Let's discover the most mind-blowing sights of Paris!
Did you ever wonder when Paris became the navel of the world? It was in the Golden Age of the city, the 19th Century. Let's travel in time and discover the most impressive face of the City of Lights!
At that time, VIPs from all over Europe particularly enjoyed one district: Les Grands Boulevards, elegant and entertaining at once. Let's stroll there together, joining 19th-century aristocrats, bankers, artists, and courtesans.
We will meet them walking from the Royal Palace Gardens through iconic and beautiful Parisian arcades to the marvelous Opera House that we will visit inside in a comfortable skip-the-line mode. It was for the elites the equivalent of social media of today. The courtesans strolled between the gilded columns of the foyer, counting on a lucrative meeting with the richest men of that time! It inspired the Phantom of the Opera story and recently "Ballerina" cartoon. The tour will end with a panoramic view of Paris from the famous Galerie Lafayette.
We will visit together different sites, as follows:
- Royal Palace hidden gardens
- A few 19th Century arcades of Paris
- Garnier Opera House - an inside tour
- An elegant 19th Century bank
- Galerie Lafayette
Please note that Opera House requiries a prior reservation, which has to be done at least 2 working days before the tour. The visit of the Opera House inside depends on this booking availability.
