Private Tours Paris

Paris Tourist Attractions

When you hear about Paris, what come to your mind first will be the Eiffel Tower, famous museums, and all other popular attractions. Yet there is a lot to the City of Lights apart from these usual tourist sites. Given below are some of the unusual places that you should visit during your private tours Paris.

Museum of Vampires and Legendary Creatures

In the middle of Les Lilas, at the end of gravel paths, a scarlet entrance opens up to a door that leads to a creepy garden that mimics a cemetery. Genuine human and plastic bats are attached to trees lingering like a dark omen for visitors. You will be amazed by these cemeteries, where actual vampire rituals were performed once.

The Room of Endangered and Extinct Species

La Salle des Espèces Menacées et des Espèces Disparues is where you get to see 257 rare specimens of disappearing and vanished species. You can see disappearing animals like a large nocturnal lemur from Madagascar, the Aye-aye, the endangered Sumatran Tiger, a preserved Coelacanth fish, and Cape lion and Barbary lion that are extinct in the wild.

Dans le Noir?

It is said that eating is a visual experience; however, it is not the case in “Dans le Noir?”, because here, you can have dinner in complete darkness. This restaurant is staffed entirely by the visually impaired. The visitors are seated by a waiter guide, who gives instructions on things like how to avoid spilling drink or food. You will have no idea of what you eat, where diners sit, how many are there on the table or how big the room is.

Gallery of Paleontology and Comparative Anatomy

This museum was established in 1898 and its mission is to preserve a number of scattered scientific collections. This museum is divided into two separate galleries: the Gallery of Paleontology, that has an amazing collection of fossils with a number of massive dinosaur skeletons, and the Gallery of Comparative Anatomy, that has over 1000 animal skeletons packed wall to wall.

Gustave Eiffel’s Secret Apartment

Do you know that Gustave Eiffel had a secret apartment in the Eiffel Tower? This apartment was built high atop the Eiffel Tower at the third level. It was a cozy private apartment furnished in simple style. The walls were covered with warm wallpaper, and the furniture included cabinets, soft chintzes, and even a grand piano.
