Self-Guided Walking Tours to Explore Paris, France

Welcome to Paris, “the city of lights” and international capital of fashion, known for its many monuments and for being a boldly romantic city. If you are visiting for the first time, the two Introduction Walks (Walk I / Walk II) will take you to the most famous sights. Other walks help you explore picturesque areas like Montmartre, Le Marais and the Latin Quarter, all with their charming and lively vibes. If you are here to discover the main landmarks of the French Revolution, we've set up a specially-themed walk for that very purpose.

In all, we have prepared 16 self-guided walks for you to explore Paris, which cover everything from charming neighborhoods to important religious sites, nightlife venues and shopping. Not only that, but you can also create your own walk with the attractions that interest you most and even set your hotel as the walk's starting point!

How it works: Download the app "GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities" from iTunes App Store or Google Play Store to your mobile phone or tablet. Each walk comes with a detailed tour map as well as photos and background information for the featured attractions. The app's navigation functions guide you from one attraction to the next. The app works offline, so no data plan is needed when traveling abroad.
