Tour description

Hello! I offer you to discover the revolutionary area at Saint-Germain-des-prés through that beautiful area from Odéon to the "quartier Latin". You will know more about Paris, the french revolution, and the Paris of the middle-aged until the early 20th. Many details and the architecture tell us a lot about ancient times.   

The tour starts at Odéon, near the statue of Danton, a leading figure of the french revolution. We will continue to Cour du Marché Saint Germain, a meeting place of the revolution times. After, we will see where Pablo Picasso painted Guernica. We will go to the fountain Saint Michel and we will come to the Latin district where were founded the first university in Paris, la Sorbonne. I will show a hidden masterpiece of Salvador Dali in the street. We will admire the oldest tree in Paris plant in 1601. And we will finish facing Notre-Dame de Paris.

This tour is for people interested in art architecture and history.

Thierry is such a wonderful guide. Definitely among the best we've ever taken. He was full of fascinating information, knew some really interesting places to see, and had a convivial style. Hoping to return to Paris and see another site with him next time!

Nice tour around the neighbourhoods St. Germain-de-Près and Latin Neighbourhood. Interesting data about history, different buildings, cafés, restaurants, etc. Thierry took us also to see the narrowest "passage" in the city. The tour was interesting and fun!
