Summary of The Day: As historical as it is marvelous, walk the footsteps of 2,000-year old history as you explore the heart of Paris, Ile de la Cite. An island sitting in the middle of the Seine River, this location was the home of kings and the site of world-changing political uprisings. Better yet, hear about the gruesome histories, revolutionary rivalries, and romantic interludes that happened in this very location as your City Wonders English-speaking guide entertains and educates you with colorful expert commentary.
Then join your guide as you visit the visually stunning Notre Dame Cathedral with its flying buttresses and gothic architecture. See for yourself why Victor Hugo chose this monument as the setting for his widely-acclaimed novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Soaring spires reach toward the sky as looming gargoyles pierce you with their stony eyes. Listen as the monumental organ and imposing bell towers ring to life, creating a superbly ominous ambiance. And learn the intriguing backstory of how this captivating cathedral came to be.
Your guide will unfold the histories and mysteries forever captured within these walls, from days of antiquity to the present. Once you’ve explored the interior of the impressive edifice, the tour will continue to nearby Sainte Chapelle where you’ll be whisked past the crowds with Skip-the-Line access and straight into this hidden wonder of Paris.
Another gothic masterpiece, this former chapel of King Louis IX, also known as Saint Louis, 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.
Because of its popularity, this admired monument can have lines stretching upwards of hours. But not when you book this exclusive tour. Get the most out of your visit to the area, enjoy Skip-the-Line access, be enthralled by your expert guide, and save precious vacation time with this tour of both Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle.
