This nighttime walking tour of Paris’ ghosts, mysteries and legends takes place under a cloak of darkness, winding down alleyways and cutting through the hushed silence of the night. You will go to the sites of some of Paris’ darkest hours – the Place de la Vert Gallant, St Germain de Auxerrois (where some say 30,000 were killed in the St Bartholomew’s Day massacre in 1572) and the Palais du Justice (where those found guilty by the court were routinely tortured and executed before live audiences).
You will travel through areas wracked by the plague, the French Revolution, the Paris Commune and Nazi rule. You will learn about the characters that molded the city, from Napoleon and Marie Antoinette to Henry IV and the serial killers that once stalked these very streets.
The Ghosts, Mysteries and Legends Night Walking Tour of Paris offers a rare opportunity to glimpse a side of Paris you won’t see advertised on postcards. It’s a chance to learn a little more about the City of Light and those who loved, hated, died and killed there.

We loved the tour! We were the only two people in the Tour and the Guide was amazing and funny and he knew a lot of the city and it's history. We had a great interaction, we could ask questions and get extra information.
The Guide really made the tour and we had so much fun.
Thanks a lot to him!

This tour was the highlight of our Patis trip. We were suppose to be taking the tour at night however due to extreme rain the tour guide (Bennot) had allowed us to have the tour the following day kindly taking time out of his own schedule. We would definitely recommend this tour to all ages!Thanks!
