Paris Literature Tour

Watch your literary heroes spring to life as you through the historic heart of Paris's famed literature scene.
You'll summon the spirits of literature's greatest talents, all of whom lived in Paris and perfected their craft by observing the city's street life and romantic intimacy. Known famously as the "Lost Generation," writers and artists, including Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway, Ezra Pound, Picasso, and James Joyce, all called the city home. Other writers who used Paris as a muse include Simone de Beauvoir, Victor Hugo, George Sand, Oscar Wilde, James Baldwin, and more.
You'll relive moments from your favorite stories as you retrace the authors' inspirations throughout the Left Bank, pausing to hear enlightening tales of their lives, their loves, and, occasionally, their lunacy. Stops include the iconic Shakespeare & Company, the literary haunts of Boulevard Saint-Germain, and a charming Parisian café break.
