Car service to the National Museum of the Middle Ages
You like museums, medieval buildings, well restored and sublime? Well, know that Paris is not only a beautiful city with modern palaces, grand sculptures, it also has some survivors of these ancient times. Witnesses of medieval art plunge you back several centuries back into the medieval past with their flamboyant Gothic style. We recommend a detour by shuttle bus to Thermes, at the Cluny hotel. These off-the-beaten-track discoveries give you an idea of what the French capital of yesteryear must have been.
The middle-class houses of the Middle Ages
The jewel of the kings of France is undoubtedly the Louvre, which is also one of the richest museums in the world, but it is the Hotel de Cluny that will have to be visited if you want to go back in time. The museum looks a bit austere on the outside but has some wonderful treasures inside. This famous 8th century hotel located at the crossroads of boulevards Saint-Michel and Saint-Germain in Paris houses the ruins of the Palace called the Thermes du Julien and the museum. The latter is refitted in 1949. The hotel contains a beautiful and curious collection of objects, most of which date from the 7, 8 and 9 th century. The route of the museum allows you to discover stained glasses, Gothic art, curious works dating from the Middle Ages. Among others, there is the Gallo-Roman column built in the 1st century, the Heads of Kings of Judah etc. For lovers of painting and art, do not miss the hangings, paintings, goldsmiths, furniture, tapestries and sculptures that are on the second floor of the building. These hangings were made in the 15th century! Do not forget to refresh yourself in the medieval garden of the museum with 5000 m2 of plants and flowers.
If you still want to see other vestiges of the Gallo-Roman time, also make a detour to the arena of Lutetia in the Ile de la Cite. In the 1st century of our era, people came to this amphitheater to attend gladiator fights or wildcat fights or shows. Its rediscovery dates back to 1869 and its track have now become a privileged terrain for school children for football games and a corner of petanque players. Other buildings like Notre-Dame, the Tour-Saint Jacques are also worth visiting if you still have time. Notre-Dame, the Metropolitan Church of Paris located in Ile de la Cité is built in the 12th century. Its portals, its towers, its 'pink' transept north, its outer apse are elegant masterpieces of Gothic architecture.
