Context Travel is a Rome-based tour company that offers educational walking tours for a number of European destinations. What makes Context Travel unique is its intellectual and educational focus, with experts from a variety of disciplines, including literature, history and art, leading the tours and providing a unique and in-depth look at the destination. There are a number of tours to choose from in locations such as Rome, Barcelona and London, with several designed especially for families, like the Kings Quest walk my family and I took while we were in Paris.
The Kings Quest walk goes around the city revealing the history of kings, queens and emperors who once ruled Paris, beginning at Point Zero, right in front of Notre Dame Cathedral. Point Zero is considered the true center of Paris and is the point used to measure all distances.
