Overview of the tour in Paris

We meet outside Le Louvre's glass pyramid. Discoveries start right away. We see the perspective that Napoleon invented.

We find out how the “Da Vinci Code” starts with a fib. We spot the lavish café that fills up with locals as soon as the museum closes for the night.

We make our way to “Palais Royal” - a vast gambling hall. We find secret Parisian shops and controversial art by Buren.

And we identify the home of the Chairman of the Central Bank.
A concealed door takes us to place Valois - only recently made accessible to the general public.

We discover a Parisian “secret passage” – the ornate, high-ceiling, 200-year-old ancestor of the “shopping arcade”. The passage we visit is now home to such exclusive stores as Louboutin shoes’ exclusive shop.

Our finale is in Galerie Vivienne, an “indoor street” built inside a block of buildings. With this hard-to-find gem, we end our exploration of Secret Paris.

To see more on this free tour, we do not spend time going inside each building.

On arrival

Meet your guide outside the Louvre glass pyramid - at the foot of the horse statue. The guide will be wearing a Pink Vest!

And don’t worry, we walk rain or shine. Also, we start on time, so don't be late!

But if you’re a tad late, we do not have a standard second stop for this tour so it is best to walk to place Colette.

See you soon!
