Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle tour with a private guide
The heart of Paris has beat for more than 2, 000 years protected by the Seine. Île de la Cité, was home to Parisii, Romans, kings, revolutionaries, romantics—all with stories to tell. Let me be their voice, as we explore the original Paris.
We will visit Notre Dame Cathedral, halting in its Gothic beauty. Built in the 12th century, its construction spanned some 200 years. Despite its imposing presence, visitors marvel at its serene inner beauty. Under the watchful eyes of gargoyles perched overhead on spires that pierce the sky, you will find worshipers within--an ancient cathedral still vital today.
Follow me to the palace courtyard and the magnificent Sainte-Chapelle. Built to protect relics of the Crucifixion, you will be dazzled by spectacular 13th century stained glass images of Bible verses. Imagine King Louis IX, protector of the relics, bowed in prayer as we visit the upper chapel.
Come with me to Île de la Cité and experience the essence of the past, alive in the present.
