Itinerary

 Day 1 - Arrival

Independent arrival in Paris.
Overnight in Paris.

 Day 2 - The Heart of Paris tour

This tour centers around Ile de la Cité, the tiny island on the Seine River that's considered the birthplace of modern-day Paris. It's here that a small Celtic settlement created over 2000 years ago grew to become one of the most beautiful cities in the world. You'll start the tour with a delightful stroll along the Seine, seeing lovely sights and learning about Paris' history. Along the way, you'll see the Pont Neuf, the oldest bridge in Paris, and the enchanting Place Dauphine.
You'll also explore the atmospheric streets of the Latin Quarter before reaching the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral. It's still being restored after the fire that hit it but can be admired from close enough to appreciate its beauty. Among the highlights of this tour is Sainte Chappelle, the sacred building erected by Louis IX to house his relic collection and widely regarded as Paris' most stunning church. Your skip-the-line ticket will quickly get you inside, where grand vaulted ceilings and mesmerizing stained glass windows depicting biblical stories await you. After the visit, the tour ends with a scenic river cruise to admire Paris from a unique angle. Overnight in Paris.
