  • Description

    Learn about the Marais’ evolution through a mostly unexplored angle; hear stories about the settlement of the LGBTQI+ community here in the 1960s, and how this area evolved within time to become, nowadays, Paris’ exquisite center for fashion, luxury, and arts, with a guided walk that’ll bring you through all the main arteries of the “Gay Paris”.

    Meet your guide at metro St Paul, facing 12 Rue de Rivoli. After a quick meet and greet, your tour will start there.
    You'll get to explore the Marais and learn of its secrets and history, walking along the narrow streets as you take in the bubbly atmosphere of this area.

    An amazing interactive experience will be brought to you by your guide, sharing information, videos, and photos along the way, shared by your guide in real-time on the individual tablets that will have been distributed during the meet and greet!

    To conclude this tour in a celebratory fashion, a drink will be had at a local famous spot. First round's on us!

    Take in the warm-hearted atmosphere, discover beautiful hidden gardens - and not-so-hidden clubs - have a bite of some of the city’s best fresh produce in a 400-year-old market, and get to learn all there is to know about the most colorful center of the City of Lights!
