This innovative two-hour walking tour focuses on the beautiful architecture of Paris, from medieval churches and houses, to a Renaissance fountain in les Halles, through the times of kings, emperors and presidents. Angels are everywhere, found in the most surprising places – on top of theatres, in parks and gardens, on courthouse clocks, museum rooftops, doors, archways and pediments. Carved in wood, engraved in stone, illustrated in ceramic or cast in bronze, the angels illustrate the artistic and architectural trends throughout the ages on pediments, doors and archways. Find out the difference between cherubs, angels and winged deities while learning about the work of France’s greatest architects, sculptors and artists.
Bring binoculars, opera glasses or a camera with a zoom lens to get a closer look at the angels perched on high!
