After your arrival in the „city of love“ and check-in at your hotel, we recommend to take a walk to get a first impression of the numerous sights of this unique city: the Eiffel Tower – the city’s famous landmark – which was built between 1887 and 1899 and constructed in honor of the centennial celebration of the French Revolution; the new Palais de Chaillot, which was built in the classicizing modern style on a hill above the Seine in 1937 or the close-by Arc de Triomphe – another landmark of the city – which was constructed to honor French soldiers. From the Arc de Triomphe you can get a nice view of the Champs-Elysées. On this 1.5 mile (2 kilometer) long boulevard, parades take place annually.

After breakfast, your local guide will take you to get to know the capital of France in more detail: see the Sacré Coeur, a Romanesque-Byzantine basilica on top of Montmartre; the world-famous Moulin Rouge; Notre Dame, the cathedral that is one of the most important landmarks of the city and one of the most significant examples of French Gothic architecture; the Louvre, the famous museum that was built in the 12th century by King Philippe-Auguste and nowadays holds the world’s most renowned art; the cultural center Pompidou; the opera house, city hall and more. The afternoon is at your own disposal. How about an excursion to the castle of Versailles?
