What you'll do

Let's discover the 2 fascinating sides of Paris History :
-on one side, the most important events that happened in Paris!
-on the other side, the small anecdotes that you don't find in the guidebooks!

And all of this in a limited group of 4 people Max!

The tour is a walk around the Louvre Museum : it starts from on Le Pont des Arts
and end in the Tuileries Gardens.

During the tour, I'll tell you about the main events that happened around us of course : Wars, massacre, Kings and Emperors, treasons, and Revolution are all on the menu!

But I'll also tell you about the small facts that make History funny and interesting.
And so you'll know what big animal was once running in the Louvre, why "Mona Lisa" is so famous, and why one of the symbol of the Louvre was a scandal!
We'll also talk about the missing part of the Louvre, that was maybe the most important!
And how a King showed his love to his Wife AND his mistress in the same time!
...and many many more!
Other things to note
Bring your camera if you want. Don't forget sunscreen if it's sunny. You can also bring some water. And wear comfortables shoes as we'll walk!

Stan was friendly and professional, well informed and passionate about his subject. He shared his knowledge in a comprehensive and easy to follow way that carried us along with his explanations through the eras, details and stories about the buildings and historic figures with entertaining anecdotes to make it more fun. My sister, brother and I along with our 83 year old Mum all really enjoyed it and learned so much . Thanks Stan.
