Begin your walking tour at the medieval Île de la Cité, a small island on the Seine that is Paris' ancient historical centre. Explore its crooked streets and marvel at Notre Dame before passing over the famous ‘love locks bridge’ into the Latin Quarter. Pay visits to historical bookshops, once frequented by the likes of Hemingway and Orwell, and explore an area that is renowned for being the starting point of the May 68' Revolution as well as the home of French intellectual thought. Wander through the Latin Quarter's numerous backstreets and the idyllic Luxembourg Gardens before taking a stroll through St Germain de Près, home to numerous Parisian cafes, the likes of which feature in many classic photographs and films. Experience this prominent cafe culture scene first hand with a relaxing stop-off for lunch with your guide, who will ensure you find the very best the local area has to offer. Discuss this neighbourhood's famous literary and intellectual scene over a café au lait and a croissant and put yourself in the shoes of Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir.
Stroll across the river and wander through the courtyards of The Louvre, admiring the museum's stunning architecture. Then pass through the Tuileries Gardens to the Place de la Concorde, the famous execution site of Louis XVI during the French Revolution. With your own private expert guide, you will cover topics ranging from art, architecture, history and politics to the best walks and hidden haunts around the area.
Next, take in the amazing sights on a cruise which will transport you to the neighbourhood where the famous Eiffel Tower is located. An iconic residential neighbourhood with French noble associations, the seventh arrondissement comprises some of the most amazing museums, gardens, eateries and markets in Paris. You will also find the city’s oldest department store here. Return to centrally located Île de la Cité on a cruise or take the time to explore the stunning area around the Eiffel Tower at night on your own.
