Save Time and Money

With so much to do in Paris it’s hard to fit everything in. Cross two landmarks off your list in one day with this Supersaver tour and free up the rest of your trip to take in the magic of the rest of the city.

Description

Plan a full day of the very best of Paris and save money to boot when you embark on this double-the-fun and double-the-drama tour. From the Île de la Cité to the Mona Lisa, this guided tour combines two must-see locations for a day to remember.

Beginning in the heart of the city, where Paris was founded, you and your group of no more than 25 will take a short walking tour of this special island and enjoy the sights, sounds and people of the Île de la Cité. Stroll along the Seine River and breathe in the Paris magic as you spot landmarks such as the Conciergerie, Marie Antoinette's prison before her execution in 1793.

Your English-speaking guide will lead you straight to the famed Cathedral of Notre Dame, a historical landmark made famous (and possibly saved from destruction) by Victor Hugo’s classic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame. You’ll hear about the 200 years of construction (from 1163 to 1345), about the monumental task of creating something that had never been done and about the details of the extraordinary façade. You’ll enter the church to admire the spectacular 14th century stained glass windows before being swept past the line to ascend the cathedral towers to take in amazing views of the city… and maybe a few gargoyles.

With Notre Dame complete, your guide will point you in the right direction for a quick lunch and time to rest before part two begins. Paris landmark number two awaits just a short walk away, where it houses more than one million pieces of art under its roof. Once again you’ll skip the long lines and crowds to enter the famed Louvre for a curated tour of its most celebrated inhabitants. Gaze at the Venus de Milo and Winged Victory of Samothrace as well as Michelangelo’s 'Slaves' and, of course, the famed and mysterious Mona Lisa. Allow our expert City Wonders guides to bring these works of art to life with backstories, facts and knowledge the way only a true art aficionado can.

This unique combination of art, architecture and pure Parisian history makes for a truly special experience within the City of Light, making the most of your day and saving you money. Most importantly though, the memories created, and insights gained, at these iconic sights will stay with you long after you bid farewell to Paris.

This was a great tour with Laura! She was very knowledgeable and approachable. It felt like we were taking a tour with a good friend. She was very versed in the history of Paris. Laura pointed out so many key points but one of my favorites was in Dauphin Square. Thanks!
