Ah, Paris. For centuries, the City of Light has been the dream destination of sweethearts and all those who love French culture and lifestyle. It is widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful cities, and once there it’s impossible to keep from falling under its spell. The magic of its great historic monuments guarantees you an unforgettable trip through time. Experience the allure of the Haussmann-style buildings, one of the city’s signature characteristics. Delight in the authentic, picturesque atmosphere of the cobblestone streets in Montmartre or the Marais. Enjoy a glass of wine on a balcony overlooking the rooftops. Explore the city by night like Hemingway for a Midnight in Paris-style adventure, losing yourself in ancient times.
But whatever you do during your stay in the French capital, be sure not to miss taking a romantic walk along the banks of the Seine.
Pair your walk with a Batobus ride for the perfect day out
Let Open Tour Paris take you on an unforgettable trip along this legendary river. Getting a closer look at the monuments and seeing them from a new angle is the best and most unique way to experience this city of a hundred villages. That’s why we’re offering a combination of three of the most popular ways to get around in the heart of the city: by bus, on foot, and by river boat. Are you ready to wander through Paris, taking in its delightful atmosphere?
Start with stop 6 on the blue or green line to discover the Ile de la Cité, at the foot of Notre Dame Cathedral. You’ll savor every moment of this amazing historical experience. Let yourself be soothed by the ringing of the bells, and admire the immensity of the monument. Stroll a short distance up the Seine to visit the Conciergerie and the Palais de Justice. The Pont Neuf bridge will take you directly to the Quai du Louvre. True romantics won’t want to miss the Pont des Arts bridge.
But to round out your Parisian experience, taking the Batobus shuttle up the river to the Eiffel Tower is the icing on the cake. There’s a stop for boarding right in front of the Louvre Museum. Why not taking the opportunity to have lunch while you’re there?
