No character plays a larger role in some of his novels than the city of Paris, and few writers have left such an impact on the character of the City of Light as Victor Hugo.
At Paris Luxury Tours, our Victor Hugo tours take you, in a comfortable sedan driven by your personal bilingual guide, who is intimately familiar with the poet and novelist’s writings, to his city and to Notre Dame. One of his novels, relating to a certain hunchback, helped save the cathedral from destruction. Our Victor Hugo tours can also include a visit to the Paris sewers immortalized in Les Misérables (transformed by Haussmann), followed by his 21 other neighborhoods and places where he either lived, frequented, or about which he wrote in his novels.
It will visit his 1832-48 home at the place de Vosges in the Marais, where we will explore the apartments he occupied (which have been recently refurbished) and where there is an extensive collection of his manuscripts and drawings. We will also pass by his last home on the Avenue Victor Hugo, as well as visit the Rodin statue of him at the near-by intersection of Henri Martin avenue. We continue by passing on to the Arc de Triomphe, where we can visit an exhibition relating to his funeral.
Finally, while trying to imagine the over two million Parisians who lined the route in homage, we will trace his last voyage to his resting place at the Pantheon.
