It’s the perfect place to stock up on Christmas gifts and sip a warming hot wine. The markets embody everything that’s special about Christmas – its traditions and the festive spirit.

Medieval Paris Tour: Notre Dame Cathedral and Sainte Chapelle

Our partner guide will take the customers through the heart of a Medieval Paris as they visit two icons of Medieval architecture: Sainte Chapelle and Notre Dame Cathedral.

The guide will meet the guests on Ile de la Cité, near the equestrian statue of Charlemagne in front of Notre Dame Cathedral, where the tour will leave at 2:00 p.m.

The tour will begin with a guided visit of the Notre Dame Cathedral to discover its history and mysteries. Built between the 12th and the 14th century, Paris’s iconic Cathedral was made famous by the coronation of Napoleon I in 1804. To begin, the guide will explain the significance of the exterior façade. The western facade looking out on the church square gives the church an imposing appearance, which has captivated contemporary art and architecture specialists. The façade displays many symbols related to the Virgin Mary. It includes three large portals: a central portal called the Portal of Judgment incarnates the Final Judgment; to the right, a Mother and Child in Romanesque style are depicted on the Sainte-Anne Portal; the Portal of the Virgin, on the left of the monument, recounts the death of Mary and the coronation. Victor Hugo popularized the Cathedral in his literary works, including the archetypal “Hunchback of Notre Dame.”The visit will then continue inside the edifice, where light seems to burst through the stained-glass windows, giving the Cathedral a spiritual dimension. Admire its three sizable, magnificent rose windows. The west-facing rose window is located on the western facade. The south-facing rose
