Have you ever thought of Paris as of a copy of another, older place? While being the most beautiful city in the world it is modeled after another, much older city. This private guided walking tour of neoclassical Paris takes you through an area that changed dramatically in the years prior to the French Revolution and makes you understand how the city of Paris is a reflection of the city of Rome. Explore the strict and sober elegance of the neoclassical style at Palais Royal, the Tuileries, the Cour Carré and other important sites.
The long lasting building of Paris in the neoclassic style was an important part of the city’s history, probably the most important one, that had a decisive influence of the Parisian and French culture. The buildings and the streets thus created are still a veritable mirror of their era, ideology, values and beliefs.
On this private 2-hour guided tour you’ll learn all about the transformation that city of Paris underwent - from a small, infamously unsanitary medieval city to, through a period of neoclassical idealism, to the fully functional metropolis that is today.
Your guide will show you aristocratic Paris and make you discover what that actually means, delving deep into the essence and ideology of the european nobility and how it's reflected in the buildings, façades and the symbols that adorn them.
