A hotspot of inspiration for artists through the ages, there’s no better place to start your day than in the neighborhood of Montmartre, where you’ll meet your guide and small group. Hop onto the Montmartre Funicular (tickets included!) and ride to the top of the hill for stunning views, then step inside the Sacré-Coeur Basilica (literally the ‘Sacred Heart’ of Paris) built between 1875 and 1914 to hear its fascinating history. It may seem peaceful now, but you’ll soon discover how this was a site of enmity between the conservative secularists and the rebel ‘Paris Commune’ who struggled for control of the city during the 18th century.

Meander along the narrow alleyways and cobblestone streets that inspired some of the most prolific artists in history, walk in the footsteps of Vincent Van Gogh - and find out where Picasso used to hang his hat!

A short coffee break follows, before we hop on the Metro towards Île de la Cité. One of the city’s two natural islands, this is where you’ll discover the true origins of medieval Paris.

Arguably the most famous independent bookstore in the world, ‘Shakespeare and Company’, has its home in the city’s Latin Quarter; a cultural and intellectual paradise. Here you’ll walk along winding streets learning all about its history before stepping inside a medieval Gothic Church for a taste of the city’s spectacular architecture - including a glimpse of the famous Notre Dame Cathedral from across the river.

By now, you’re sure to have worked up an appetite, so at this point you’ll have some free time for lunch. Your guide will be more than happy to share recommendations on the best places to eat around the area - and steer you away from its tourist-traps!

After lunch we’ll reconvene at Saint Louis Island to travel down the Seine in style with a scenic river cruise. Soak up the city’s most memorable landmarks, including the Pont Neuf Bridge, Saint-Chapelle and Notre Dame Cathedral and snap some postcard-perfect shots along the way!

A tour of Paris isn’t complete without a visit to the most iconic marker of the city; the Eiffel Tower. Standing 1000-feet tall, the tower is not only a cultural landmark but a work of technological genius. With second level tickets included, you’ll be able to take in incredible views over Paris, finishing your day with a true appreciation for the city’s classic iconography.
