About the tour

Get ready to go back in time to discover Parisian royalty at The Royal Palace, one of the most famous landmarks in Paris. On this virtual tour with Florent, you’ll discover why it was the place to be in the 17th and 18th centuries. Located in the 1st arrondissement, the impressive Palais Royal is home to some of the most magnificent gardens in Paris. Interestingly, the royal palace has a fascinating story to tell. Despite its name, it was built by Cardinal Richelieu in 1633, before it was inherited by Louis XIII after his death. The Palais Royal is also close to some of the best museums in Paris. From the Louvre to the Tuileries Palace and the popular Musée d'Orsay, there are plenty of popular Parisian landmarks around the area. Florent’s virtual tour doesn’t just stop here. With your local Parisian guide, you’ll see how modern shopping and restaurants made their appearance back in the day by walking through the enchanting Galerie Vivienne. Located in the 2nd arrondissement, the Galerie Vivienne is one of the most iconic covered passages in Paris, booming with stores, cafes, and galleries. We’re sure you’ll love the 19th-century charm here!

Meet Florent


It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self-declared history, art, and archaeology fan. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and secrets) of Paris with you! “In French, if you add two letters to Paris, it becomes Paradis (Paradise in English)” he laughs. And paradise, it truly is. Be it exploring Paris' gastronomical delights or catching an auction, walking along the River Seine (which Florent gallantly swam), exploring spots where Hemingway lived or its sprawling gardens, Florent takes you on an exciting tour through his favorite city. “I love sharing my discoveries, explaining the boisterous history of Paris and showing places that are very hard to find otherwise, and of course getting to know new people every day!” Florent says.

Florent has a nice and well behaved attitude as a guide. Not so many "funny stories" and that's good. I'm satisfied.

I have rented apartments in the Palais Royal overlooking the gardens in the past. This was like being there all over again! What a lovely diversion!!
