I propose you to discover the old artisan and worker heart of Paris. A district born in the Middle Ages outside the walls of the town but which greatly contributed to forge its destiny. Here the history of Paris was written, not the History of kings and queens, but that of workers. Here won't admire the great monuments or the large boulevards, but small, old shops and narrow, twisted alleys. Come and discover the Paris you don't expect! We'll start our tour in Place de la Bastille, emblem of the French Revolution, where we will tell the true story and refute false myths. Then it's off for a 2-hour stroll through the heart of the Saint Antoine district and its secret passages. Small detour in the district of Aligre to visit its market and its ancient shops. We will end with a walk between Viaduc des Arts and Coulée Verte to admire the Made in Paris handicrafts and the rooftops from the top of a hanging garden.

The Faubourg Saint Antoine is a district that is not easily given to passers-by in a hurry, you have to take the time to enter the courtyards, take the small passages, stroll and be amazed. It is a fascinating and incredible story that of the Faubourg, a story of craftsmen and revolutions, which I invite you to discover using a quiz. The questions on your cell phone will help you find the small details and hidden passages yourself. Two versions are available: - for families, version suitable for a younger audience (from 10 years old) - for groups of friends or colleagues, version suitable for an adult audience (subsequent customization possible for companies, ask for a quote) Possibility to meet the artisans, visit the shops and / or book a "do it yourself" workshop.
