Visit Paris’ Most Beautiful Monuments
With over 1,800 historical monuments, Paris is a huge city that offers tourists more than they’d ever hope to see during a stay in the City of Lights! So that you can visit Paris and its main monuments without having to elbow your way through hoards of people (30 million tourists visit the French capital every year!), PARISCityVISION offers a wide array of guided visits and tourist circuits to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Depending on your interests, availability, and the level of desired autonomy, you can choose the tour that best suits you and your needs.
Touring Paris in a panoramic bus will allow you to discover the city from the comfort of a luxurious and air-conditioned bus. Paris’s most emblematic monuments -- the Eiffel Tower, the Opera, the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame as well as Place Vendôme, the Panthéon, the Champs-Elysées and the Musée d’Orsay -- can all be admired from your comfortable seat. Recorded commentaries in the language of your choice will serve as your guide throughout the tour. Several packages exist (full- and half-day tours, 90 min. tours), all of which focus on the city’s must-see monuments while fitting into your own personal schedule.
PARISCityVISION also provides you with the opportunity to check out Paris at night. Whether you want to take a cruise on the Seine while sipping champagne on the boat’s deck, admire Paris’s most beautiful monuments all lit up from the comfort of a panoramic bus, or make the ascent with priority access to the Eiffel Tower’s second deck, you’ll be able to enjoy exceptional views of the City of Lights from up high or down low, on the ground or on water. Perfect for a first-time stay in Paris or a romantic getaway!
Other tours focus on certain neighborhoods such as the Historic Paris Tour that’ll take you through the famous Latin and Marais neighborhoods while passing through Place de la Bastille, Rue Saint-Antoine, Luxembourg Gardens and Saint-Germain des Prés. Or make your way through Paris’s old neighborhoods by bus while learning about their history from an official tour guide-interpreter who will also unveil secrets and other miscellany about Notre-Dame de Paris. A guided tour of Montmartre will take you to this hillside neighborhood’s slopes and grapevines, through the neighborhood of les Abbesses and onto Place du Tertre where countless Parisian painters took out their canvases. There’s also a steep but rewarding climb to see the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur where you’ll get a breathtaking panoramic view of Paris and its bohemian streets...
For those who prefer to get some exercise there’s the guided foot tour that goes from the Palais Royal to the Opéra Garnier during which you’ll discover covered walkways, the famous Buren columns and a fantastic view from the Galeries Lafayette. Another option is to visit the Ile de la Cité with only an itinerary and audio guide in hand. For small groups, PARISCityVISION proposes several tours by minibus that include guided visits and a skip-the-line pass for the Eiffel Tower.
PARISCityVISION hasn’t forgotten about independent travelers! One and two-day passes allow access to our buses that crisscross the city. Depending on what you want to see or where you want to go, you’ll be able to get on and get off at any of the 50 stops while enjoying Paris from a special vantage point. Visit Paris and its monuments at your own pace, without constraints!
