A Royal Lifestyle of Palaces, Gardens and Shopping



Palais-Royal, Paris, France
30 mins

About the tour

The Royal Palace was the place to be in the seventeen and eighteen hundreds and we're about to see why! Not only is it an impressive building, but Florent will show us the magnificent and hidden gardens where the royals used to hide away from the common folk. What marks a royal lifestyle, and now a modern one, better than shopping? We'll see where the concept of modern shopping and restaurants was invented by walking through the ornate and architecturally marvellous Galerie Vivienne. The gallery is one of the last opened, covered passages and we'll see why it's authentically Parisian. We have it on good authority that you will also get to see some extremely large wine bottles!

Meet your local guide


It's an understatement to say Florent knows Paris. Born in this wonderful city, Florent says he confidently knows every nook and cranny. Having completed over 2000 tours, we believe him. He's a self declared history, art and archaeology buff. What he loves most is sharing the best parts (and dirty secrets) of Paris with you!

Florent has been guiding since Aug 2010

It's obvious that Florent loves his city of Paris and translates that in his tour. I loved visiting the Palais Royale and the park. The time went by too quickly.

I'm sure it was lovely, but after being connected about 5 minutes early the screen froze and I was never able to get back on.
