Let Shady Ladies Tours introduce you to the royal mistresses and courtesans of Paris’ history, from Madame de Pompadour to the (real!) Lady of the Camellias. Discover them with Professor Andrew Lear, world-renowned scholar of sexuality and art, and founder of our company.
Not surprisingly for the capital of France, Paris has a rich history of seductive women who rose to the top. From royal mistresses like Madame de Pompadour and Madame du Barry, to courtesans like the (real!) Lady of the Camellias, the Shady Ladies of Paris reigned over the so-called demi-monde, a glittering section of high society that—even if it had to glitter in the shade—was often the true center of power. Let Shady Ladies Tours introduce you to this intriguing side of Paris, from the Renaissance to the Belle Epoque. You will be guided by Professor Andrew Lear, world-renowned scholar of sexuality and art, and founder of our company. We’ll see famous sights (such as the Musée d’Orsay) from a whole new angle; we’ll discover hidden gems that reveal the lives of women who were singers, painters, and leaders of literary salons across the ages; and we’ll dine in restaurants fit for a queen. Topped with a stay in a luxury hotel that has its own racy history, as well as a charming visit to a perfume museum, this tour gives you Paris the way Madame de Pompadour herself would want you to see it. Discover the City of Light for the first time, or see it again from an entirely new perspective. Whether you make it a fun long weekend with friends, or as part of a longer trip to France, Shady Ladies of Paris will create memories to last a lifetime.
