Tour description

Paris, an open-air art museum!
Of course, Paris is known for its extraordinary museums, but do you know that you don't need to enter an exhibition to see works of art made by the greatest artists? Paris is filled with major contemporary art pieces, you just have to know where to find them!

A different way to visit Paris, through the prism of contemporary art, while strolling through the historic heart of the city, and learning more about some emblematic figures such as Maillol, Niki de Saint Phalles, Jeff Koons, and many more.
Tour will start in front of the Centre Pompidou, and end in front of the Grand Palais.
During the walk, we will see important landmarks, such as : 

  • Centre George Pompidou
  • Palais Royal
  • the Louvre museum
  • Place de la Concorde
  • the Grand Palais

Important information:

- The tour lasts about 2h30, with a good amount of walking, so wear comfortable shoes
- This is a free tour: At the end of the tour, you are free to tip what you want.
