The five tours include:
From bars and dancehalls to revolutionary triumphs, the Bastille is an area of Paris electric with creative energy and political fervor. Its history stretches from the dark medieval period to the buoyant, eclectic Paris of today.
Dominated by the hilltop Basilique du Sacré-Coeur, Montmartre demonstrates the contradictions of Paris at large – both a bastion of the Faith and a historical lure for illicit pleasures and radical art. Join painters, composers, poets, singers and their hedonistic hangers-on who have flocked here over the years.
One of the most fashionable parts of Paris, this bustling area exudes style and charm wherever you turn- from the stunning architecture to the hip boutiques, cafés and bars. But Marais has a dramatic history too; the rise and fall of monarchs and religions, and chaotic revolutions have all played out here.
The heart of stylish Parisian living, the streets of St Germain have long inspired the likes of Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, Picasso and Oscar Wilde. This arrondisement is edgy, energetic, and trés chic – and shimmers with movie glamour too.
The Latin Quarter
Quartier Latin, or the Latin Quarter, dubbed thus because up to the time of the famous and bloody revolution, students and professors debated here, and set the world right in that classical tongue.
