What you'll do

FAMILY WELCOME !
We will start by discovering the emblematic places of Poitiers, such as the Notre-Dame church, the Leclerc square or the Saint-Pierre cathedral. I will then guide you through the secret streets of Poitiers where you will discover unsuspected mansions but also alleys full of history. This active walk will be embellished with explanations on the exceptional urban planning of the city but also anecdotes unrecognized. Together we will weave through the maze of history and above all, the mystery surrounding the walls of our beautiful city!
Other things to note
The original visit of Poitiers is dedicated to all type of public, with, at least, the envy to learn and discover. This visit is accessible to children.

Where you'll be

Our visit will take place in the most beautiful religious buildings of the city (Notre-Dame ...) then the civil buildings, as the first university of Poitiers. We will also discover Renaissance mansions, very well hidden (Hôtel Fumé ...) in the small streets. Finally we will visit the Poitiers of the 19th century and its great architectural ensembles. These places help to understand the fascinating and unknown place history !

Merci Larry grâce à vous Radegonde n’a plus de secret pour nous. Vous avez fait preuve de beaucoup d’empathie, nos filles(18 ans et 8 ans) et nous mêmes avons été captivés. Je conseille vivement.
