Meet your knowledgeable art historian guide in central Paris. Then venture near the Notre-Dame Cathedral and learn the history behind the iconic Gothic structure, which sits on the site of the city’s original founding on the Île de la Cité. Stroll through the surrounding neighborhood of the Latin Quarter, and learn to recognize surviving symbols and architectural elements that date back to the Middle Ages.

See the illustrious Sorbonne, formerly the medieval University of Paris and one of the oldest colleges in Europe, as well as the Hotel de Cluny, once a 14th-century monastery and now home to the Museum of the Middle Ages. Admire the tower of the 16th-century Church of Saint-Jacques-de-la-Boucherie, and stand before the Fountain of the Innocents, the city’s oldest monumental fountain.

Learn about the layers of history that lie beneath modern-day landmarks like the Centre Pompidou and Les Halles, once the site of Paris’ central marketplace as early as the 12th century. Throughout the tour, ask all the questions you like to take advantage of your private guide’s knowledge and expertise.

Caroline was quite pleasant, engaging and informative. We learned about Medieval Paris, especially the years1100 - 1500. Caroline removed our misconceptions and clarified our understanding of Paris in this period. At the end of the tour she pointed out a lovely square at the end of the Ile de la Cite where we could have lunch and a glass of wine and even borrow pétanque balls from our waiter so we could play in the square. We enjoyed a rich 2 hours with Caroline!
