GOURMET MARAIS | Walking Tour

GOURMET MARAIS

Walking Tour

DESCRIPTION :

Join a local guide to explore the medieval heart of Paris, the Marais, and combine history, food and wine, a winning combo! The tour guide will wait for you in front of Notre-Dame Cathedral by the statue of Charlemagne. Hear about the history of this Parisian highlight before moving to the Hôtel de Ville, the city’s town hall, the square where public executions & torture were once carried out. Hear about the horrible death of Damiens, the infamous man who tried to assassinate the king. Off it goes through the impressive Saint-Gervais church, our entrance gate into the little tangled streets of the Marais, full of corbelled houses, narrow lanes and tucked away aristocratic mansions. After passing by an iconic bakery whose baguette was elected the second best in Paris, we’ll try our first pastry, a delicious meringue and creamed based cake! Next, we’ll enter the centre of the French gay scene. You’ll learn how this part of city, still sordid not that long ago, became today the epitome of trendy Paris and the heart of local-designer’s shopping. Here we’ll try a macaron from one of France’s most famous pastry chefs! Just a street away is the heart of the Jewish community in Paris in a buzzing pedestrian lane full of delicious Eastern European delis and Mediterranean falafel stores. After tasting our third sweet treat, an incredibly rich and buttery specialty from Brittany, our tour will then take us to a local wine store, where we’ll get an amazing wine tasting. To pair our drinks, we’ll also get some platters of delicious French cheese & charcuterie. Before the end of our tour on Place de la Bastille, where the French Revolution was triggered, we’ll have a peek on what is possibly Paris’ most beautiful square: la Place des Vosges. The area around is full of cafes and restaurants, leaving you with plenty of options for your evening in the City of Lights!
