Paris Tours 

Paris is known as the “City of Light”. The origin of this name comes from the Middle Ages which was the period of enlightenment. It is also known as the Capital of Fashion, which is no surprise when one thinks of all those famous French designers. This beautiful and romantic city, in many respects, resembles an outdoor museum with its attractive and elegant architecture and wide boulevards. In fact, a large section of the centre of the city has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Paris is made up of 20 districts called Arrondissements, each one giving a different perspective to the city. The meandering River Seine dissects the city and adds enormously to the character and beauty of travel to Paris. 

Paris Trip Highlights

Paris’s principal boulevard is the elegant Champs-Élyées which cuts through the centre of the city with the iconic Arc de Triomphe located at one end and the Place de La Concorde at the other. Paris boasts several beautiful parks such as the Bois de Boulogne and the Bois de Vincennes, the two most extensive ones. In the centre of the city are three smaller but charming parks, the Tuileries which border onto the Louvre, the Jardin du Luxembourg on the left bank and the delightful if small Place des Vosges surrounded by lovely houses and cafes, all to be enjoyed on Paris tours. 

Food and Shopping 

Two excellent reasons to enjoy Paris have nothing to do with its popular tourist attractions. Enjoying a taste of Parisian culinary prowess is a must whether it is just sitting at an outside café watching the world go by with coffee and a croissant, or enjoying a meal at one of the vast number of quality restaurants that abound here. Excellent shopping opportunities can also be found not only in big Paris department stores such as the Galerie Lafayette, but in the many boutique shops that can be found everywhere on Paris tours. 

Museums 

There are many must-see attractions and iconic sights to explore on a France vacation. For culture buffs, the Louvre Museum would be an excellent starting point. It is one of the largest and most important museums in the world and is housed in the expansive Louvre Palace, situated in the 1st Arrondissement, with over 1 million works of art including the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. The Musee d’Orsay used to be a century old railway station, the Gare d’Orsay and was converted into an art gallery in 1986. When it opened the museum contained some 2300 paintings, 1500 sculptures and 1000 other objects. Most of these works of art came from other museums but over time, the collection has expanded and covers a period from the mid-nineteenth Century. It contains works by many important Impressionist painters such as Degas, Rodin, Monet, Manet, Renoir, Cezanne, van Gogh and others. 

Two other museums of note are the Rodin Museum dedicated to the sculptor, Augustus Rodin and the Pompidou Centre devoted to contemporary art and design.

Attractions 

Towering over the city is the Eiffel Tower which can be seen from almost anywhere in Paris. The tower rises to a height of 300 metres/984 feet and was completed at the end of the Nineteenth Century. Another major landmark visible from most of Paris is the round domed Sacre Coeur Basilica located on a hill in the atmospheric Montmartre district, also well worth a visit on a France vacation with its many street artists and cafes. Then of course, there is the Gothic style Notre Dame Cathedral located on the River Seine and dating back hundreds of years. 

The list of attractions goes on and on but too numerous to mention in one page. However, time should be allotted to visit at least one of the two major and elegant historical palaces situated just outside the city on travel to Paris, Versailles and Fontainebleau, past homes of French royalty.

Extend your Stay

Consider an additional stopover to your France Tours on one of Goway's other European tours. You can allso choose from a London vacation, an Amsterdam vacation or a Belgium vacation. This can be done stopping over en route to or from France.
