What you'll do

The recent fire (april 15th), which partly destroyed Notre-Dame, a master piece of the World Heritage and provoked the spectacular collapse of its XIXth century’s spire, raised global interest and instant support. What treasures did we manage to save; what choices do we have to reconstruct Paris iconic monument? We'll meet on the Left Bank just opposite Notre-Dame. After briefly retracing the history of the cathedral of Paris that took over 200 years to erect in the Middle Ages, we will then proceed to visit the nearby Sainte-Chapelle, a gothic gem built by King Saint Louis on the Ile de la Cité to host the precious relics of the Passion of Christ. We 'll make the most of this early visit (1 H approx.) to enjoy the marvellous stained glass panels and its 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments which depict the history of Mankind from the Genesis until the arrival of the relics to Paris. After the visit, we will cross the boulevard du Palais to reach the Flower Market located on the northern side of the Cathedral before proceeding to the famous Ile Saint Louis, named after the king who built the Sainte-Chapelle. There we will finally indulge ourselves with a double ice cream from Berthillon. The visit will last approximately 3 h, just the right time for sharing my expertise and passion for one of Paris oldest districts and an unique place in the heart of Parisians.
