Tour description

"Lutetia is an island on the Seine River populated by the Parisis. " Julius Caesar -50 BC
We will start in the "Latin" neighborhood on Saint-Jacques Street (the oldest and largest in old Paris (Lutetia). I will tell you the history of the city and its inhabitants. We will also talk about construction, destruction, civil war and revolution.

  1. Do you know that Paris was an island?
  2. Why is Paris 6 times smaller than Madrid and 12 times smaller than Rome?
  3. Why is it less populated today than a century ago?
  4. Why are we Parisians revolutionaries and hate the English so much?
  5. Did you know that the Vikings invaded and sacked Paris four times?


We will travel in time as we visit in this order:

  • Le Panthéon (START OF THE TOUR)
  • Sorbonne
  • Quartier Latin
  • Les thermes (vestige of Lutetia)
  • Ile de la cité
  • Notre Dame (is under construction)
  • Pont neuf
  • Louvre Museum (END OF THE TOUR)

AND many other things... :D

Approximate duration 2 hours.
