    Itinerary
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Metro Palais Royal - Musee Du Louvre, 1 Place Colette, 75001 Paris France

    Our off-the-beaten track itinerary will include the Palais Royal, some of the most beautiful Parisian 19th Century Covered Passages, and a walk through the little known 9th arrondissement.

    Pass By: Place Pigalle, 75009 Paris France

    Your tour will finish at the sulphurous Pigalle red-district area, where you will stop for a cocktail at an elegant former brothel. If you haven’t had enough, feel free to explore further with a visit to the bohemian Montmartre district.

    Amazing discovery of Paris. I loved understanding the secrets of scandalous Paris, the sharply mastered anecdotes that Ana, our guide, told us. Special mention to the end of the visit (but I keep the surprise).
