Women-focused tours

Paris is a dazzling city full of history, where women, who often played a prominent part in it, were forgotten. Very few streets remind us of their essential role (less than 4%) and very few statues testify to their importance in the past.

This is why I decided to create guided tours based on female leading figures in Paris.

Traditional guided tours often talk about great men, like Napoleon or Louis XIV, but great women are often neglected, except for their negative sides.

Learn about these riveting characters who were writers, artists, scientists, role models, muses, mothers and wives, lovers, criminals, saints, revolutionaries and queens who deserve to be highlighted.

This is one of the reasons why we decided to create women-focused tours.

Let’s talk about lesser-told stories of inspirational women. A guided tour features the female’s role during the French Revolution. Discover the captivating women of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, the Marais, Montmartre, Versailles or in the golden triangle (tour called Luxury and Sensuality).

My favorite women-focused tours

Join me on one of my favourite tours about women. Go back in time to put yourself in the shoes of Parisian women during the French Revolution.

Learn much more about Marie-Antoinette following her steps at Versailles palace, the Petit Trianon and the Queen’s hamlet. Then continue the journey in Paris to admire her furniture at the Louvre, to see where she lived and died and where she was eventually buried.

Or visit in the outskirts of Paris, la Malmaison the splendid house where Napoleon and Josephine resided during the Consulate.
