Essential Left Bank and Notre Dame Accessible Tour

Left Bank and Notre Dame Accessible Guided Tour_html_m7dcd005dThis accessible tour of the Left bank and Notre Dame is a perfect way to experience the atmosphere, sites and history of the vibrant and fascinating Latin Quarter. The tour combines a private walking tour with a private guided tour inside the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral, with plenty of opportunities to take pictures, grab a snack and enjoy Paris firsthand.

Medieval Paris was centered around the Latin Quarter area, and this Paris accessible walking tour brings you hundreds of years into the past. The tour starts by Luxemburg Gardens, situated on the border between St. Germain-des-Pres and the Latin Quarter, and ends with an interior guided tour of one of the most important structures from this time, the 800 year old Notre Dame Cathedral.

During the tour, your friendly private guide will narrate about the history of the area and show you several famous Parisian highlights, including the famous Sorbonne University, the picturesque Place de la Sorbonne square and the iconic Pantheon. Have your camera ready to capture beautiful views of the Seine River as well! All parts of this Paris wheelchair tour route have been proven to meet the needs of disabled visitors.

The Left Bank and Notre Dame Accessible Guided Tour includes:

– Accessible tour routes confirmed to be wheelchair accessible (no steps or curbs)
– 3 hour guided walking/rolling tour of Paris’ Left Bank and Notre Dame

Accessibility Description

I gave the Left Bank and Notre Dame Accessible Guided Tour a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating (our highest rating for a walking our) because it involves a step-free tour route and a convenient wheelchair lift inside the Notre Dame. The tour route is shorter than other accessible walking tours and only lasts 1.9 km (approx. 1 mile).

The tour route consists of fairly flat ground and has been designed to avoid cobblestones as much as possible. It avoids all curbs by using sidewalk ramps. There will also be accessible bathrooms available along the tour route.
