Full description
Throughout your 2-hour guided tour you will discover the dark side of the center of Paris. You will begin with the former main site of the bloody and popular public executions, which were both adored and appreciated by Parisians. You will see how cruelly they used to punish convicted criminals, as well as as the occasional unfortunate innocent person too.

Paris is a haunted city with plenty of ghosts and phantoms. One famous French poet became the ghost that today haunts a theater, another one was injured during a fire and has since never left the Opera House. You'll learn about the "evil queen" of France, and how another spirit haunted her all the way up until her final days.

Demons and devilish beings are everywhere in Paris, with the Notre-Dame Cathedral containing plenty of them on its exterior. On this facade there are so many creepy and mysterious signs and symbols, which require a thorough investigation to properly appreciate it.

You will learn how a gypsy cursed a house in the Latin Quarter, causing its owner to die. This was followed by more people mysteriously dying there. You'll hear the spine-chilling story about this most famous cursed Parisian place, before your chilling tour finishes at the meeting point with the story of a vampire.
