An Explorer’s Guide to French Landmarks in New York.

Join us as we go under the surface of the city and discover traces of Paris in New York. In honor of Bastille Day, we’ve teamed up with The Cultural Services of the French Embassy to create a free audio tour of 6 landmarks that exemplify the deep bond between our nations. Whether you want to see the sites in person or satisfy your wanderlust from afar, anyone can experience the rich history behind this international friendship in our virtual tour.

These stories are told by Deputy Cultural Counselor Hervé Ferrage and Press Officer Mathilde Campergue, each illuminating the long history of diplomacy, artistic collaboration and mutual admiration between France and the United States.

Download the Gesso app for the best experience including an interactive map.
