YOUR JOURNEY

A private and exclusive visit, with a customized choreography designed by Secret Journeys.

With your expert storyteller, learn the historical context of the surrounding area and the role played by the Bastille in pre-Revolutionary France.

Explore inside the column, a tomb for around 80 revolutionaries who lost their lives in the 1830 and 1848 Revolutions.

Learn about the fascinating history of the column and the temporary monuments that stood in its place, including Napoleon’s elephant.

Climb the column’s internal staircase, accompanied by your storyteller and an expert steeplejack, to enjoy incredible views of Paris from the viewing platform.
