Description

Spend a day visiting two of the most beautiful sites in Paris;, the Musée d'Orsay and Notre Dame.*

Start your day at the world's largest collection of impressionist paintings at the Musée d'Orsay. This magnificent museum is home to some of the world's greatest painters and many of their best-known and loved works of art. See paintings by Van Gogh, Monet, Degas, Cezanne, Renoir, Toulouse Lautrec, and many more. Learn the fascinating stories of their lives, and the changing society they lived in, as your guide explains how they transformed the face of art while capturing these changes.

Get up close to some of the world's most recognizable paintings as your guide explains the new techniques they used, once again radical for their time, and how they paved the way for future artists and artistic movements. The favorite museum of Parisians, the Musée d'Orsay is not to be missed!

At midday, have free time to enjoy lunch on your own. Then go on a short and picturesque walk along the banks of the Seine River to the Ile de la Cité, the meeting point for your afternoon tour.

Spend your afternoon 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 river and admire the Conciergerie, prison and last home of Marie Antoinette.

Continue on to the Notre Dame Cathedral,* considered by some to be the most famous cathedral in the world. The cathedral was built between 1163 and 1345, and was later celebrated and possibly saved by Victor Hugo's 'The Hunchback of Notre Dame.' Upon arriving, 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.

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 visits, ensuring that you get the very best out of your day.
