Overview of the tour in Paris

This tour aims to mix the wonderful place of Paris with the most tragic event in history: The Second World War.

Significant events related to the war happened in Paris; some places are still marked with scars from the war. Together, we will walk approximately 2.5 kilometers across three Parisian districts to discover areas where significant events related to the War happened. Mainly, we will focus on major events:

- The Fall of Paris: How did the German army reach Paris, the French Capital, in only 35 days of combat? What happened in the city during these 35 crucial days?

- The Resistance: How did the Resistance start in the city? We will follow the steps of an early resistance fighter who was part of the first Resistance network in the town, called Musée de l'Homme

Liberation: How did the Allies finally free Paris after four years of occupation? More specifically, we will follow the journey of a famous American writer who swore to free a particular place in the city back then.

All aboard this journey in the past to discover Paris under the light of the Second World War! And for those who want, we can have a drink together at the end!
