Paris might be known as the city of light and love, but it is also the city of music, as the history and culture of the French capital cannot be understood without the artists that shaped them for centuries.
From the iconic Pont Neuf, we will start our most musical tour
Between song and song, we will see the famous Pompidou
We will discover Saint-Eustache, in Les Halles, a neighborhood with a different way of living and thinking
What better place, than the wall of Je t'aime, to talk about anecdotes of many artists
This tour takes you to iconic locations such as the square where Edith Piaf once sang regularly, the bridge that inspired Jackques Brel or the streets where Charles Aznavour lived all the stories he would later immortalise in his songs.
Every chapter of French history has been depicted in at least one song: the Roaring 20s, cabaret, the French Revolution and even the German occupation. Our expert guide (who is also a musician), will help you discover the lyrics of some of the most iconic and influential songs that every Parisian knows by heart.
For almost three hours you will walk through the beautiful and cinematic streets of Paris with Edith Piaf's music as your soundtrack. From the public square where she sang before becoming the diva who talked about a magical pink life despite her tragic background, to the streets where Les Misérables cried for freedom, every corner of the French capital hides a little piece of music history. You will also get the opportunity to admire the classical beauty of the Opera Palace and the charm of the legendary Moulin Rouge, home to many magical Parisian nights during the 19th century that would serve as inspiration to other artists such as Toulouse Lautrec.
Another unique location you will visit with this tour is the café where Picasso, Matisse or Apollinaire would talk art and politics while listening to the songs of the local musicians.
This is not just another guided tour of Paris, this is a journey through the history of music that will take you to some of the most charming corners and alleyways of the city. Our guide will play and sing the songs that tell the story of the French capital so that you can relive episodes of its history and gain a better understanding of its culture. If you are a musician yourself, feel free to let us know when making your reservation, and you will get the opportunity to play a song and help make everyone's experience even more special!
With our Free Tour Paris and its Music you will discover the streets of the city in a unique and different way, with a professional guide and musician who will sing you through the most important moments of their history.
