Tour description

Hello! I'm writing to tell you something amazing...

I recently ran into a friend at the foot of the steps of the Sacré-Coeur basilica . We 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 carrier pigeon carrying a message from Gaul...
She began the flight and, like a game, we continued to follow her. He passed by the Church of Saint Pierre and landed in the Place du Tertre , posing for the painters who are concentrated there.
Suddenly she continued her journey and stopped in the vineyards of Montmartre, where we saw her pluck a sprig of the vine. With it in its beak, it flew from the Lapin Agile cabaret to the Maison Rose, reminding us of the famous painting by Picasso and his dove of peace...

Continuing its journey, from there it took us to the bust of Dalida, where it 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 flagpoles of the great mill of La Galette .

Surely this pigeon was carrying a message!

Then, it 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 full of messages, stories, beautiful corners and curious data that I would love to share with you.

are you coming with me?

/!\ Bring bottles of water and arrive 10 minutes early because I can't wait out of respect for people who arrive on time /!\
