Île de la Cité: Self-Guided Audio Tour

Île de la Cité: Self-Guided Audio Tour

The Ile de la Cité is one of two natural islands in the Seine river in Paris, France. It’s located in the very center of Paris and is the historical heart of the city. Today, it’s a popular tourist destination, attracting millions of visitors each year to see its historic buildings, charming streets, and beautiful gardens. On this walking tour, you’ll discover that the area is so much more than a simple tourist destination. While you stroll along the island, I’ll reveal the city's origins from a small settlement along the Seine River to one of the most charming places within one of the most famous cities in the world. So much happened here! You’ll hear all of its tales, starting with the legend of love-lock bridge which is actually called Pont des Arts. I’ll also tell you about King Henri IV and the terrible demise of his murderer, the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, and Quasimoto and the city’s beloved Notre Dame Cathedral. I’ll show the island and all its sites, including the ones you didn’t even know about like Tour de l’Horloge, a public clock that was installed in 1418 and where the city’s very own Sweeney Todd lived in the 1430s. I’ll also point out Palais de Justice, Conciergerie Museum and Sainte-Chapelle. You’ll hear how the island was the site of the Roman city of Lutetia and how it became an important center of Paris. This is the perfect tour for Francophiles who want a taste of French history while enjoying a leisurely two-hour stroll along the heart of Paris.
