Paris Eiffel shared tour

The shared guided tour “Paris Eiffel” draws inspiration from the cutting-edge artistic and architectural symbols of the beginning of the 20th century.

The core of this tour is the famous Eiffel Tower, a model for the most advanced engineering born with the intention of getting over the construction limits through an experimental and innovative use of the materials.

The outcome is a huge building: a tapered framework which overlooks the Seine and which mingles with the light blue colors of the Parisian sky.

It is still now the undisputed symbol of the French capital city; however, the Eiffel Tower has not been warmly welcomed when it was introduced for the first time to the public for the Universal Exhibition in 1889.

The greatest criticism was due to its highly contemporary style and to the visual impact that this huge work had on the urban landscape.

However, it was exactly its provocative and conflicting shape that made it famous all over the world. As time passed by, it was beloved by all Parisians. French people have been far-seeing in realizing the positive value of a contemporaneity which combines “Art Nouveau” and aesthetic tradition.

From that perspective, Parigirando proposes a double path: we’ll start from the Eiffel Tower and its Champs de Mars, and we’ll mostly move into the Western part of the city.

Here, we’ll come cross architectural works like the Trocadero square, the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais, two “Art Nouveau” mirror buildings, in a melting of glass mirrors and steel buildings.

We’ll admire the majesty of the Arc de Triomphe and the long Boulevard of the Champs Elysées, both conceived to celebrate Napoleon Bonaparte’s victories and soldiering.

The core monument of our path will be indeed his marble’s grave, kept into the Invalides. With it we will conclude our walk through steps of renewal and memory, while this building golden dome confirms the evidence of the Great Napoleonic Empire.

About Sara

Since she was a baby, since she could touch her home library books for the first time, Sara has developed a great interest for archaeology, anthropology, art and beauty in all its forms, from painting to music, from fashion to food.

Once grown up, she decided to make of all her passions a true job, so that she could share her passions and once at university, in Venice, she turned from historical researcher into tourist guide and personal shopper.

When she moved to Paris, she gained the tourist guide card, so she could convey to travellers her passion for the thousand sides of the VilleLumière. She can lead them into the genuine heart of Parisian life, guiding them to discover the most famous or unusual places, from huge boulevards to narrow medieval streets, high fashion boutiques and small shops, great monuments and traces from the past.

Lover of antiques, good wine and good food, she’s in love with the stories of people who made Paris great, too.

She will make you live again the history of the French capital city through anecdotes, legends and peculiarities. You’ll discover monuments and museums in an art historian perspective, and you’ll never get bored.

Why not admire Versailles, the vacuity of Impressionism, the jewish quarter, and why not a good croissant in one of the best patisseries in town?
