Arc du Carrousel - Le Marais

Here is a question that is often put to us: “I would like to see monuments and sites very well known in Paris but also places less touristic … What am I going to visit with Paris Running Tours ?”
Of course, during the run, our guides will make you discover the iconic sites of Paris (with total peace of mind, before the crowd). However, during the same run, our guides, authentic Parisians, will take you to other magnificent places less known and rarely visited by tour operators, AirBnB tours, large groups or standardized tours.
We take time before the run to prepare your custom-made tour: you will understand Paris in a unique way. Running allows us to grasp many aspects of Paris, and to discover alternatively the prestigious monuments and also places less known sites by the general public but equally exciting. At Paris Running Tours we know how to lead you there 😉
Here is a panel (a quite small sample) of what you can visit with Paris Running Tours (click on the picture to enlarge them):


Pyramide du Louvre

Latin Quarter

Kristine – A street of the Latin Quarter which comes to us directly from the 17th century


Notre Dame de Paris

Chrissann and Michael – “Notre Dame de Paris” from the Left bank


Le Grand Rex

Nicole – “Le Grand Rex”. The Grand Rex, created in 1932, was one of the largest cinemas in the world. It can still accommodate more than 2500 people in the great hall. Behind the trees, you can see a large sign where “REX” is written. Originally, instead, this had to be a big screen with, projected from within, giant advertisements. Paris refused it for fear of having accidents caused by motorists distracted by this attraction…


Palais du Luxembourg

Nicole – “Jardin du Luxembourg”, in the back, the “Palais du Luxembourg”


Passage Choiseul
