Learn about the French Revolution in Paris on a 3-hour walking tour of sites most associated with the momentous events of the pivotal moment in French history, when the monarchy collapsed and aristocratic and religious privileges evaporated.
What to Expect
Learn about the French Revolution at sites where it happened on a 3-hour walking tour of Paris, and hear anecdotes that bring the event to life in a much more enjoyable way than school.
You will walk in the footsteps of the huge crowd of men, women and children, who bravely fought for their rights, some storming the Bastille with more than 30,000 weapons that they had stolen from Les Invalides.
Challenging royal authority in Paris, the demonstration led to the Declaration of Human and Civic Rights, and fundamental freedom for the nation, equality before the law and justice, and free sovereignty.
Among the sites you will see are the Tuileries Gardens of the Tuileries Palace, from where the royal family fled dressed as servants. Go to Les Invalides, now home to Napoleon’s tomb, and from where the revolutionaries secured their weapons. Visit the former Conciergerie, where Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI were kept prisoners, and Place de la Concorde, where the king was beheaded.
