Flea Market Tour Paris Instant Confirmation
With 17 separate markets and 2,500 shops, it is the world’s largest flea market and a unique Parisian treasure where fun and adventure are bound to be had provided you can find your way around it!
The tour gets under way at 10.45 sharp. As the group gathers, the guide presents the history of the market, how it started and why it is located where it currently is. You then walk through the trinket stalls on your way to the antiques market, while the guide gets to know the visitors so as to tailor the tour to their particular interests - do they want to shop or just to stroll and look? Jewellery, clothing, paintings, cooking utensils or old posters, what kind of objects are they looking for?
The guide presents objects, tells the behind-the-scenes mechanisms of the flea market, and recounts the history of art movements that you encounter during the tour. Your guide will negotiate with the vendors, teach you some bargaining tips, and describe famous present and historical figures of the flea market. The guide can also advise on buying and shipping. The antiques market is the world's largest, so as a result, the itinerary can change depending on guest's interests, but always explores a range of around a half a dozen distinct markets, ranging from the eclectic to the specialized, and from the bric a brac to the antiques. This 90-minute introduction will give you a better sense for this city-within-a-city and leave you ready to raid the market and make good finds!
