We are in Paris, one of the world’s most beautiful and attractive cities.
Throughout this itinerary, we imagine we are in the last decade of the 1700s, a period of significant social, political and cultural change, definitely not associated with peace and tranquillity. Yet, all around us, carriages, horses, cobblestones, vendors, merchants, and beggars were the frame of what was about to happen, precisely that fateful day in 1789.
To get a taste of the most significant places of the French Revolution and relive it centuries later, we start at the Royal Tennis Court in the Versailles district. It was here that the first autonomous meeting of the Third Estate took place. We retrace the events chronologically at the crucial locations during the events’ course.
This itinerary pass by the following suggested museums/sites (tickets below are not included within this tour):
Versailles is a beautiful and great location, we recommend, for those interested, to dedicate at least half a day (even a full day) to it. Once back in Paris, it will be possible to proceed with the itinerary over shorter distances.
