Museums and sites are wonderful but also pretty frustrating since they rarely explain fully or tell the good stuff. This experience is my revenge. Instead of names and dates, we'll cover six thousand years of offbeat often hidden stories and symbols with a focus on the interesting or at least more bizarre ones. The goal is to visit amazing places but also learn how to read and question art, architecture, history, fashion, food and behavior. It's a classroom on heels: no homework, no tests, talking out of turn encouraged, bad jokes appreciated. We start at Notre Dame to see how Gothic church design incorporates abstract art, all five senses and incredibly inappropriate images. (They really are inappropriate, so this experience is for 14 years old and above please.) Then we’ll amble through Paris’ Latin Quarter to see how a painting of fruit can be risqué, how a window can represent eternity and why someone put a large stone next to Banksy’s graffiti referencing May 1968. There are high brow insights (interpreting images of the Virgin and Child) and low brow laughs (start with if Jesus is naked.) Award winning cheese stores and bakeries are included, but you have to find the former CIA front business with only one guess per group. Tour routes change depending on wind and whim, but it's always fun showing this incredible city while helping an organization that does it right.
After teaching and giving tours in Paris for the past sixteen years, I still don’t know how many steps are in the Eiffel Tower, but I love telling the story of how it lost its symbolism or where to find Monty Python’s Killer Rabbit in Notre Dame. I have studied and taught art as well as history and love exploring the links between the past and the present, the artistic and mundane.

The tour winds through the heart of Paris’ Latin Quarter on the northern slope of romantic Mount Saint Genevieve. We’ll meet by Notre Dame and end up somewhere interesting near food and transport options. Instead of the Eiffel Tower, we'll focus on the local stories and sites that make the neighborhood one of the most famous and influential in western culture. Every block has stories, some hidden in plain sight, some just hidden.
