SAINT DENIS BASILICA TOUR | HALF DAY TOUR FROM PARIS
Experience a fascinating historical private guided visit of the basilica of Saint Denis with this half-day private guided tour given by our expert tour guide.
Meet your driver-guide at your accommodation in Paris (pick up at your hotel or apartment) and enjoy a relaxing drive in our luxurious air conditioned van.
The Saint Denis basilica is known for being the burial site and royal necropolis for most of the French Kings and Queens, hosting over 70 recumbent statues and tombs. It is also the birthplace of Gothic art in France. Saved and restored by the architect Viollet le Duc, the basilica is located in Saint Denis, now a northern suburb of Paris. Learn about the legend of Denis, one of the seven bishops sent from Italy to preach and convert the people in France (known as Gaul at the time) during the middle of the 3rd century AD.
You will also learn about the new spire reassembly project for the Saint Denis church; the work just started last summer of 2019 and is supposed to last until 2030.
