The tour begins at Sainte-Genevieve Hill, a popular student hangout that offers spellbinding views of the Pantheon. After admiring one of Paris’ most impressive structures, it is time to head to the peaceful sanctuary of Luxembourg Gardens, the perfect place to escape the flurry of the city.
Next it is time to explore an area of Paris loved by the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Jim Morrison. Oozing with creativity, Saint-Germain is a vibrant, artistic hub. Experience its quirky vibes first hand as you peruse colourful street markets and trendy cafes.
The tour then heads to the tranquil banks of the River Seine. Follow the river to reach a traditional wine store. Along with a glass (or two) of wine, you can enjoy the delights of French charcuterie, featuring salty meats and indulgent cheeses.
Then it is time to show off your skills with a game of petanque in the nearby square. A sport close to the French heart, you will no doubt be given a stream of game tips from passing locals.
Next you will visit the first English bookshop in Paris. Nestled inside a medieval house amidst the bustle of Saint-Michel, dip your nose into a good book and let your imagination wander.
The tour ends outside Paris’ iconic landmark, the gargoyled Notre Dame Cathedral. Bid farewell to your guide with this stunning architectural backdrop, before continuing your exploration of this eclectic capital city.
