Paris is one of the world’s great walking cities.
After you’ve booked your flights or trains and found apartments in Paris to rent, you’ll easily find special Paris walking tours.
One of our favorite travel companies is Context Travel, a scholarly tour company.
“In this age of mass tourism, we think it’s important to take travelers off the beaten path and show them new ways of experiencing the great cities of the world,” says Paul Bennett, Context Travel co-founder.
This year, Context Travel launched the new Paris walking tour A Walk with Thomas Jefferson.
On the three-hour tour, Context docents discuss the impact of Paris on Thomas Jefferson and highlight “monuments and urban spaces that influenced his architectural and aesthetic sensibilities.”
Led by historians and art historians, the walk is limited to six participants.
Context is a network of English-speaking scholars and professionals who design and lead walking seminars in 13 world cities.
The walking tour destinations include Florence, Rome, Venice, Naples, Paris, London, Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, DC, Istanbul, and Athens.
