The itinerary

Looking for more dates? Localers also offers here a Medieval Paris tour running outside the Christmas season!

Often called the cradle of Paris, the Île de la Cité was adopted as home by the Parisii tribe over 2,000 years ago and is thought of as the historical centre of Paris. Your tour begins with skip the line access to the dazzling Sainte-Chapelle, a masterpiece of medieval engineering with walls made entirely of stained glass. You’ll learn about the king behind this ambitious project, and the high-profile relic for which the chapel was built.

Next it’s the Conciergerie, a former royal palace and infamous prison that struck fear into the hearts of its detainees. You’ll see the sprawling vaulted ceilings of the Salle des Gens d’Armes, the world’s largest gothic hall and discover old prison cells, offering different levels of comfort according to the social status of the prisoner. The French Revolution also comes to life as you retrace Marie Antoinette’s fateful trip to the guillotine.

Finally, to really get you into the festive spirit there’ll be a visit to the Christmas market as the night falls and enjoy a traditional mulled wine or hot chocolate on us. Your guide will bid you farewell here, a chance to explore the market and get the last prezzies for the family!
