Paris needs many visits to really know the city, but in today's full day tour you'll get an excellent overview of how it evolved during its 2,00 year history.

The excursion begins with the ascent to the 2nd floor of the Eiffel Tower for a panoramic view of Paris. A 70-minute cruise on the Seine with its unforgettable 38 bridges and viewing of many of the major monuments in the city is next. After the cruise the tour you'll continue with a drive by Concorde Square, the Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe, and Moulin Rouge to name a few. The Bonne Franquette Restaurant is the location for your lunch, including a glass of wine.

After lunch the tour continues through the village of Montmartre, passing by the Sacre Coeur Basilica and the famous Place du Tertre where artists and painters used to display their works. There will be a short stop to stroll in the narrow streets of this village. Later on your guide will drive you by the Opera, Vendome Squares, the Louvre, the Marais district, Notre Dame Cathedral, and on to the left bank through the Latin quarter, the Pantheon, Luxembourg Gardens, and the Invalides Church before returning to your hotel.
