With everything from grand boulevards to hidden passages, Paris is arguably the most walkable—and walked—city on Earth. Stretching just 10 kilometers from north to south, and 12 kilometers from east to west, there are few destinations inside the city you cannot walk to with enough time.
And what walks they are! The parks, the canals, the cemeteries, the boulevards, the passages, the riverbanks . . . and that’s not to mention museums and other buildings worthy of a visit. Paris is, as someone said, “inexhaustible.”
WICE works to give its members every opportunity to take advantage of Paris’s great walking and touring opportunities with our Wednesday Walk program. We try to fill the calendar each trimester with curated and non-curated walks, and museum tours, on as many Wednesdays as possible. And we also arrange interesting talks from subject matter experts on items of interest in and about Paris. For example, this trimester we offer "indoor" lectures in addition to the walks to locations related to the American Revolution in Paris. This is the first time we've offered talks on this subject. Check it out: there are 3 walks and 4 lectures. Choose the walks or the talks or both.
Some are free to WICE members, and some cost a small consideration to pay for the walk leaders’ time. But all are fun, informative, and interesting. And most end with some time at a local café to get to know your fellow walkers a little better.
So, check out this trimester’s offerings below, grab your walking shoes, and join us for a few hours of exploring some of Paris’s many, many wonderful things to see.
