The Île de la Cité tour is one of our most popular and loved tours: the simple liveliness of this tour will make you lose yourself into the very heart of Paris!
Our private guides have conceived the Île de la cite tour aiming at providing an overview about the history, art and architecture of the city’s evolution key periods! During that journey back in time, you’ll learn about those “mythical places and monuments” like the ancient Notre Dame cathedral, gothic masterpiece from 1163 and unquestioned heart of Christianity in France, the royal masterpiece of Sainte-Chapelle, conceived to host Christ’s crown of thorns and a few relics from Jerusalem. There’s also the Conciergerie, the Royal residence then turned into a gloomy jail and finally Île Saint-Louis, the small Provençal-like isle, full of its pretty cafés and cozy restaurants.
But that’s not all! When you cross the famous Pont-Neuf and land on the opposite river bank you’ll meet the elegant Hotel de Ville square, an Italian-style building and headquarters to the town hall. We will finally visit the medieval town of Chatelet with its white and superb Saint-Jacques Tour.
Only with our private guide will you travel through time: from the origins to the present days with our Île de la Cité tour!
