Summary of The Day: Take a tour of Notre Dame Cathedral and the Ile de la Cité with an expert local guide, and explore 2000 years of tumultuous Parisian history, from the dark ages to WWII.
We begin with a fascinating walking tour of the famous Ile de la Cité in the heart of the Seine River, home to kings, revolutions, and to the infamous gargoyles. See the imposing walls of the Conciergerie, where Marie-Antoinette spent her last days during the French Revolution. Admire the oldest clock in Paris, dating back to 1535 - it still works! Stand on the 0km point in front of Notre Dame from where all French road distances are calculated, you are truly in the heart of Paris.
As we enter the Cathedral of Notre Dame, you will see why Victor Hugo selected Notre Dame as the setting for his widely acclaimed novel, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The flying buttresses, menacing gargoyles, soaring spires, the monumental organ and the imposing bell towers create an ambience that is as beautiful as it is ominous. Watch history unfold as your expert guide recounts the amazing history of Notre Dame, from antiquity to current day.
Join us on this incredible journey into the heart of medieval and Gothic Paris and be enriched by the history, craftsmanship, and the legacy that envelope City Island and Notre Dame Cathedral.
The tour service ends at Notre Dame Cathedral.
