Overview of the tour in Paris

monuments morning and evening, everywhere! It is not easy to face, in just a few days, a new city, let alone one as full of wonders as Paris! This tour will teach you to understand Paris, why it is the way it is. You will never finish learning new things about Paris, but, from now on, you will know where to place each new discovery.

The tour will take you through the three oldest neighborhoods, where it all originated and still constitutes its heart today: Les Halles, the Ile de la Cité and the Latin Quarter. The Paris we see is the one created by Baron Haussmann in the 19th century, but, with attention, we will discover traces of the 17th, 14th and even much, much earlier.

My name is Gerardo and I will be your guide. I love these neighborhoods, where I have lived, worked (usually as a teacher) and studied (I did my doctorate at the Sorbonne) for more than 20 years. I can tell you thousands of things about these streets and the characters that have walked them throughout history and the legends and novels they have inspired, however, there will always be millions to discover.

This activity includes:

  • Ile De La Cite
  • Quartier Latin

We are located at the exit of the Metro Pont Neuf (line 7), in the little square in front of the entrance of the Samaritaine department store, formed between Rue de la Monnaie and Rue du Pont Neuf. The three metro exits are very close, but the best one is number 1, indicated as "Rue de la Monnaie". From there you will see the Seine River and me, wearing a white hat.
