Right Bank Landmarks: an Open Air Museum

Since middle-ages, people consider the city of Paris is comparable to a human body: the Left Bank, traditionally famous for the university and the abbeys, is the brain; the Right Bank, renown for the economy and the places of power, represents the legs, helping the city to walk and work.


The centre of the Right Bank gathers such a concentration of famous buildings an can be explored in few hours. Each square, each monument has its story, but they also are a properly staging of different regimes.

From what age is the tour recommended?

This tour is easy to follow for children, it is a good way to discover the essential monuments and stories of the Right Bank, while walking outside. I recommend this tour from 6 years old.


How long is the tour?

If you need a short version (family tours or just because you prefer), 2.5 hours is the minimum to appreciate this visit. If you want to see everything, a 4 hours tour is highly valued to go beyond the Louvre museum and walk to: the Opera house, the Halles forum, a nice covered passage, and Ste Eustache church.

No, the tour happens rain or shine. Everything is outside, so no timetable to follow.


Is there a lot of walk?

The tour is between 2.5 and 4.5 miles long. Breaks are possible on the way. 


Is this visit wheelchair accesible ?

Yes, the tour is wheelchair accessible.
