What You'll Do
  • Explore the dark heart of Paris
  • Learn the black magic legends of the City of Lights
  • Hear the history of the magician Maître Albert de Cologne
  • Discover how The Green Gallant died
Discover the hidden heart of Paris on a 100-minute guided tour of the city’s secret stories. Step away from the usual tourist tales, and dive down narrow lanes around the Notre-Dame, follow in the footsteps of a legendary magician, and much more.
What to Expect
Go on a journey into the heart of Paris at its most mysterious, and explore the dark side of a city better known for its illuminations. Mixing legends and black magic, the tour reveals the secrets of the City of Lights.

Start at Place Maubert and follow in the footsteps of the magician Maître Albert de Cologne. Then, go to Notre-Dame Cathedral to learn the mysteries that surround this imposing cathedral. Pass along a narrow street where a scary story of medieval blood and ink will be revealed. Facing Saint-Jacques Tower, discover how reality beats fiction, and in the heart of Rue de la Ferronnerie, learn how “Le Vert Gallant” died.

Your guide will tell you about the Holy Innocents’ Cemetery and its continuous frieze of macabre art, and end at the astrological and astronomical tower of the Black Queen, where the magician at the service of Catherine de Medici practiced black magic inside this tower.
