Big Bus offers two routes in Paris, allowing you to see the most famous sites of the city. The red route includes 10 stops close to the most iconic landmarks and attractions. Hop on and off as you wish to discover the city at your own pace and visit the places that appeal to you the most. For example, you can get off at l'Ile de la Cité where the Notre-Dame Cathedral sits on the impressive Place du Parvis. While strolling through the neighborhood, you will also see the Sainte Chappelle, which was built to house the Crown of Thorns of Christ's Passion, and the Conciergerie, which became a prison after having been a royal residence. Near l'Ile de la Cité you'll also find the Panthéon in the heart of the Latin Quarter and the magnificent Luxembourg Gardens which are home to the French Senate (Luxembourg Palace) and an ancient art museum.
