What To Expect
Spend your day enjoying two of the major institutions of Paris, the Cathedral of Notre Dame and the Louvre Museum. Start your day in the heart of Paris where the city was founded, the Ile de la Cité, with a short walking tour of this beautiful island. Explore the flower market, recently renamed in honor of Queen Elizabeth of England. Stroll along the Seine River and admire the Conciergerie, prison and last home of Marie Antoinette.
Upon arriving at Notre Dame, see its exterior as you guide explains both the construction methods of this monumental building, the first of its kind, and the many details on the façade, before taking you inside the cathedral to show you the spectacular 13th century stained glass windows. Then it's time to skip the famously long lines and ascend the cathedral towers for some of the best views over the city, accompanied, of course, by the famous gargoyles!
At midday, have free time to enjoy lunch on your own. Then go on a short walk to one of the world's greatest museums, the Louvre - another must see for any visitor to Paris. Housing one of the world's greatest and largest collections of artworks, 35,000 pieces on show and another million in the basement, some of the world's most famous pieces are in the Louvre. Go straight past the long lines, through the crowds and straight to the best masterpieces, bringing the art to life with stories of the artists and their lives. Marvel at the beauty of the Venus de Milo and the splendor of the Victory of Samothrace. See Michelangelo's slaves, and of course the Mona Lisa, probably the most famous painting in the world.
This full-day tour will introduce you to two of the most iconic sights of Paris. Expert local guides help to not only to skip the long lines and navigate the crowds, but also to get the most out of your time and your visit, ensuring that you get the very best out of your day.
