Description

Why did the French Revolution happen, and what were its effects? Join our Expert Guide on this original history tour to witness the revolt, liberation, and the birth of a new era of democracy in Paris! Discover key facts, the timeline of events and people who shaped the history of France. Hear the true story of Marie Antoinette and Les Misérables! Take our 2-hour French Revolution Tour to explore the landmarks and stories of passion, ideals, and struggles of a nation in upheaval during a pivotal moment in French history. We begin our exploration at Place de la Bastille, where the storming of the Bastille prison marked the symbolic start of the French Revolution. We’ll follow in the footsteps of French revolutionaries through the Marais district, which during the 17th and 18th centuries was inhabited mostly by aristocrats, who abandoned their fashionable mansions as the key events unfolded amidst the fervor of revolutionary ideals. We’ll pass not far away from the former residence of Victor Hugo, whose best-selling novel Les Misérables was set in the midst of this tumultuous era. Another place of interest will be Hôtel de Ville, which was the focus of numerous popular uprisings, and where guillotine executions were held. We’ll also learn about the change in the relationship between the church and the state as we pass Tour Saint-Jaques, the remains of a church that was destroyed during the Revolution. We’ll walk across Pont au Change, which was featured in the novel Les Miserables, and head to Ile de la Cite - the birthplace of Paris. Here, we’ll learn about the last days of Queen Marie Antoinotte, who awaited her trial in Conciergerie.
