OUR USUAL WINTER PROGRAMME which we hope to continue to offer
The Marais Circuit 1 10.30am This is the most unspoilt historic quarter in Paris. This circuit explores the south Marais. Beautiful architecture from picturesque medieval streets to splendid classical mansions, and the lovely royal square, the place des Vosges. We look at architecture, history, some Jewish history, hear stories of the famous inhabitants such as Victor Hugo and Mme de Sevigné, celebrated for her witty letters. Meet at metro St Paul
The Village of Montmartre 10.30am On this picturesque walk you will discover a delightful neighbourhood with old winding streets, the vineyard, artists' studios (Renoir, Lautrec, Van Gogh) quiet gardens, historic cabarets, the place-du-Tertre with its artists and the Sacré Coeur Basilica. Meet at metro Abbesses (use the elevator, the station is deep!)
Hemingway's Paris 10.30am Explore this charming district in the Latin Quarter with the old houses and courtyards of the Mouffetard market street, a hidden fragment of the medieval city wall, and the lovely historic church of St Etienne-du-Mont. It is associated with many writers: Joyce, Orwell, Balzac, Hugo, Verlaine. The area was immortalised by Hemingway in A Moveable Feast and by Woody Allen in his film Midnight in Paris.
