Visit Paris: Bastille - Marais - Notre-Dame of Paris

A hike from Bastille To Notre Dame

The route begins place of the Bastille. This square is the symbolic place of the French Revolution, where the former fortress of the Bastille was stormed on 14 July 1789, which marked the first act of the French revolution. The entrance in the Marais district is by the place des Vosges, former Royal square. Construction began in 1605 during the reign of Henri IV, and ends on the occasion of the engagement of Louis XIII and Anne of Austria. The journey borrows the rue des Rosiers, a traditionally Jewish street, the typical character of this street tends to disappear with the installation of clothing brand whose appearance is the same all over the world. The end of the hike goes through the 2 islands of Paris: the Ile Saint-Louis (stop recommended at Berthillon, famous glacier affluence guaranteed in summer) and the island of the Cité, birthplace of the city of Paris.
