Best Of Paris Tour – Half Day (Private)
Want to make the most of your visit in Paris but have little time and don’t know where to start? Relax! We have planned the Best of Paris for you to see not only the touristic places, but also the local ones in your little precious time!
There are so many things to do in Paris that it is necessary to first choose your activities. Your Welcomer has selected the must-see places so that your half-day in Paris is fulfilling and successful! Let’s get right into your busy and exciting morning!
Time for a local activity: public transportation! We want you to see how Parisians move in the city as you are heading to Paris’s famous Gothic cathedral: Notre-Dame de Paris.
Riddle: Its elongated façades shelter the biggest art exhibitions in the world. Did you guess what are we talking about? That’s right! It’s the Louvre Museum. Your Welcomer is going to tell you everything about the history of the museum, and how it was once a royal palace!
Only here for a short time? Don't miss our awesome Best of Paris Tour!
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!
