See where old French nobility used to live four centuries ago in the Marais District. Explore the Sorbonne in the Latin Quarter and the famous cafes and church at Saint Germain des Pres.
The tour also includes a guided visit to the interior of Notre Dame Cathedral where travellers can learn about the significant role of the monument for the Parisians and the history of Paris since the Middle Ages.
Depending on river conditions, the tour takes you on a short cruise to see the Cité Island where Paris began some two thousand years ago. Free time for lunch. Montmartre + Louvre Museum
See the charming village of Montmartre where many artists (Van Gogh, Renoir, Picasso) settled to enjoy the simple and peaceful country life towards the end of the 19th century. The tour begins with a guided walking tour of the village and Place du Tertre. Afterward, travelers are free to explore the village including the Sacred Heart Basilica on top of the hill.
From Montmartre, the tour heads to the Louvre Museum, where a guided visit will take you through its many exhibits such as the Winged Victory, the Venus of Milo, and Da Vinci's famous Mona Lisa.
