
Journey back to the Paris of the Middle Ages as you meet your private guide for your historical walking tour, beginning outside Notre-Dame Cathedral, perhaps the most important monument to medieval Paris.
Stroll past landmarks such as the Hotel de Cluny, a former mansion of Cluny abbots that is now the Museum of the Middle Ages, listening to your guide tell you about the culture, art, and architecture of this period while you admire façades that retain their medieval symbols. Wander the Latin Quarter to see where medieval times live on today, head to the Sorbonne to see one of Europe’s oldest universities, and marvel at the Flamboyant Gothic design of St-Jacques Tower, all that remains of the 16th-century Church of St-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie.
Learn about the mercantile history of Les Halles, and see the oldest intact fountain in Paris at the Fontaine des Innocents (Fountain of the Innocents). You will even hear the surprising connection that the ultra-modern Centre Pompidou has to the Middle Ages.
