Today in France, Paris is the City of Love, the home of fashion and the centerpiece of art and culture, but it wasn’t always like that.
France, and Paris in specific, have a lengthy, tragic history of assassination and execution, lower-class widespread illness, and bitter wars fought against a corrupt monarchy. Our Dark Heart of Paris Tour takes tourists on a trip across this city’s other hand-the City of Love’s scarcely seen underbelly.
The tour takes place under a dark cloak, winding down streets and cutting through the night’s hushed silence. Following your English-speaking guide, you will go to the sites of some of the darkest hours in Paris-the Place de la Vert Gallant where the last of the Templar Knights was burned on the stake; St. Germain de Auxerrois where, according to some estimates, 30,000 people were killed in the massacre on St. Bartholomew’s Day in 1572; and the Palais du Justice, where those found guilty by the court were routinely tortured and tortured.
Your guide will point out areas of interest as you walk, filling in the complete information of Paris ‘ gruesome history. No stone is going to go unturned as you go into the city’s dark core. Beginning in early Paris with ritual worship, you will travel through generations wracked by the plague, the French Revolution, the Paris Commune, and the Nazi rule. You’ll learn about the personalities that shaped the town, from Napoleon to Mari Antoinette, Henry IV, and the serial killers that hunted those very streets once.
The Dark Heart tour of Paris offers a rare opportunity to see a side of Paris that you won’t see on postcards advertised. An opportunity to know more about the City of Love and those who loved, hated, died and killed there.
