    The Ile de la Cité is the cradle of Paris where Romans settled after their victory against the Celtic tribes including the Parissi that gave the name to Paris city. While little remains from this period, the Ile de la Cité still features the greatest monuments of Paris in medieval times, whether it be Notre-Dame cathedral (miraculously still standing after the terrible fire of April 15th 2019), the Sainte-Chapelle or the Conciergerie, both within the Palais de Justice, much older royal palace than the Louvre. Strolling through Notre-Dame’s quarter, we will be able to imagine what could have been the rest of the Ile de la
    Cité before the massive destructions led by Haussmann beginning in the mid-19th century. From there, we’ll cross the second remaining natural island of Paris, the very fashionable Ile Saint Louis to head to the Marais district. Named after the former marshes (“marais” in French) caused by the dead arm of the Seine River, the Marais district is unique in Paris, gathering at the same time sumptuous Italian Renaissance and French classical style private mansions now mostly museums, the Jewish quarter, some the hippest design and fashion boutiques, art galleries featuring the up-and-coming artists, chic eateries and at night, bars and clubs of every kind. Paris is definitely not a dead city !
    The visit involves walking. Please bring appropriate footwear.

    Along the Seine River: Paris’ monuments from the Louvre museum to the Eiffel Tower
     
    Price per person: 22€.
    Max number of participants: 20.
    Language: English
    Not open to people with reduced mobility
    Registration: from May 15th to June 15th
     
    Meeting place & time: in front of the glass pyramid of the Louvre museum, at the statue of King Louis XIV on Wednesday July 20th 2022 at 2:30 pm. End : 5:30 pm near the Eiffel Tower. 
     
    The historical perspective of Paris looking west begins with the world’s most famous museum, the Louvre. Long closed off with the Tuileries palace, it now opens up toward the Concorde square, the Arc de Triomphe and even the business center of La Défense. Strolling through the Tuileries garden is like visiting an open air museum gathering both classical and more modern sculptures. From its terrace, we will enjoy the best view of the Orsay museum across the Seine River and the humongous Concorde square. As we cross the bridge, we will see some of the emblematic monuments built for the 1900
    World Fair: the most beautiful bridge of Paris where recently married couples across the world like to take their pictures: the Pont Alexandre III, the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais. The Palais Bourbon tells another story, that of a former town mansion of the daughter of King Louis XIV with his second official mistress, and where today deputies vote for new laws. We’ll also go through King Louis XIV’s biggest project in Paris, the Invalides, still used as a military hospital for veterans, and we’ll finish with King
    Louis XV’s military institution, the Ecole Militaire, closed to the public because still functioning as an elite military school, whose former training field, the Champ de Mars, now proudly showcases the Eiffel Tower!
