Paris - a city that needs no introduction, a city enriched with beauty, history, and love.
In a city like Paris one can get fully immersed and lost with what to do and the must see acts. Of course everyone knows the highlights of Paris such as the Eiffel Tower, however, there is so much more underlying gems hidden throughout the city. Paris itself tells it's own story and leaves your interpretation up to your imagination.
There are any things to do and see in Paris. For first time travelers to Paris getting a ticket on the The Open Tour is a must. This hop on hop off tour bus complete with a narrative guide (in 12 languages) takes you throughout the highlights of Paris while explaining it's history. You can see sights such as: The Eiffel Tower, the Palais Royal-Comedie Francaise, Musee du Lourve, Pont-Neuf-Quai des Orfevres, Notre-Dame, Saint-Michel located in the Latin Quarter, Musee d'Orsay, Concorde, Champs-Elysees Clemenceau [in addition to its history you will also see a row of shopping, restaurants, and nightclubs] and more.
Your open tour ticket is valid all day and you can hop on or off at your leisure. Also, their are four different routes to ensure all if Paris is covered and makes over 50 stops.
I also suggest hopping on the Bateaux Parisiens and see the highlights of Paris via the beautiful Sienne River. Tours depart at various places every 30 minutes from mid-morning to late night and are about 1 hour. To ensure you get the best experience multiple cruise options are available. You can choose: The Family Lunch Cruise, The Enchanted Cruise, The Dinner Cruise, and many others. The Dinner Cruise allows guests to see the magic and beauty of Paris lit up and scintillating.
The cruises start at either The Eiffel Tower or opposite of Notre Dame [check scheduling to book] and will move forward to see: Les Invalides, L'Assemblee Nationale, Le Musee D'Orsay, L'Institut De France, La Bibliotheque Nationale De France, L' Hotel De Ville, La Catherdrale Notre Dame, La Conciergerie, Le Lourve, La Place De La Concorde, Le Grand Palais, L' Arc De Triophe, Le Palais De Chaillot, Le Statue De La Liberte and more.
With the cruise you will have 13 unique panoramic boasts to see ALL of Paris. Some of the cruises [depending on which you book] will offer a variety of services and food such as cuisine with fresh ingredients prepared on board by the Chef. Booking a cruise will also grant you with the expertise and knowledge of the Bateaux Parisiens teams which has been in business since 1956. Last minute bookings are also available.
Price for The Seine Tours range from $14.00-$150.00 depending on the cruise of your choice. These are a nice take on seeing the beauty of Paris!
To conclude we were also able to see some of the top museums. Paris is a city that has over 60 museums and monuments so for any Parisan traveler this pass is a great idea. Not only will you have access to all of the museums and monuments [over 60] but you saving time by not waiting in line.
