Explore life in Paris 800 years ago on a guided tour of the most important medieval sites in the city, including the Hotel de Cluny, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Fountain of the Innocents. Your guide will tell you about the culture, art, and architecture of the Middle Ages while walking along Medieval streets to discover façades that retain their Medieval symbols.
Along the way, you'll visit the imposing Notre-Dame de Paris, the most important monument to Medieval Paris. Wander the Latin Quarter to see where the Medieval lives on today.
