Yang akan Anda lakukan

This is a private tour of the remnants of "old Paris" - the city that existed in the Middle Ages and Renaissance, the city of hidden castles, imposing renaissance palaces & baroque mansions, medieval timbered houses, leafy courtyards hidden behind carriage doors, charming squares & public fountains.

You will learn about the city's history, its rich architectural & cultural background, through researched commentary developed by a historian. Learn how the city was transformed (1853-1870) from a medieval warren of densely overpopulated streets to a modern city with broad avenues, city squares & parks, trees....and the world's 1st system of gas lighting.

You will also see firsthand the nuances of Gothic vs Baroque architecture & art. By visiting the mansions & churches of the Marais we will see the transition from medieval Gothic to renaissance Baroque architecture & discover the rich past (and present) of this picturesque & trendy neighbourhood.

Tempat yang akan Anda datangi

We will visit the hidden treasures of the Marais : medieval half-timbered houses, Gothic churches & cathedrals, Baroque mansions & squares. Hidden amongst the trendy boutiques are some of the city's oldest buildings - beautifully restored vestiges of the Middle Ages & Renaissance.
I explain the history & architecture of these buildings to provide context. I share the rich past of the Marais (as well as a few insider shopping addresses).

Ellen graciously kept our appointment even though I was the only person attending. She also kindly went overtime on our appointment which was much appreciated. Highly recommended for first time visitors to Marais to orient yourself and gain an understanding of the history of the area. I had lunch at A great deli Ellen pointed out. Thanks for a lovely afternoon :)

Five stars because Ellen was so helpful and kind to us, even before our trip to Paris. She messaged and provided advice on restaurants, kid-friendly places, churches, etc. We took the tour on Christmas day and it was quite expensive for a walking tour, especially when many of the places we visited were closed due to the holiday. Things close on Christmas but I suppose I expected more or alternative places since the tour was still offered. No children's rate was given so we paid $229 for our family of four to see only the outside of most buildings.

Ellen has a deep knowledge of her topic and we were made aware of things that would have otherwise gone unnoticed. She also showed us a lovely tea French tea shop & consulted the group re tour preferences. Very worthwhile

Had a wonderful experience with Ellen! We were staying in the neighborhood and the tour helped us get acclimated and better understand the city’s history. Ellen is very knowledgeable and included many hidden gems I don’t think we would have discovered otherwise. Highly recommended!

Ellen is clearly an expert! Super passionate about history, I learned so much from her and all details felt very accessible (she takes the time to explain). You can tell that Ellen loves Paris, and you feel it too. If you’ve seen the main sights and just want to learn more about Paris, its architecture and its history, I would highly recommend!
