Full description
Join your guide for a fascinating walking tour of the charming and historical Ile de la Cite. Start your tour on the Left Bank in the Latin Quarter and pass by the famed bookstore, Shakespeare & Company, a gathering place for the literary legends of the 'Lost Generation'.
 
Then, see the imposing gothic structure of Notre Dame Cathedral. Built in the 13th century, this magnificent edifice has recently survived a devastating fire, yet she is still standing proudly as the symbol of the city. Learn of her incredible construction and watch history unfold before you, as she readies herself to stand tall for another eight centuries.
