Europe   Visit the Louvre Museum and have lunch at the Eiffel Tower

Spend a day exploring Paris in a very unusual way.

This excursion on foot and river boat will show you the highlights of Paris: visit the Louvre Museum, have lunch at the Eiffel Tower, and see the Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Departure from ParisCityVision' office in the center of Paris, where you will meet your guide. They or she will take you straight to the famous Louvre Museum.

Your guide will take you through this must-see museum and tell you about the main artworks: the Venus of Milo statue representing the goddess Aphrodite, the impressive painting of The Wedding at Cana, the Coronation of Napoleon illustrating the emperor’s crowning in the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and Leonardo da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa which is the most visited work in the Museum.

After your tour of the Louvre Museum which takes about 1.30 hours, your guide will take you to the river bank, before the Pont du Carrousel, to board a Batobus boat.

The boat will take you to the Eiffel Tower where lunch awaits you. This short cruise will show you Paris from a different angle.

You will see some of the superb bridges over the Seine and Paris monuments along the banks. The boat moors at the Quai de la Bourdonnais at the foot of the Trocadéro, right opposite the Iron Lady.

Your guide will let you disembark to go to the "58 tour Eiffel" restaurant where you can enjoy 3 course menu with dessert and drink. Your guide will then take you back to the river shuttle.

After about 20 minutes of cruising on the Seine, the boat arrives at the foot of the Île de la Cité in the historic center of Paris.

Walk up to the esplanade of the Notre-Dame Cathedral to behold this masterpiece of Gothic architecture built between 1163 and 1345, with its spires and famous gargoyles.

After telling you about the facade, you can take a guided tour inside followed by free time to walk around and look at the superb stained-glass and rose windows.

The tour ends at the Notre-Dame Cathedral, so that you can explore the Île de la Cité at your own pace or climb up to the top of the cathedral’s spires.
