Paris Walk

  Paris by arrondissement: The 2nd

From John the Fearless’s 15th-century tower to the elegant Place des Victoires built in honor of Louis XIV to the lovely covered passages of the 19th century to early 20th-century industrial buildings, explore this arrondissement packed with history and see how it has changed over time. Find out the history of people like Etienne Marcel and the Countess of Berry. Discover where the city walls once stood. See where diligences and stagecoaches stopped. See some of the oldest restaurants in Paris and Louis XV’s favorite pastry shop. This walk is packed with surprises. Those who wish may join us for lunch after the tour.
