Discover the symbolic places of France’s history on this walking tour

Discover symbolic places in the History of Paris and France on this commentated walking tour. Your tour begins at the Palais Royal, a building that was once the residence of Louis XIV and which today houses the Conseil d'Etat, the Conseil Constitutionnel and the Ministère de la Culture.  Next, head to the gallery of arcades that enclose a beautiful garden with sculptures, and the famous Buren Columns.

Then, take the metro in the direction of the Place de la Bastille, the former site of the fortress of Porte Saint-Antoine, which was used as a prison during the reign of Louis XI. The tour continues along Rue Saint Antoine to the Hôtel de Ville. Your guide will give you information on this building, which has been the district town hall since the 14th century.

Wander around the island Île de la Cité and admire the Pont au Change (bridge), before continuing on towards the Louvre Museum. Then, stroll through the Tuileries Gardens, embellished by a variety of sculptures. On arriving in the Place de la Concorde, your guide will explain why this square is known as the ‘Square of the Revolution’ where Marie Antoinette was guillotined.
