Hello! I'm Fabien, I was born and raised in Paris and I don't think I will ever get tired of that beautiful city. I studied graphic arts and art history and trained as a professional cartoonist. I travel a lot and I'm happy to meet new people who are as curious as I am! My free time is practicing my instruments (guitar and piano) and theater and cinema occupy all my weekends.

Tour description

Tales and Legends of Paris, when History mixes with Magic...

Are you ready to venture into the winding streets of the Paris of yesteryear to hear the tales, legends and macabre news that have marked the lives of Parisians throughout the centuries?

As a guide and narrator I will share with you my stories and secrets of the city of lights, in a time when it could have been called the city of shadows...

Always with a background of music selected for each story, we will get in the mood from the first step!

Stories, Legends or proven facts, I will tell you about the true story of one of the most famous fellow citizens of Paris, Nicolas Flamel, the alchemist who is said to have discovered the secret of the philosopher's stone, Notre Dame and the secret of the Devil's Gates. , the Cemetery of the Innocents that was anything but innocent or the authentic story of passionate love from The Cursed Lovers.

The content of some of the stories told can be macabre for a young audience.

What monuments will we see?

- The oldest house in Paris
- Paris's belly
- Fountain of the Innocents.
- La Tour Saint Jacques.
- Place De Greve (Town Hall).
- The Seine Docks
- Paloma Street
- The old house “Au vieux Paris d'Arcole”
- Notre Dame De Paris.

Our advice:

- Wear comfortable shoes and watch the weather to dress accordingly, in Paris it changes often ;)

Nous avons passé un très bon moment avec Fabien. Il nous a raconté des légendes et des anecdotes sur le cœur de Paris, que même en tant que parisienne je ne connaissais pas. Il a répondu à nos questions, nous a recommandé des restaurants. En bref, je vous recommande cette visite !

Fabien has a great knowledge about the history of Paris and he transmits it comprehensively. It was a great way to get to know Paris more and train my French. Definitely recommended!
