You will also discover very special coffee shops and the secret apartment of Napoleon 3rd's lover.
We are a group of friends who created three amazing walking tours for discovering the highlights and hidden gems in Paris. In company of Kristina, Elisabeth, Anna, Natalia, Darya, Nadia or myself you will learn much about history, but also about practical life in the city, some gossip and many amazing and thrilling hidden stories. All of us are fond of history, art, architecture, good food and story telling.
We will walk through the centre of Paris on a walk of 3.5 km, following mostly a off the beaten paths track. You will discover many hidden gems and secret places as well as the main highlights in the City of Love. The stories will be told in a very lively way: children will be more interested by stories about the 3 musketeers and the hidden dungeon in the Louvre, for adults we have history, architecture, art and even some spicy anecdotes.
