What You'll Do
  • See the history of France and the French Revolution, where it happened, in actual size!
  • Rediscover an iconic Parisian neighborhood with a new perspective on history
  • Hear a wide variety of stories for a dynamic and accessible experience
The French Revolution started on Paris's eastern outskirts, especially Saint Antoine, just a stone's throw away from the Bastille and the aristocratic mansions of the Marais.
What to Expect
A neighbourhood where craftspeople, particularly cabinet makers, lived and worked from the Middle Ages onwards, these narrow, winding streets had been a favorable location for protesters to set up barricades throughout their history. This urban exploration guide will offer you the chance to rediscover these iconic Parisian neighborhoods, from the Place de la Bastille to the Saint Gervais district, from the Marais to the Arsenal, from the historical perspective of the Revolution.

You'll discover the secrets of this imposing fortress, which was built by Charles V, and the mysterious "lettres de cachet," the sealed letters that contained the King's orders. You'll walk the streets in the footsteps of the "sans culottes," - the lower class revolutionaries - as they asserted their claim for justice against King Louis XVI.

You'll hear so many stories that will give you a better insight into this troubled period which gave rise to and defined the French Republic.
