About History Tours in Paris in Paris
Each city has its inescapable treasures but Paris abounds with them. Towers, churches, palaces, bridges... Paris is known throughout the world for the beauty and variety of its monuments.
Of course, Paris wouldn’t be Paris without the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre-Dame, the Sainte Chapelle or the Sacré Coeur. But Paris is also a mix of ambiances and cultures: little streets, squares and parks that are worth a visit as well.
A photo with the Eiffel Tower in the background; sitting down in one of the Louvre benches for 15 minutes and looking around; an early walk on the Champs Elysées when the city just woke up; an hour of exercise going up and down the stairs of the Sacré Coeur; a boat tour on the Seine at night; and a visit to the Rodin Museum.
Walking on the Champs Elysées at an early time is always a good place to start, make up your way to the Parc Monceau which would lead you to the Sacré Coeur if you go towards Pigalle, the red light district and home to the infamous Moulin Rouge. This walk should take a few hours--and you now deserve a coffee or a glass of wine in one of Montmartre's cafés.
Great views from the Centre Georges Pompidou and from the 56th floor of the Tour Montparnasse.
