Description

Description

Departure by coach from the Trocadero for Saint-Germain-des-Pres following the Voie Triomphale. We'll pass the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs Elysées and the Place de la Concorde - locations just bursting with history. Take some time to stroll through the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood and discover the history, architecture, art, and everyday life of these legendary sites that have come to symbolize Paris. Built up around the former Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, this neighborhood became the meeting place of intellectuals and philosophers, actors and musicians during the existentialist movement right after World War II. You can still sense the village-like ambiance in spots such as the street market on the rue de Buci. Closer to the Odeon, we'll discover many of the famous participants of the French Revolution, including Danton, Marat, and Dr. Guillotin. After our visit, we'll return to the ship by coach.
