About the tour

Discover how Parisian buildings evolved through the centuries. Paris has perhaps the most wondrous assemblage of architecture and urban landscape in the world. In this tour, we will explore the preserved neighborhoods of Saint Paul and the Marais to witness the diversity of styles that different periods brought to the capital of France. From the half-timbered houses of the Middle Age to the contemporary constructions, from the Gothic style to classicism, from the aristocratic private mansions of the 17th century to the great renovation of Paris started in the 1850’s with the Haussmanian style, you will discover a wide array of architectures that is certainly at the origin of the charm of the city. Follow your guide for a journey through the ages thanks to a detailed explanation of Paris architectures!

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.
