Paris: Ancien Regime to Revolution

Tour Introduction

The armed mob which stormed the Bastille in July 1789 not only unleashed one of the bloodiest periods in modern history, it brought an end to the Ancien Regime which had governed France for 500 years.

Anglia offers a range of tours to Paris with visits that can include:

  • The Palace of Versailles
  • The site of the Bastille
  • The Hotel de Ville, home of the Paris Commune
  • The Conciergerie, where Marie Antoinette spent her final days
  • The Place de la Concorde (formerly Place de la Revolution) where thousands met their grisly end under the blade of ‘Madame la Guillotine’.

With Les Invalides, the splendours of the Louvre and even a trip on the Seine, Paris offers a fascinating historical and cultural backdrop for any tour.
