A choice of several visits based on the detective world and the dark history of Paris:
- Le Paris Policier (Ile de la Cité)
In search of its secrets, explore the Ile de la Cité: where it all began.
From the political police to public security, the judicial and police apparatus was born at the same time as society and the State.
A walk that will allow us to evoke the history of the police and some famous cases. This investigation will lead you to the places of torture, imprisonment, judgments, executions, investigators and criminals from the Middle Ages to the 20th century.
RDV : Pont Neuf 75001 Paris
- The Paris of the Brigands (Marais-Temple)
On the trail of the Parisian brigands. Crimes and misdemeanours at all costs! In the Temple and Marais districts.
An alibi to visit Paris differently: Discover the picturesque alleys and majestic mansions of the Temple and Marais districts, another area full of crime.
In a society based on power and money, criminals have hardly had the "means" to waste time earning it honestly for centuries.
Still thinking that "money is the false currency of happiness", according to the Goncourt's chosen phrase, they defy the ban.
From the Place de Grève, the place of capital executions from the Middle Ages to the Empire, to the Place de la République, we will evoke plots, homicides, holdups, forgers and counterfeiters.
RDV : Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, 75004 Paris
- The Paris Murderers (Latin Quarter)
Revolution and the science of crime! Discover the heart of the legendary Latin Quarter.
From the Place de l'Estrapade, the place of execution, to the workshop of the menacing guillotine, the quarter has many secrets to reveal.
During this walk through the learned quarter, we will evoke the history of criminology. To fight crime, science has been at the service of crime since the 19th century!
Full of miscellaneous events, including serial murders, homicides and conspiracies, this visit allows us to discover the ancient Paris in a different way!
RDV : Place Henri Mondor 75006 Paris
- The Paris Assassin (Secrets and criminal enigmas)
Take a walk in another murderous district of the capital. A commercial district since the 12th century due to the establishment of the market desired by the king, this district was not only the economic lung of the city.
Some famous places of execution, such as the pillory and the Châtelet, which have now disappeared, and a few steps away, the Place de Grève, which recalls the memory of infamous justice, bear witness to this.
Known for hosting the largest market in the capital, which Emile Zola called "the Belly of Paris", it is also the world of hiring and debauchery where banditry and the crime syndicate are organised.
Next to it, the cemetery of the Innocents, an astonishing place of rendezvous and mystery which until 1780 welcomed Parisians to their final resting place.
"Notre Dame des Halles", also known as Saint Eustache, still watches over the secrets of this district, which is full of events such as regicide, murder, hold-ups and burglaries...
RDV : At the foot of the Innocents fountain Place Joachim du Bellay - Metro Châtelet (exit Place Sainte Opportune)
- The Paris of the Great War
An invitation to discover Paris a hundred years earlier!
From the Hôtel des Invalides to the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, revisit the Paris of the Great War!
During a 2-hour walk, you will be presented with some of the major events that marked Paris from 1914 to 1918.
Far from the fighting and the nightmarish scenes on the front line, "the front", this visit allows us to evoke "the back". The life of the Parisians and the poilus, in transit, wounded, on leave during these four years of chaos.
The places visited lead to the narration of certain subjects of the Great War such as the taxis of the Marne, the arrest of Mata Hari, the choice of the unknown soldier, the bombardments, the work and leisure of the Parisians...
Punctuated by anecdotes, this unusual walk also allows you to rediscover the architectural riches of one of the most prestigious districts of Paris.
RDV : Place des Invalides, 75007 Paris
