THE ESSENTIAL WOMEN OF PARIS
Starting at the Panthéon in Paris' Latin Quarter and ending at the Pont de la Tournelle, this walk will guide you through the charming streets of the famous Left Bank, passing landmarks such as the Panthéon, the Jardins de Luxembourg and the wonderfully chic Saint-Germain-des-Prés district - unravelling stories of incredible women at every turn. And of course, there will be a stop at one of the city’s finest bakeries somewhere along the way… we’re in Paris after all!
This tour reveals the lesser-told side of the city’s history; one dominated not by great men but by inspirational women, who persevered within a bastion of patriarchy to make their mark on Paris, and the world.
SUGAR & SPICE AND WOMEN WHO WRITE
This second walking tour aims to shed light on the lives and achievements of female writers in Paris. The walk features profiles of influential women writers and guides tourists through the city’s Left Bank where many of these women lived or are paid tribute to.
On top of that, the walk takes place around the glamorous Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, also known for its concentration of wonderful chocolatiers, patisseries and confectioneries. So, I have decided to combine two of my greatest passions: reading and eating! After all, doesn’t everyone come to Paris to be a bit of cultural and eat delicious treats?!
There will be tastings at famous spots such as Patrick Roger, Georges Larnicol and Meert, and goodness galore!
