  • Walking tour led by an English speaking guide
  • Both an enjoyable walking tour and an informative history lesson! Your guide will tell you fascinating facts about the French Revolution.


The French Revolution Walk will enlighten you to the significance of one of the most important events in modern history. Hear the gripping tales of the revolution from the overthrow of the monarchy to the guillotine.

Relive the troubled times leading up to the storming of the Bastille prison, the capture of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette and the Reign of Terror. Learn about Louis XVI - the proud king who lost his throne and his life and Marie Antoinette - the Austrian Queen who uttered the infamous phrase, "... then let them eat cake."


You will be picked up from outside the Les Invalides Métro station at 2:00pm and taken for a walking tour of the city. Accompanied by an English-speaking guide, see the following sites associated with the French Revolution:

Bastille Prison: The raiding of this prison on July 14th 1789 sparked the Revolution. Your guide will discuss the event from outside the building.

Les Invalides: The French army used to use this as an ammunition depot and it was from here that revolutionaries stole over 30,000 arms from here in order to attack the Bastille prison.

Conciergerie: See the prison overlooking the Seine River where Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVII were held. Over 2,500 prisoners from here went to the guillotine.

Tuileries Palace: Located in the current Tuileries Gardens, it also served as a prison for King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

Place de la Concorde: This was the site of the beheadings of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, among many others.

Assemblee Nationale: See the site of the lower house of the French Legislative branch.
