Just saying the name of this timeless city brings a flood of images rushing to your mind: the Eiffel Tower, the Mona Lisa, the Arc de Triomphe, the people, the fashion …
If you have had the good fortune to visit Paris, the memories undoubtedly bring a smile to your face. But we’re not here just to see the sights. We peel back the layers of the city to get an understanding of the characters and the stories that transformed the city from a small island for fishermen into one of the world’s most visited cities. We meet the people, climb the structures, explore the tunnels and get up close and personal with the art to gain a real understanding of what has developed the city throughout the centuries, and exactly what Paris means to the world today.
Follow the footsteps of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette through the Chateau de Versailles, listen to the theories and decide for yourself what made the Mona Lisa smile, and bring out your revolutionary side in the city that has revolution at its very core.
