Street Art in the 13th district of Paris

The guided tour "The great frescoes of the 13th century

A district metamorphosed by large and impressive frescoes, colored that cover the facades of large buildings in the 13th. A remarkable artistic work, which astonishes by the diversity of the topics and subjects exposed, by the richness of the drawing and by the colors which explode...

  • In the 13th district of Paris, Street Art has developed under the impetus of the will of the town hall to "give color" to its neighborhood. The mayor has commissioned works from artists
  • This visit allows you to discover monumental frescos and other works of famous artists (French and foreign) like Marianne d'Obey, a "copy" is in the offices of the Elysee.
  • A Street Art less wild, very impressive and controlled that has transformed this neighborhood (less tourist) but in full development

Written by Patricia, 01-09-2023

First time I've taken part in a tour with this site, discovered by chance; very interesting tour with an enthusiast (in a group of 3, so almost private). It made me want to go on and discover other Street Art districts.

A very good introduction to Street Art that opens up many perspectives. A very clear and educational guide who not only talked about the works and artists, but also about the politics of the city and the movement as a whole. I recommend this activity, knowing that it evolves with time and new works.

Open-air Steet Art walk in the 13th arrondissement. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge in this field (we're neophytes!) and it was a wonderful discovery. Lots of information that opens our eyes to these works. To be recommended....

Written by Chiara, 29-03-2023

I took this tour the day after the Butte aux Cailles street art tour, and it's definitely worth doing one after the other. The 13th century frescoes are spectacular to see and the guide explained the details and her opinion of the works. Truly an open-air museum at its best!

Under the guidance of a top-quality guide, I was able to show my two grandchildren, aged 13 and 15, the main works by street art artists who have worked in the 13th arrondissement. They really enjoyed the visit.

Star Star Star Star Star - Street art 13th arrondissement
Written by vadrouillex (via TripAdvisor), on 15-04-2020

Initially, I booked this tour for my 21-year-old daughter and my 13-year-old son. In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed the walk, with the explanations of our Italian-born guide, who brought to life all the works he showed us. We never lost track of time. He combined modernity and history, and allowed us to have a good exchange with him on how to decipher the messages of the various artists. It has to be said that we were lucky enough to be only 5, which is a bit like the ideal conditions for a private tour.
