Meet your private, fully-licensed guide and follow them as they take you back some 800 years ago to a time when knights, dames, monks and beggars roamed the cobblestone streets of Paris. Imagine this now modern city full of dark and narrow streets, horses, blacksmiths, butchers and… a magnificent cathedral.
The tour starts in front of Hôtel de Sens, one of the last medieval mansions still standing. As you make your way towards Notre Dame Cathedral, you will see the ruins of the 12th century fortification wall that once protected the citizens of Paris from possible barbaric invasions, as well as charming medieval narrow streets and houses. All the fun-facts and details given throughout the tour will give you and your family a great idea of what life in Paris was during that period of time.
You will soon be arriving at Notre Dame Cathedral. Built more than 850 years ago, it is one of Paris’ most iconic monuments. Once saved from destruction thanks to Victor Hugo’s famous novel, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, it was recently severely damaged by a fire during which the roof and spire were turned to ashes. As it is closed for renovations, you will discover the fascinating details of the exterior of the monument and its world famous facade.
The tour ends outside the Conciergerie, once a royal palace of the medieval kings and turned into a prison at the time of the French Revolution.
A game booklet keeps each and every child engaged and entertained during this 2-hour walking tour. And if all the riddles have been solved, the children will be knighted in the traditional way.
