An Interactive Discovery of the City through the Centuries
Retrace the history of Paris, from its prehistoric origins up to our times. Relive the great moments in this city's history: the revolution of 1789, the upheavals of Haussmann's era, its liberation in 1944, and finally the great public works which mark the turn of the 21st century.
By opening the doors of its famous museums and cafes, rediscover the Paris of those great artists and writers who have lived there. Take part in the many celebrations which have enlivened the history of the French capital. Descend into subterranean Paris and explore its famous sewers and catacombs. Visit the unknown, hidden Paris: the mad projects of certain architects, like the elephant of the Place de la Bastille, or a Paris under the river. In short, discover the spirit of Paris and those who have shaped it: the artists, architects, and politicians.
Stroll through the different neighborhoods of contemporary Paris, soaking up the atmosphere of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Montmartre, or Ménilmontant. Discover a Paris you have never seen before. From the tops of the main monuments of the French capital - certain of which are off-limits to the general public - and admire the never before seen aerial views of the city.
At all times you can consult the detailed map of Paris or the chronology to explore the city over the centuries.
