This is the house where Victor Hugo lived from 1832 to 1848. He had already written "Notre-Dame de Paris" and he had only started "Les Misérables" (that he will in the end write in exile). But if we visit his apartment, you will find out that the story of Esmeralda & Quasimodo and "Les Miz" were just raindrops in the ocean of his life. What a man, what a production, what a life! Love, sex, drama, poetry, comedy, history, tragedy, farce, failures, successes: he wrote them all and lived them all! Everybody knows who Victor Hugo was but how many actually know about his life, dreams and fullfilments? Well, after I've taken you there, you will know ALL about him and I honestly believe you'll be glad that you do!
About the house itself, only one room looks the way it used to during his lifetime but it will nevertheless give you a good idea of what the apartments overlooking the Place des Vosges were/are like. And, in the other rooms, you get to see some portraits of him and his close-ones, manuscripts and unique pieces of furniture created by him.
Please make the choice to go inside (except Mondays) during our tour of the Marais because the entrance is free (when there's no temporary exhibition), the visit only takes one hour and I can make it the highlight of your day!
