  • Bastille Prison
    213955 The French Revolution officially began on July 14, 1789 as the citizens stormed the Bastille prison. The prison no longer exists and our tour does not visit the location of the former prison, but we will discuss the event.
  • Les Invalides
    213959 The French army used this building as an ammunition depot in the city. Revolutionaries scaled the moat and stole over 30,000 weapons that were used in the attack on the Bastille prison.
  • The Conciergerie
    213956 This former prison sits on the Ile de la Cité and over 2,500 prisoners were sent to the guillotine from here. The most famous prisoners included Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVII. Later, Marie Antoinette's cell was converted into a chapel.
  • King Louis XVI
    213960 King Louis XVI ruled from 1774 until 1793. His grandfather, King Louis XV, outlived his own son so the throne skipped a generation and Louis XVI became king at the age of 19.
  • Marie Antoinette
    213961 Marie Antoinette was from Austria and married King Louis XVI at the age of 14. They were already second cousins, once removed. Their son, King Louis XVII, died at the age of 10 during the French Revolution.
  • Beheading of King Louis XVI
    213957 King Louis XVI was beheaded in the current-day Place de la Concorde on January 21, 1793. He had been stripped of all titles and was guillotined in front of a large crown as simply citizen Louis Capet. The executioner testified that he had bravely met his fate.
