Što ćete raditi

Explore the beautiful Marais area through the stories of the Kings and Queens who built it! During this historical walk, we will connect magnificent off the beaten path places to the reign of five quintessential Kings who established Absolute Monarchy!

Let's mingle with the famous or infamous royal "favourites": La Marquise de Montespan; La Pompadour; Du Barry; etc. The glamour, palace lifestyle, dangerous liaisons, and scandals might be the most visible facet of the royal court but...

...Kingdoms are also built with blood, sweat and tears, wars of thrones, political feuds, family betrayals, assassinations, beheadings... As they said: business as usual! Yet, in the midst of all that, Voltaire, Rousseau and the age of enlightnment emerged: a Revolution of ideas was planting its seeds...

By the end of our walk, you will have a greater understanding of the two centuries leading up to the French Revolution and you will be able to distinguish Kings Henry IV, Louis XIII, Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI!

Join me on a Journey back in time to the making of Absolute Monarchy in the gorgeous Marais area!

Hi, I’m Thierry Collegia!

History has been my passion since I was a teenager. My purpose is to make history entertaining and to show the human side of historical figures. I love sharing the little anecdotes behind the major events and I enjoy revealing the secrets of Paris hidden in the major landmarks or in the nooks and crannies.

Having spent 16 years in the US and the UK gives me the hindsight to approach historical events with different perspectives, along with a knowledge drawn from a lifetime of attending history talks, courses, exhibitions, tours and reading hundreds of books.

So come time travel with me on my Historic Walks (or Online Experiences) on the Fathers of the American Revolution in Paris; La Fayette; the French Revolution, Napoleon, the Kings & Queens; and the stunning Art Nouveau Architecture!

Fabulous tour guide! If you are looking for a textbook history tour not for you. Thierry makes history come alive and relatable to your average tourist. It’s the fastest 2 1/2 hours I’ve spent in a long time. It was so much fun and although I thought I was good at history, he framed it so I saw the historical figures as people and it really made me appreciate the Paris sights and history of France so much more. Will definitely book future tours with him next time I’m in Paris.

Thierry organized a wonderful tour! If you like history, then I highly recommend booking this. He walked us through the start of France’s absolute monarchy and all the historical figures involved - many of which had very colorful personalities and stories. He even brought along some accompanying slides on an iPad with additional pictures! All of the kings were connected to the monuments we saw along the way. Thierry is passionate, thoughtful, and entertaining - I highly recommend attending!

Thierry was patient and engaging, he showed us images from his iPad that explored the areas we are in, expositioned the characters from history. I learned a lot about Louis XIII to XVI and he even brought us to where Marie Antoinette was tried. It was a cool walk and we covered a lot of ground, both literally and figuratively!

Thierry is very knowledgeable about his subject. He was able to answer our many questions about the royalty of France, but also about other topics that didn't deal with the subject at hand. His manner of storytelling was also very interesting. He seems to really enjoy the subject matter and that comes through in his enthusiastic presentation. Thierry connaît très bien son sujet. Il a répondu à nos nombreuses questions au sujet de la royauté de France, mais aussi au sujet d'autres sujets qui ne traitaient pas des rois et des reines. Sa manière de raconter était très intéressante. Il semble vraiment aimer le sujet et cela transparaît dans sa présentation enthousiaste.
