5/5 (38 reviews)
  • Description

Spend a day exploring Paris in a very unusual way. This excursion on foot and river boat will show you the highlights of Paris: visit the Louvre Museum, have lunch at the Eiffel Tower, and see the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Departure from our office in the center of Paris, where you will meet your guide. He or she will take you straight to the famous Louvre Museum right opposite our office. Your guide will take you through this must-see museum and tell you about the main artworks: the Venus of Milo statue representing the goddess Aphrodite, the impressive painting of The Wedding at Cana, the Coronation of Napoleon illustrating the emperor’s crowning in the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa which is the most visited work in the Museum.

After your tour of the Louvre Museum which takes about 1.30 hours, your guide will take you to the river bank, before the Pont du Carrousel, to board a Batobus boat. The boat will take you to the Eiffel Tower where lunch awaits you. This short cruise will show you Paris from a different angle. You will see some of the superb bridges over the Seine and Paris monuments along the banks. The boat moors at the Quai de la Bourdonnais at the foot of the Trocadéro, right opposite the Iron Lady.

Your guide will let you disembark to go to the "58 tour Eiffel" restaurant.
