Notre Dame Cathedrale
You will then be dropped off at a Batobus station to reach the charming Ile de la Cité by the Seine river. Our guide will lead you to Notre-Dame cathedral to give you a passionate visit around this gothic architecture monument. Closed during its reconstruction, Notre-Dame de Paris is one of the symbol of Paris. While you listen to your guide telling you about its secrets and legends, written down by many artists such as Victor Hugo in his famous novel “ Notre-Dame de Paris”, you will understand how much it has been an important place in the history of the city.
You will have about 30 minutes free to have lunch in the neighborhood. Be back at our office at 1.30 p.m. for the afternoon excursion to Montmartre and the Louvre Museum.
Board our tour bus that will take you straight to Montmartre. At the Anvers metro station, you will take the cable car up to the top of the hill. Your guide will tell you a bit about the neighborhood, then give you some free time to wander about and discover the area on your own. You will see the Place du Tertre where Vincent van Gogh lived and where Renoir had his studio. Nowadays, the square is an outdoor exhibition space for many portrait and landscape painters and cartoonists. Don’t miss a visit to the Sacré-Coeur Basilica in Montmartre, with its Roman and Byzantine features.
The guide will meet you again to take the cable car down the slope and take a bus to the Louvre Museum. On a guided tour of about 1 hour you will see the main artworks of the Louvre: the Venus of Milo statue representing the goddess Aphrodite, the impressive painting of The Wedding at Cana by Paul Veronese, the Coronation of Napoleon illustrating the emperor’s crowning in the Paris Notre Dame Cathedral, and Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa which is the most visited work in the Museum.
