Paris Walking Tour: Secret Sites and Hidden Gems
US$ 74.27
Overview
Uncover the little-known treasures of Paris on a 3-hour insider walking tour with a savvy guide. Explore arcaded pathways, hidden alleys and grand boulevards, marveling at Belle Époque architecture and visiting specialty food shops to sample macarons and artisan cheeses. You’ll see top attractions like the Louvre and neighborhood gems like quaint cafes in Le Marais district. As you walk, you'll learn the history of this contemporary city and its ancient roots.
What to Expect
Meet your guide by Place de la Concorde in central Paris, and then set off on your 3-hour walking tour to explore the grand boulevards around the 8th arrondissement. Luxury and elegance abound in the area, and as you walk your guide will point out examples of beautiful Belle Époque architecture.

You'll stop at a renowned food shop to sample one of the capital’s finest macarons – mini-meringues sandwiched together with cream.The brightly colored, melt-in-your-mouth treats are ubiquitous around France, and the Parisian shops that sell them hold a prestigious reputation around the world.

Continue walking to the Louvre Museum, an iconic building home to some of the world’s most celebrated art. Amble through an arcade that offers a glimpse into the famous gallery, and then relax in the surrounding gardens as your guide regales you with tales about Paris’ art and culture.

You'll then head to a lively Parisian market to indulge in one of the country’s popular gastronomic pleasures: cheese! Meet some of the friendly traders and sample their wares, trying crumbling chunks of pungent Roquefort and slivers of Brie. There is plenty of free time to stroll the market, if you want to buy some cheese.

Finally, you'll walk to Le Marais, a historical neighborhood full of trendy cafes and vintage boutiques – all exuding bohemian charm. Wander through tucked away Arcades, hidden streets that even locals don't know about, and the narrow streets that speak to Paris' rich medieval history. Finish the tour in the forecourt of Paris’ contemporary art gallery: the Pompidou centre, an incredible example of modern architecture in the heart of medieval Paris, and a fitting finale to this revealing tour of Paris’ best kept secrets.
