What's tour about

This walking tour focuses primarily on Middle Ages Paris, but it begins at the beginning, in the place where Paris originated on the Ile de la Cité. The walk ends atop Mount Sainte-Geneviève on the Left Bank. In between, the tour winds through the narrow medieval streets of the Ancient Cloister Quarter on
the Ile de la Cité and the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank. It includes NotreDame, the Conciergerie and Sainte-Chapelle, three of the the city’s most famous Gothic buildings. The walk also encompasses some less well known but no less interesting places including the church of Saint-Séverin and the Hôtel de Cluny, the former Paris residence of the wealthy abbots of Cluny. It’s now a wonderful Middle Ages museum. Stops at the Sorbonne, at the charmingly eclectic church of Saint-Etienne-du-Mont and at a remnant of Philippe II’s medieval city wall round out the picture of Paris in the Middle Ages.
