Full description
Go on a journey into the heart of Paris at its most mysterious, and explore the dark side of a city better known for its illuminations. 

Your guide will explain to you the mysteries that surround this imposing Notre-Dame Cathedral. Pass along a narrow street where a scary story of medieval blood and ink will be revealed. Then, near the Place Sainte-Opportune, you will discover the narrow and dark rue Courtalon, where once, in the time of Louis XIV, a dark affair took place. Facing Saint-Jacques Tower, discover how reality beats fiction, and in the heart of Rue de la Ferronnerie, learn how “Le Vert Gallant” died.

Your guide will tell you about the astrological and astronomical tower of the Black Queen, where the magician at the service of Catherine de Medici practiced black magic inside this tower.
