This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Place de la Concorde

A royal square designed by architect Gabriel in the 18th century. In 1792, this square was home to a guillotine that took thousands of victims’ lives. In 1836, King Louis Philippe installed the obelisk, a gift from Egypt.

Pass By: Louvre Museum

Constructed as a stronghold in the 13th century, it went on to become the French royal residence and was transformed into a museum in 1793. Today, it displays over 35,000 words of art (Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo...). Since 1989, visitors enter through the glass pyramid, designed by architect Ieoh Ming Pei.

Pass By: Hotel de Ville

The neo-renaissance style Hôtel de Ville in Paris was rebuilt in the 19th century after being burnt down during the Commune rule of 1871. Today, it serves as the Paris City Hall.

Pass By: Conciergerie

What remains of the palace of the first kings of France, the Conciergerie became a prison during the French Revolution.

Pass By: Ile de la Cite

The ‘cradle’ of the city of Paris where its very first inhabitants (the Parisii) settled in the 3rd century BC.

Pass By: Cathedrale Notre-Dame de Paris

A jewel of Gothic architecture. Beginning in 1163, construction wasn’t completed until 1350. It was celebrated by Victor Hugo in his famous novel, ‘The Hunchback of Notre-Dame’. We owe the restoration to architect Viollet-Le-Duc who undertook this project in the 19th century.

Pass By: Ile Saint-Louis

Formerly the île aux vaches (cow’s island), here you’ll find the most beautiful 16th and 17th century houses, constructed for the most part by architect Le Vau.

Pass By: Pont-Neuf

The oldest stone bridge in Paris, it was opened in 1606. At its centre, you can see the equestrian statue of King Henri IV, nicknamed Vert Galant (The Green Gallant) because of his many female conquests.

Pass By: Musee d'Orsay

With its façade hinting at its past life as a railway station, constructed in 1900, it today serves as a museum displaying masterpieces of the 19th century, and more precisely, the work of the Impressionists.

Pass By: Esplanade des Invalides

Recognisable by its dome adorned in fine gold, it was originally built as a hospital for the war wounded under the reign of Louis XIV. Today, it houses the tomb of Napoleon I and the Musée de l’Armée (Military Museum).

Pass By: Eiffel Tower

Nicknamed the ‘Iron Lady’, it was designed by engineer Gustave Eiffel for the 1889 World Exhibition. A genuine feat of engineering, she stands 324 metres high and weighs in at 10,000 tonnes.

Pass By: Palais de Chaillot

Built for the 1937 World Exhibition, it houses various museums (the Naval Museum, the Museum of French Monuments, the Museum of Man...)
