Unusual: esoteric Paris

This walk follows the trail of the alchemists who left their lasting marks on numerous buildings and monuments in the very heart of the city.

Set off in the footsteps of the Parisian alchemists, the "gold makers" who, in their hidden laboratories bent over their manuscripts and stills, dedicated their lives to finding the secret to transmuting metals. This walk dwells mainly on Nicolas Flamel, the famous Parisian bourgeois, who reputedly solved the enigma of the philosopher's stone, an artefact that enabled the transformation of lead into gold and access to eternal life once diluted.  Look out for certain representations of Our Lady and the last column of the palace of Catherine de Médicis built by her strange astrologer. Nicolas Flamel's house is undoubtedly the oldest dwelling in Paris.

Discover things often not well known but nevertheless within the view of any observant walker. Open your eyes and put yourself in the hands of your city guide.

What you get from this experience :

- Through the original theme you will discover famous districts from a completely new angle
- A historic and cultural tour right in the heart of Paris
- A walk that follows the monuments of Paris accessible to all
