Itinerary

Stop at: Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel

The Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel (firmly anchored to the tradition of the ancient triumphal arches) was built by Percier and Fontaine in circa 1806 to 1808 to celebrate the Napoleonic victories of 1805, and it was originally intended as a monumental entrance to the Tuileries Palace. 

When that palace was destroyed by fire in 1871, it was generally agreed that the arch stood well on its own; nor was the palace greatly missed in that an exceptional view of the Champs-Elysées had been opened up.

Stop at: Pavillon de la trémoille

The southern limb of the New Louvre consists (from east to west) of five great pavilions along the Quai François Mitterrand (and Seine bank): the Pavillon de la Lesdiguieres, Pavillon des Sessions, Pavillon de la Tremoille, Pavillon des États and Pavillon de Flore.

Stop at: Pont des Arts

The Pont des Arts bridge is one of the most famous bridges in Paris. It was built between 1802 and 1804, under the empire of Napoleon L. Crossing over the River Seine, it links the 'Institut de France' and the 'Palais du Louvre' – known as the 'Palais des Arts' two centuries ago.

Stop at: Laduree le Bar

The history of Parisian tea rooms is intimately tied to the history of the Ladurée family. It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a man from France's southwest, created a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale.

Stop at: Café de Flore

“It was a mirrored place of entrances and encounters.” And it's been that way pretty much since the day the Flore opened its doors. Founded during the Third Republic in 1887, the café was named after a sculpture of Flora, the goddess of flowers and spring, which lived on the opposite side of the boulevard.

Stop at: Les Deux Magots

The name of the café “Les Deux Magots” (i.e. “two Chinese figurines”) comes from a novelty shop that once occupied the same premises. Founded in 1812 at 23 Rue de Buci, it was transferred to Place St-Germain-des-Prés to expand in 1873. 

The two statues that adorn the café now stand as witnesses to that era. Here you will have to look around to find the answer to our challenge to advance to the new location and learn the story of this place.

Stop at: Saint-Germain-des-Pres

The abbey church remains as the Église de Saint-Germain-des-Prés, one of the oldest churches in Paris. In 542, while making war in Spain, Childebert raised his siege of Zaragoza when he heard that the inhabitants had placed themselves under the protection of the martyr Saint Vincent.

Stop at: Le Procope

Procope was first founded back in 1686 when Francesco Procopio dei Coltelli, who was originally from Palermo, Sicily, decided to open up a coffee house on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain, which is where this restaurant in Paris is still located.

Stop at: La Fontaine Saint Michel restaurant

It is a monumental fountain located in Place Saint-Michel in the 6th arrondissement in Paris. It was constructed in 1858–1860 during the French Second Empire by the architect Gabriel Davioud. It has been listed since 1926 as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture.
