Paris is a place that need no introduction.
After breakfast today, we begin exploring Paris. Our first stop - the Eiffel Tower! Because no holiday in Paris is complete without a visit to this iconic landmark. The magnificent structure itself in all its gigantism is an utterly beautiful sight. Then there is the panoramic city view that you get while atop the tower which we shall be visiting right up to the 3rd
We proceed for lunch and thereafter a guided city tour of this French capital known for its architectural beauty and its cultural treasures. Our tour ends with a visit to Montmartre by a one-way funicular ride.
While the on-road tour certainly is a great way to explore the city, it's a whole different experience to absorb in the city's character while sailing on the Seine River. So, we take a cruise down the famous river that allows us to grab marvellous views of many Parisian highlights including the recently visited Eiffel Tower, the Alexander Bridge, the National Assembly, the Louvre Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, Notre Dame Cathedral, etc.
Alight from the cruise and proceed for dinner before heading to the hotel to wade off the day's exhaustion. (B, L, D)
OR after dinner we can continue to enjoy the optional Illumination Tour, a truly wonderful experience that makes it apparent why Paris is called the City of Lights and the optional Lido Show performed by the popular Parisian Cabaret.
