While following the news of Rosemary’s Baby, Set in Paris decided to get in the spirit of the genre, and hop on the Mysteries of Paris tour, “the first, original, and premiere tour to explore the ‘Darkside of the City of Lights’. Night Tours featuring Vampire & Ghost Walk brings you through the dark heart of Paris and gives you an alternative experience which allows you to see Paris in a way no other company will reveal.”
Starting at Notre Dame, the tour group congregates around the statue of Charlemagne, where you are acquainted with the hilarious and enthusiastic tour guide, Robin. The tour is a fun and unique insight into Paris’ dark history. Beginning with the earliest days of Paris’ settlement, and making its way through history, highlighting notorious crimes and mysterious legends. What dark secrets are hidden behind the doors of Notre Dame? Why must you never propose to someone at the Eiffel Tower (other than it being so overly cliché in the French’s opinion)? What truth lurks behind the vampire myths that sparked novels and films such as Interview with a Vampire? Find out all this and more, and you tread hallowed grounds, from the bloody history of Place de Grève and Hotel de Ville, to the infamous home of the evil barber-boulanger crime duo that inspired Sweeney Todd. An exciting way to see the City of Lights, after the lights go down. Laugh, gasp, make new friends and get goosebumps along the way! Robin and Father Sebastiaan, Director and Founder of Mysteries of Paris, are your hosts for an evening of thrills and chills. If you want to explore the eerie side of the city, masqueraded behind the picturesque tourist attractions of Paris, look no further: Mysteries of Paris is an experience to die for!
