La Bastille avec Paul

Nous sommes allés en famille (3générations) pour la visite de la Bastille avec paul et nous avons été passionnés par son exposé et par l'étendue de ses connaissances .
il sait captiver son auditoire et parler avec beaucoup de gentillesse aux grands comme aux petits .
il nous a donné l'envie de recommencer et de nous intéresser à l'histoire de France.
bravo à Paul c'était fabuleux
