Why You Shouldn’t Miss This
Both the Louvre and the Notre Dame are iconic tourist destinations. The Louvre is home to one of the most expansive collections of art in the world. The collection includes the notably famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci, but also includes other art work from several other time periods. The collection includes artefacts from the Egyptian, Roman, Greek, Mesopotamian, and Islamic civilizations. Every room you enter is an experience in the heritage of a particular period in history or a specific civilization. The Notre Dame is a very old Church at the heart of Paris and is considered one of its most important landmarks. When you visit the Notre Dame, you can admire its stunning Gothic architecture and stained-glass panels. The end of the tour takes you on a cruise that allows you to experience the beauty of Paris from the river Seine. Enjoy views of the Eiffel tower and the bridges that connect Paris. While Paris is itself considered a romantic city, there is very little that can beat the beautiful sights this cruise offers.
Once you join the tour, you will be guided to all the destinations that are a part of the tour. Your tour guide will accompany you at each destination and offer you context and history for everything you see. Once you are done visiting both the Notre Dame and the Louvre, you will be escorted to the boat for the cruise. The tour ends with a cruise down the Seine that offers you some spectacular views of Paris’s most famous monuments.
