Forget everything you know about the French Revolution. You'll be taken far beyond just names and dates by leading you on an extraordinary journey through alleyways, churches, cafes. This is history you can see and touch, imagining yourself there in the thick of history’s most turbulent and terrifying upheaval while you walk through the neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés with our guide-storyteller.
Find out about the extravagances of Louis XVI and his queen Marie Antoinette. You’ll then follow their downward spiral from their imprisonment in Paris, to their attempted secret escape, to their fateful moments beneath the glistening blade of the guillotine. Speaking of the “National Razor”, find out where it was invented and explain just how effective a killing machine it was—“Heads flying like roof shingles in a hurricane,” according to one witness!
After a complimentary café break to take a breather, you’ll continue along an itinerary packed with surprising objects that lurk in the shadows of the picturesque Saint-Germain-des-Prés district.
