Experience

Highlights
  • See the Cour Carré, the oldest existing part of the Louvre
  • Discover Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois, the official church of the French kings
  • Walk along Rue Saint-Honoré, a chic yet unpretentious shopping area
  • Visit Galerie Vivienne, a 19th-century shopping mall
Full description
While the Left bank has always been associated with universities, the arts, youth culture, and free and forward thinking, the Right Bank was the seat of French power. Authority emanated from the royal court and had a significant impact on the character of its surroundings.

A 2-hour walk on the Right Bank is a very different experience compared to a visit to the Left Bank, which is home to the Latin Quarter and Saint-Germain.

As you take in the buildings of the Right Bank your guide will compare the way authority was shown in medieval times with the manner in which it was demonstrated in the neoclassical period.

You won’t only dwell on the official aspects of this area, however. You’ll also visit sites that have seen a change from their original purpose and acquired some interesting, unexpected functions and fame.

Principal sites visited on the tour include the Cour Carré, Saint-Germain-l'Auxerrois, Comédie-Française, Rue Saint-Honoré, Palais-Royal, Galerie Vivienne, Rue de Rivoli, Place Vendôme, and the Tuileries.
