What you'll do

From the right bank to the ile de la Cité we will discover the evolution of Paris from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance. We will begin with a stop in front of a private mansion from the 17th century before visiting a gothic cellar from the 13th century. First immersion into the medieval life and in case of bad weather a warm stop! Then we will discover the most common building for the poor and middle class Parisian during the Middle Ages. We will have a look on a very amazing church built in two very different architectural styles! Before joining the Saint-Louis island, we will have a friendly stop in a lovely café to drink a hot chocolate or a latte... Arrived on the ile de la Cité we will return into the atmosphere full of mysteries and legends of the Middle Ages with the love story of Héloïse and Abélard the French Romeo and Juliet, the life in Notre-Dame cloister and many other things... We will also make a jump through time during the Gallo-Roman period to discover Paris before Paris. I wish with this tour to make history come alive, to give the mute buildings of the past a voice and help you to engage with the city on a deeper level than typical tourist activities would.

Hi I am Nathalie. Passionate by the history and the evolution of my city I want you to share in the same and to see Paris from a different way. I studied Art History and Archeology at Paris-Sorbonne University with a specialization for the Antiquity and the Middle Age. I like to show different ways to understand the spirit of Paris. To me there is nothing like learning by walking and observing. Then If you want to live the Paris of the cathedrals, of damsels and noblemen, of secrets and legends... Follow me! I want to bring medieval Paris to life.
