Lily Heise, creator of Je T'Aime, Me Neither,, knows Paris probably better than anyone! She has put together some special three-hour tours for our guests:

  • The Marais, from Marsh to Mansions: One of the oldest neighbourhoods of the city, the Marais is historically rich while being full of beauty and modern life. This tour traverses the district’s 1,000-year history, from its days as a marsh and farmland in the Middle Ages through its aristocratic golden age of the 16th and 17th centuries to its decline and revival over the 19th and 20th centuries. Along the way, we’ll discover historic mansions, pretty squares, secret gardens, and other hidden gems.
  • Montmartre, its Artists, Cabarets & Local Life: While most visitors to Paris only visit Sacré-Coeur and Place du Tertre, the backstreets of Montmartre exude the true character of the neighbourhood and reveal stories of its heyday as the artistic hub of the city at the turn of the 20th century. We'll take tiny alleys and narrow streets, stopping to see where artists like Van Gogh, Picasso, Modigliani and Renoir lived, painted and debated with their fellow artists.
  • Saint Germain and the Latin Quarter, the Heart of Intellectual Paris: This tour delves into the academic and intellectual centre of the city, taking quiet backstreets we'll see some of the oldest remaining sections of the city, discovering how the early days of the University of Paris and connecting institutions and monasteries influenced the development of the Left Bank of the city. This continued through the Enlightenment and Revolutions and eventually led the area to being the centre of cultural Paris in the 20th century, home to writers, artists, musicians and philosophers.
