Paris Tours and Attractions

Visitors to the exciting and romantic city of Paris can be overwhelmed by all there is to see and do.

When planning a trip to Paris, whether you are going on a family vacation or a romantic weekend away, you will want to see the sites, museums and attractions which have made this city so famous.

There is so much to do and see in Paris, being not only the most romantic city in the world but also the Capital of France.  Trying to determine what to see and where can go can be daunting if you’ve never visited the area before.  Trying to take yourself on tours can leave you frustrated and exhausted.

Guided tours aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, but a little help is always appreciated.  Most hotels offer tour advice and are willing to help you as much as they can, but there are ways to book tours that are guaranteed to make your stay an enjoyable one.

The Les Car Rouges is an open air double decker bus that offers a hop-on-hop-off service to nine major stop off points, including Notre-Dame, Champs Elysees-Etoile and Grand Palais.  Once you purchase your ticket it is valid for two days, perfect for a weekend break and you even get a 10% reduction if you purchase your tickets online.

The Les Car Rouges has a bus every ten minutes in summer and every twenty minutes in winter and they are running seven days a week, which makes this an easy tour option.  The full sightseeing trip without getting off takes a little over two hours and you can enjoy the multi-lingual pre-recorded commentaries as you are driven around the beautiful city.

Take a river cruise on the Seine and enjoy sightseeing tours with champagne tasting or a lunch or dinner cruise as you soak up the magnificent sights.

There are bus tours you can take at night that will take you around the city to view the magnificent illuminations and end your evening with the outstanding Moulin Rouge show.

Limo Tours are a great choice for the romantic couple as you take a private tour to view the city at night with its bright lights as you sip your champagne in sheer luxury.

If you are staying in the romantic city for a few days and want to see as much as possible, the best choice for you is the Paris Pass.  This pass gives you free entry into over 55 museums and it also gives you free entry into Paris attractions including Seine river cruises and wine tastings.  You get free unlimited bus or metro travel, free bus tours with Les Cargo Rouges and a 120+ page guidebook to help you determine what you want to see during your holiday.  You also get special offers from shops and restaurants in Paris to make your stay more enjoyable.

Bear in mind when purchasing a Paris Pass that all the state museums are free to visitors under 26 years old, so be sure to carry your proof of identification with you when visiting these sites.

While Paris is the most romantic and one of the most beautiful cities in the world, there are so many things to do and see that trying to determine the best sites on your own and how to get to them can leave you frustrated, take a tour that is not guided and you are in full control to enjoy the sites you don’t want to miss
