The tour begins with a walk through the Ile de la Cité, the heart of the city where Paris was founded. A natural island in the middle of the River Seine, the Ile de la Cité was once home to kings and was also the hub of world-changing political uprisings.
Your expert guide will fill you in on the gruesome history, revolutionary rivalries and romantic interludes of the Île de la Cité. Spot landmarks such as the Conciergerie, the last home (and prison) of Ms. Marie Antoinette.
You will next see the iconic Cathedral of Notre Dame from outside, the setting of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece, “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” Learn about the history of the majestic edifice. Hear the many fascinating stories held within the walls of Notre Dame and beautiful Gothic stonework. Learn all about the cathedral’s 200 years of construction from your guide.
You will then visit Sainte Chapelle, a former chapel of King Louis IX.

This Parisian gem is a major tourist magnet, but with this skip-the-line tour, you can simply skip the lengthy queues and spend more time enjoying this place.
After Sainte Chapelle tour, there is a break of 2 hours and 25 minutes, when you can grab a quick lunch and explore on your own before the next leg of the tour starts.
