• A WEEKEND GUIDE 
    TO PARIS

WHAT TO SEE

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower’s first floor has a glass floor that extends 57 meters from the ground, and the second floor offers aspiring photographers even more stunning 360-degree views of the city. For a romantic Eiffel tower visit, take a Skip the Line Eiffel Tower Tour and sip on a cocktail at the champagne bar on the top floor. For a more casual daytime experience, make a lunch reservation at the 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant. We have numerous options for exploring the Eiffel Tower that you can view here.

 

Les Invalides

Located in the 7th arrondissement and a lovely walk from the Eiffel Tower is Hôtel des Invalides. Founded in 1671 by Louis XIV for disabled and impoverished war veterans. If you are interested in the military history of France, this complex includes several military museums as well as the Dôme des Invalides which is a large church and burial site for Napoléon Bonaparte. We make sure to stop in front and learn the amazing history of Les Invalides on our Day Segway Tour and Day Bike Tour.

Seine River

Locals often refer to attractions along the Seine as being on the Left and Right Banks, which is determined by the direction you face when standing downriver. When it comes to having a quintessential Parisian experience, there is little that could rival a picnic along the Quai or Les Burges des Seine. Other ways to enjoy the Seine would be a Seine River Cruise or enjoy complimentary wine and watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle on our Night Bike Tour.

Tuileries Garden

The Tuileries Garden is a lovely spot located in the heart of the city between the Louvre Museum and Place de la Concorde. There are plenty of benches and quintessential green chairs to sit in the sunshine and relax after lots of walking or biking. You can enjoy coffee while sitting next to the pond or enjoy lunch in the café nestled amongst the trees on our Day Bike Tour. The garden hits full potential in spring and summer but the Tuileries is a great place to take it all in regardless of the time of year.

 

Versailles Chateau

The Palace of Versailles is one of the most spectacular examples of the grandeur of 18th century French art and architecture. Visitors to Versailles get a glimpse of the lavish lifestyles of the French kings and queens by touring the palace, their personal estates, and the grounds' immaculate acreage. Our Versailles Bike Tour has grown every single year, as the demand from guests gets larger and larger. In recent years we have developed even more Versailles activities that help guests skip long lines and earn access to the most VIP areas.

Marais Neighborhood

Travelers often say to us, "We want to stay near the center so where should we stay?" We recommend the Marais for more reasons than ideal location. It's a romantic area with winding streets and vintage shopping as if you have time traveled. The vibrant neighborhood is full of old-world Parisian charm, fabulous places to eat, and miscellaneous museums.

Notre Dame

People visit this cathedral from all over the world to see one of the most beautiful and well-preserved examples of French Gothic architecture. Some of the highlights of the Notre Dame de Paris are the stained-glass windows, organ, furniture, bells, clock, paintings, and cathedral figures. Visitors are welcome to attend mass at the main altar at several times during weekends and weekdays. Visitors can also climb 387 steps to the top of the cathedral’s south tower, where panoramic views of the city can be seen on our Skip the Line Notre Dame Towers & Sainte-Chapelle Tour.

 

Louvre

The Louvre is the largest museum in the world and is home to some of the most famous works of art in history. Visitors can marvel at paintings, including Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” sculptures, drawings, prints, and decorative arts. The entrance to the museum is located at the Pyramid, Galerie du Carrousel, and Passage Richelieu. Visitors can join our Skip the Line - Louvre Tour to bypass the long queues or Skip the Line Louvre Tour - Closing Time with the Mona Lisa for a VIP experience or the Skip the Line Louvre Ticket with Audio Guide.

WHAT TO DO

Picnic at the Champ de Mars

All of Paris is covered with perfect picnic locations but the Champ de Mars is a crowd favorite. Located in front of the Eiffel Tower making it awfully convenient to enjoy your baguette and cheese while admiring the Iron Lady. Now how is that for multi-tasking? Here are our picnic must have's: wine (you can go to any of the Nicholas stores), wine opener, baguette (you're probably thinking "duh!" but make sure to buy this right before you are going to eat it and ask for "Baguette Traditional"), cheese, saucisson sec, and strawberries.

Eiffel Tower Tour

Our guide will take you straight to the second level while discussing the history, architecture, and fascinating stories about the Tower. And we don't take just anyone on our tours; our group size is limited so that you can be assured of a great personal experience. Tickets to the third floor are included in this product, so after your tour you are free to go right to the top of the tower to explore the Summit at your leisure. See all of our Eiffel Tower options here.

 

Night Bike Tour

Here is the line-up for the evening... Bike through the Latin Quarter and witness the best nightlife in town. Ride around the Île de la Cité, along the river and enjoy ice cream at Berthillon (the most famous ice cream shop in Paris). Cross over the picnic-filled Pont des Arts bridge and enjoy the sunset over the Paris rooftops. See the Louvre as never before and relax onboard a boat cruise on the Seine. Did we mention free wine is provided on the boat?
