Description

If you love history, architecture and music, take a guided tour around the beautiful city of Paris to see it all!

Explore the hidden passageways, charming backstreets and eccentric buildings of Paris. You will have a chance to learn about their historical and architectural richness by listening to the stories from your guide. Paris is a great city to discover by foot, giving you the chance to notice its finer details and hidden treasures.

Your tour will begin near the Palais Royal, and will continue in a musical vein at the Opéra Garnier, the magnificent Second-Empire opera house commissioned by Napoleon III. Your guided tour of the Opéra will give you the story of the Grand Staircase and an introduction to the fabulous reception rooms. This is a place where culture and dreams come together!

  • visite très intéressante; nous avons apprécié la compétence du guide qui devait gérer les commentaires en 2 langues, ce qui est tout de même regrettable car cela ne permet pas d'approfondir certains points, puisque le guide est obligé de passer sans cesse d'une langue à une autre.

  • Le tour en lui-même était très plaisant mais les commentaires de la guide n'étaient pas toujours pertinents par rapport aux visites, à l'exception ee la visite de l'opéra qui était très instructive.
