One Day in Paris, 24 hours in Paris
Have you got only one day to see the essential Paris has to offer? If you’re short on time during your travel and want to see the most famous monuments without losing precious time carting around the city or standing in line, Paris City Vision has several packages to discover the French capital in record timing so that you can visit its most remarkable sites with priority access. By bus, minibus, or on foot, you’ll be able to hit up those personal favorites without missing out on a thing!
You can also visit Paris on an air-conditioned panoramic bus. It is a great way to admire the capital’s most famous monuments as fast as possible: The Louvre, Notre-Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Musée d’Orsay, and the Place de la Concorde among others. Just a half-day is all you need to do that tour before going on to complete the day with a cruise on the Seine to check out all the monuments that line up along the infamous river banks. Top off the tour with a priority access visit to the Eiffel Tower, where Paris spreads out below and can take some fabulous snapshots and selfies. Depending on the selected package, you can grab lunch on the first deck of the Eiffel Tower and enjoy a refined meal while lapping up your plate -- and the views!
Make the most of your available time and choose Paris City Vision’s packages that include priority-access visits. Avoid long lines at the Louvre and get inside with a skip-the-line pass so that your guided visit can start. Or, reserve a discovery tour by bus that includes visiting the Latin Quarter, the Marais, and a guided visit of the Notre Dame Cathedral and Montmartre in the company of an official tour guide-interpreter and priority access to the Louvre. Take a few minutes to walk in the Tuileries garden next to the museum.
To take full advantage of your Parisian day, don’t hesitate to make a dinner reservation at the restaurant on the first deck of the Eiffel Tower. It is a nighttime cruise on the Seine to see the city lit up or watch la Féérie at the infamous Moulin Rouge cabaret. The majority of tours and visits proposed by Paris City Vision are also tailored to small groups that get around by minibus and can be made private for a personalized package that includes pick-up and drop-off wherever you’ll be staying in Paris.
For walkers or tourists who prefer to remain autonomous, a day-pass with access to Paris City Vision’s panoramic, double-deck buses is available. This pass allows for getting on and getting off at any of the 50 stops throughout the city; you can, therefore, visit Paris at your own pace without any constraints. Another option is to do a self-guided tour of the Louvre museum with audio-guide or a guided tour of Montmartre by foot to discover this hillside neighborhood’s grapevines and the Abbesses, the beautiful Basilique du Sacré-Coeur, the Place du Tertre and a lot of other beautiful places.
Finally, you can also visit Paris by metro to walk and get a glimpse of Parisian life.
