Stroll on your own through the narrow streets of Montmartre, climb up to reach the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, also known as Sacré-Coeur, sitting on the crest of the hill. Explore the streets of Place du Tertre, located just few blocks from the basilica, where artists display their artworks for sale. You can also get your portrait sketched and take it as a souvenir.
Next, your English speaking driver cum guide will take you to the second floor of the magnificent Eiffel Tower, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the city. You won’t have to waste time in the long queues as you will have skip-the-line access to the tower.
The most recognizable symbol of the City of Lights, the 300 metre tall Eiffel Tower took more than 2 years to construct. Initially slated to be a temporary structure for a fair, the tower was restored after the emergence of wireless telegraphy aerials in Paris in the first decade of the 20th century. In the evening, the tower is a sight for sore eyes as it turns into a lighthouse illuminating a double searchlight, and effervescent lights flicker on the gridlines of the entire structure for the first 10 minutes of every hour.
After a fulfilling visit to two of the Paris’ top sites, a cruise along the River Seine is the perfect way to bring the tour to an end. Watch the city pass by as you gaze at some of the famous Parisian structures like the Louvre, Notre Dame and the Île de la Cité. Appreciate the beauty of the city and its picturesque monuments and charming bridges, watch the sunset and experience the city waking up to the sparkling lights.
