See the iconic Eiffel Tower and admire the Gothic majesty of the great cathedral of Notre Dame. Experience the lively atmosphere of the Latin Quarter. Check out the Mona Lisa’s enigmatic smile in the Louvre and the fabulous impressionist paintings in Musée d'Orsay.

At the recommendation of my travel agent I booked the 2 day tour. This made it east to get around the city and see everything. Much cheaper than a cab and with explanations...
