The island of "la Cité" is where all the history of Paris started. This is where are located Notre-Dame cathedral, the Sainte-Chapelle and its stained glass windows, and the Conciergerie, a former royal palace turned into a prison during the French Revolution.
This guided tour will help you understand better all the history of Paris, from the origins to the Middles Ages and until today. You will also learn more about Notre-Dame Cathedral, still standing after the fire, that you can visit from outside.
Walking along the Seine river, you will stroll by the flower market and the Court House, until you get to the Pont Neuf, or "New Bridge".
Why do I love leading this tour on the "Ile de la Cité"?
"The "island of the city" is where all the history of Paris is gathered. I like how you can end up in a secret quiet street with balconies covered with flowers, but you still are 5 minutes walking from Notre-Dame cathedral and its activity!"
