Don't miss a walking tour of the lovely Montmartre hill. Topped by the bright white Sacre-Coeur basilica it is, with its 130 meters, the highest hill of Paris. Rural until the mid XIXth century, the little village of Montmartre became famous with the arrival of penniless artist such as Monet, Van Gogh, Modigliani or Pablo Picasso. Steep streets, the Moulin Rouge, the Moulin de la Galette, Place du Tertre or splendid Paris views give to Montmartre a unique and subtle atmosphere which sets it apart in Paris.

The Marais is one of Paris oldest and most dazzling quarters. From an unpleasant swamp or " marais" it became a fashionable, aristocratic area and royal favorite from the 14th to the 17th century. Le Marais was not included in the huge transformation/modernization of Paris that took place during the second half of the XIXth century. That's why this eastern part of Paris has a much different flavor. Its dramatic residences (hotels), artisanals boutiques, galleries, lavish squares, and fascinating history are worth reserving at least a half-day of exploration for.

In the heart of Paris, the Ile de la Cite (City island) is where the whole origin of the city takes place. It has been inhabited for over 2000 years, starting with a Celtic tribe, the Parisii. As the religious and political heart of France for centuries, Ile de la Cite features splendid sights. It is worth taking a walk from the old Pont Neuf, through peaceful Place Dauphine, along the Conciergerie prison (where Marie-Antoinette spent the last 40 days of her life before being beheaded) and the flower market before reaching Notre-Dame. We will visit the Parisian cathedral Notre Dame, jewel of gothic art. If you are looking for a village in the heart of Paris, you will find one of the Ile Saint Louis. No avenue to cross, no metro stations. The whole island is a monument itself with its amazing private mansions from the XVIIth century.
