Day 1: ARRIVE IN PARIS
Guided tour of Paris including Arc de Triomphe, The Notre Dame Cathedral, Concorde Square, The Invalids, The Opera Garnier, and the Champs Elysees, Eiffel Tower II Level,.
Paris is unique in that it is a major global city -- home to more than 10 million people in the greater region -- yet it manages to synthesize the rhythms of village life with those of a cosmopolitan world capital. Although the city is a center of European commerce, many shops are closed on Sundays, leaving time for lazy brunches or shopping excursions at a local market. Paris is the capital of fashion, art, and people-watching; a city where Chanel-clad ladies walk poodles along grand boulevards; a place where the waiters might be rude but the food is délicieux. Paris is all of that and more. Upon your arrival meet our experienced tour manager at the arrival hall.
