This shrine to French national heroes commemorates people like Marie Curie, Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Rousseau, Alexandre Dumas, André Malraux and Josephine Baker. I’ll point out the National Museum of Natural History, and you can stop off at the Cluny Museum, which brings together the lavish residence of the Abbot of Cluny, the city’s ancient Roman Baths and Alexandre du Sommerard’s priceless collection of medieval art. I’ll also tell you about: • Renowned entertainer, Josephine Bake, who put her life in danger to help France in its fight against Nazis • Marie Curie and why she wasn’t invited to teach at the Sorbonne until after her husband's death • The inventor of Braille, Louis Braille • Holocaust survivor Simone Veil who, as a politician, advocated in favour of the European Union By the end of the tour you’ll know where to find Rue Mouffetard, the city’s oldest market street, you’ll understand how a French oyster works and know why you should order a “tradition” instead of a baguette.

The most amazing experience with the wonderful Celine! Everyone was waving at us and taking photos of the car. Such a great day, filled with so much fun and sight seeing you can’t do in a bus or larger car. The personal touch of a tour is the best part and honestly Celine was wonderful and so knowledgeable!

A great fun activity for a beautify day with the roof rolled back. Thoroughly recommended. At times the car seemed to attract more interest than the main attractions!
