Medieval Monarchs & Revolutionary Villains (History & Horrors for Kids)

Classic Paris Private Tours, Paris Private History Tours, Paris Private Tours for Children

Saint Louis’s beautiful Sainte Chapelle, an exquisite example of Rayonnant Gothic architecture, is famous for its luminous stained-glass windows and superb statuary. But little-known stories about the Crusader king – his adventures in reclaiming precious relics from Venetian pawnbrokers, his untimely death in Tunisia and the creative repatriation of his body to France, and more – are revealed in this fascinating tour. The nearby Conciergerie with its magnificent vaulting, once part of Louis IX’s elegant palace, morphed into a sinister prison centuries later during “La Terreur,” the reign of a tyrannical police state during the French Revolution.

Relive the darker side of history during this unforgettable 2-hour tour, which includes viewing Marie-Antoinette’s chapel.
