Tour description

Hello! I am writing to tell you something incredible...

I recently ran into a friend at the foot of the steps of the Sacré-Coeur basilica . We had intended to discover a small store specializing in angels. Leaving the store we found a pen. Picking it up, we saw a white dove and decided to follow it. It was flying in the direction of the Sacré-Coeur basilica, like a homing pigeon carrying a message from Gaul...
She started the flight and, like a game, we continued to follow her. He passed by the Church of Saint Pierre and landed on the Place du Tertre , posing for the painters who are there.
Suddenly she continued her journey and stopped in the vineyards of Montmartre, where we saw her tear off a sprig of vine. With him in his beak, he flew from the Lapin Agile cabaret to the Maison Rose, reminding us of the famous painting by Picasso and his dove of peace...

Following his route, from there he took us to the bust of Dalida, where he seemed to want to give love to the unfortunate artist... The dove took flight again, leaving behind the statue of Bishop Saint Denis and heading towards the Passe-muraille until stopping at the horns of the great mill of La Galette .

Surely this dove carried a message!

Immediately afterwards, he flew over the Bateau Lavoir, the famous workshop where Picasso created his masterpieces... until finally stopping at the Je t'aime wall ... :)
We then understood the beautiful message that this dove was trying to convey to us; a message of peace, love and freedom.
And it is that this, my city, is loaded with messages, stories, precious corners and curious facts that I would love to share with you.

She was on time. She did break the ice by getting to know her group. She was animated with her stories. She was clear and I understand all her stories. She also pointed out the scammers or people that might approach while walking. It was nice that she recommended places to eat.
