What Will You Do

We walk from the meeting point till Place des Vosges. The Place des Vosges is one of the oldest squares in Paris, and also one of the most beautiful. Visitors stroll under the arches or along the paths of the central garden, taking time to admire the beautiful facades of red brick. Shops, open on Sundays contribute to the liveliness of the spot. The square is the ideal departure point for a walk in the Marais, one of the most charming historic neighbourhoods in the capital, with its rich heritage and special atmosphere. The many mansions of the 17th and 18th centuries have been transformed into internationally renowned museums

The Hotel de Sully is also known as the Hotel de Bethune-Sully which was originally built as a private mansion house in the 1600s, then over 250 years later it was listed as an historical monument in Paris in 1862, and is well worth visiting this building with its incredible architecture that you will be able to admire when you are walking around the city near the Place des Vosges.

This townhouse was a development commissioned by King Henry IV of France and overseen by Maximilien de Béthune, Duke of Sully (1559-1641). The Duke bought the residence in 1634. It stayed in the Sully family until the mid-18th century. Madame de Sévigné and Voltaire both stayed there.

It was bought by the French state and its restoration, which started in the 1950s, kick started the redevelopment of the entire district. The building has been used as the headquarters of the Centre des Monuments Nationaux since 1967.

The Rue des Rosiers, which means "street of the rosebushes," is a street in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, France. It begins at Rue Malher and proceeds northwest across Rue Pavée, Rue Ferdinand Duval, Rue des Écouffes, and Rue des Hospitalières Saint-Gervais. It is the epicentre of the Parisian Jewish community, is well worth discovering for its atmosphere, its shops and its restaurants. And with countless bars and clubs, the Marais is the biggest gay district in France. You will find the most famous Falafel shops of France like L'as du falafel in rue des rosiers.

In the middle of the old Paris, the Saint-Paul-Saint-Louis Church is a building steeped in history that you wouldn’t want to miss while strolling the Marais neighbourhood. This since 1887 listed historical monument has been entirely renovated in 2012 and has since then regained its former splendour.

Constructed between 1627 and 1641, this originally Jesuit church has been the first one in Paris to abandon the gothic style and adopt the baroque one. In 1762, when the Jesuit order was forbidden and banished, the church was entrusted to some clergymen of the neighbourhood.

But with the French Revolution, the church was used as a storehouse, as most of the big religious monuments of Paris, and part of its treasures destroyed or stolen. A bustling history that the architect Victor Baltard will have to restore during the 19th century.

Located in the heart of the historic Marais district in Paris, the Shoah Memorial offers visitors many resources and activities in a total surface area of nearly 5,000 square meters.

We will see this famous memorial from outside.
It is well know for it's wall of Names.
Engraved on this wall are the names of 76,000 Jews, including 11,000 children, who were deported from France, with the Vichy government’s collaboration, as part of the Nazi plan to destroy the Jews of Europe. Most were murdered at Auschwitz-Birkenau, the rest at the Sobibor, Lublin, Majdanek and Kaunas/Reval camps, between 1942 and 1944.

Only 2,500 survived. This wall gives back their identity to the children, women and men the Nazis tried to eradicate from the face of the Earth. Their names engraved in stone ensure that they will not be forgotten.

The Hôtel de Ville de Paris has been the seat of the Paris City Council since 1357. The current building, with a neo-renaissance style, was built by architects Théodore Ballu and Edouard Deperthes on the site of the former Hôtel de Ville which burnt down during the Paris Commune in 1871. Visits to the town hall, a powerful and prestigious place, are possible. Guided tours are offered by reservation only and are organized by the city’s Protocol Department. Visitors can discover the function room, created as a replica of the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. Free major exhibitions are also organized here and are a great success.

We take metro from Hotel de ville till the station of Gare du Nord. Your guide will buy your metro ticket. Once you reach the Gare du Nord, it's a ten minutes walk to the indian restaurant where we have booked a fixed menu for you for an amazing Végétarian Indian Lunch. Drinks are not included. The guide accompanies you till the restaurant and says goodbye to you.

The Gare du Nord railway station in Paris is the busiest station in Europe and the third largest and busiest in the world.

The station has the capacity to handle 700,000 passengers and 2,200 train movements a day and is regarded as the second biggest station in terms of passenger capacity.

The original Gare du Nord was designed by Léonce Reynaud and constructed by Bridge and Roadway Engineers.

The old railway station was demolished in 1860 and the construction of the new station was carried out until 1865. It opened in 1864, however, while construction work was still taking place.
