« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Take a tour of Paris, the city founded 2,000 years ago when the ancient Parisii tribe settled on an island in the River Seine. We’ll start with Ile de la Cité with its catacombs, the 14th-century Notre Dame, La Sainte-Chapelle with its towering stained-glass windows and the city’s expansive flower and bird market. Next, we’ll cross the bridge to Ile Saint-Louis, one of the two natural islands, but fully developed over centuries. We'll learn of the now Hotel Jeu de Palme, once the tennis court of King Louis XIII. We'll also explore Le Pont Neuf bridge, the Bateaux river tours, the bouquinistes (booksellers), and across the river, the Shakespeare bookstore in the Latin Quarter.
