From the Louvre, enjoy a relaxed walk through the Tuileries Gardens. This vast and beautiful park carries you until Place de la Concorde. But no rush! There is one focal place to visit before getting to the iconic square.
It is the famous Palais Garnier, also known as the Opera. This ballet and opera hall allowed the reorganization of the whole surrounding district: avenues, streets, and cafés, shaping a very harmonious set of 19th century architecture.
Now back to the iconic square! The Place de la Concorde opens wide in the center of Paris. From its heart, the urban perspectives are amazing with great monuments all around. Your Welcomer is going to show you which hotels, ministries, and churches are hidden behind these columned facades. Also, don’t forget to look straight ahead of you to see the glorious Champs-Elysées avenue and Arc de Triomphe!
Last but not least, your Welcomer is taking you up to Montmartre to see Paris from the best viewpoint! The Sacré-Coeur terrace provides an extraordinary panoramic view above Paris. By the end of this tour, you will be able to point out and locate all the places you’ve been to in the last four hours. You’ve really done all of this? Yes, you did!
