Paris Walking Tours on the 4th July


This morning Pierre run two Walking Tours in Paris, one on the hill of Montmartre and the other in the classy neighbourhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris. Fortunately both tours took place in the morning as we are experiencing a remarkable heatwave in Paris and France. Pierre was delighted to lead the way to an Australian family from Sydney, Australia and two ladies from England.

Of course I do not have time to take photos during the tours as I am too busy leading the way through the streets of Paris… However it is always a good thing to arrive early to ‘identify the land’ – ‘repérer le terrain’ as we say in French.

Here are a few photos taken on that day… If you would like to enrol into a walking tour, do not hesitate to contact us.

Later this morning I reached the Left Bank with métro line 4 to reach St. Germain in time for the second walking tour. In Saint-Germain-des-Prés we walked through a particular street with ancient townhouses and discovered a ‘secret courtyard’. Do you have any idea where this is?
