Full description
Some of the greatest artists and writers of the 19th and 20th centuries were attracted to the winding streets and bustling boulevards of Paris's Left Bank.

From historic Paris along the Seine, to the bustling grand boulevards, the cafés, the old squares and the artist studios, this guided walk links some of the world's most beloved masterpieces with the locations where they came to life.

On this fascinating 2-hour walking tour with an expert local guide you’ll hear the details of the lives of the famous artists and writers that lived and worked in Paris.

Travel back in time to the sizzling Paris of the 1920s, when Hemingway sipped absinthe at Les Deux Magots and Picasso dined on choucroute garnie at La Rotonde. Visit literary cafés where Jean Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Faulkner, Camus, Hemingway, and Fitzgerald rubbed shoulders.
