Arguably Paris's best-known church, the 12th-century cathedral of Notre Dame occupies a charming little island in the middle of the River Seine. This tour offers a fascinating look at the history of this Gothic masterpiece, which inspired the Victor Hugo novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame under the tutelage of a knowledgeable and passionate art historian.

What to Expect

The visit starts by reading the facade of the cathedral of Notre Dame which was conceived as an open book. Many great details can be discovered on each of them some related to the Virgin Mary and some others to the historical life of city of light. Considered  as one of the finest example of french gothic architecture, we will learn about this new architectural style and its main elements. Constructed in the 12th century, its location, the 'île de la cité', was once the shelter of the first inhabitants which makes it the symbol of the city and the background of a worldwide story the Hunchback of Notre Dame and his tragic love for Esmeralda. By the way this is the icing on the cake. Come and discover life in the middle ages, its architectural style and the symbolism behind its stained glass windows, gargoyles and chimeras. Let me tell you all about what happened during the French Revolution and World War II, its treasures and its most recent episode and turmoil.  

This tour is essential to know the birth of Paris and it is perfect for family with children.

Cinthia was absolutely outstanding. The tour was informative and very well presented. There were 4 of us aged 7-70 and she connected with everyone. I will make sure that on my return visits to Paris that I book her other tours.
