Discover Gothic architecture jewels in Paris with a Private Guide


Are you passionate about history and the Middle-Ages? Do you wanna know more about the gothic style and architecture? Then discover Medieval Paris with a history and art expert!

During my tour you will learn the history and legends of the world's most famous gothic cathedral Notre-Dame de Paris. You will be astounded by the incredible combination of light and color in the Sainte-Chapelle's stained glass windows, noticing the difference between the rayonnnant gothic of the Sainte-Chapelle and the flamboyant gothic of the Saint-Severin church. You will walk the halls of Paris' oldest royal palace and visit Marie-Antoinette's cell in the Conciergerie.

Itinerary

During the tour, we will discover major Gothic monuments of Paris: Notre-Dame de Paris (from outside), the Conciergerie and the Sainte-Chapelle. All three are located on the Ile de la Cite in the historical heart of the city just a hundred meters one from another. You will also visit the medieval church of Saint-Severin, a great example of the flamboyant gothic style.

Aside from the story of the hunchback, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame impresses its visitors because of its refined architecture, statues, gargoyles and flying-butresses. After admiring the facade of Notre-Dame, we will visit the XV century church of Saint-Severin and the XIII century Sainte-Chapelle skipping the long line at its entrance. At the end of the tour, we will discover the nearby Conciergerie. At first, the residence of the French kings, centuries before the Louvre or Versailles, the Conciergerie was later turned into a terrible prison, where Queen Marie-Antoinette and hundreds of prisoners spent their last days before the guillotine.

A Recent Review of this tour

We would rate her 5 out of 5! Oxana was engaging, informative and easy going in explaining the history (key events, art and architecture) of Notre Dame, St. Chapelle, the Conciergerie, the Latin Quarter, St. Germain and Montmartre and Sacre' Coeur. We would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to see Paris is a few days.
