You will meet your guide at the Invalides, a military hospital and museum, and learn what the situation was at dawn, in Paris on July 14th, 1789. Then, stop at Place de la Concorde and learn how it was tragically transformed into a stage for the guillotine, a place where hundreds of people died. Be careful.
Through the Tuileries gardens and old Parisian streets, you will reach the Palais-Royal, where the fermentation of intellectual ideas prepared the popular uprising. Then you will come back temporarily to modern times and take a metro ride to make your way to the site La Bastille fortress.
Your guide’s lively commentaries will evoke the violence of the battle to get the prison’s gates opened and have the garrison surrender. To conclude this exciting 3-hour tour, you will have a complimentary drink with your guide while being told what was going on at Versailles the same day. In a friendly atmosphere.
