The City of Love is famous for more than its romantic allure. Awash with architectural landmarks, mesmerizing art and charming cheeses, Paris has it all. The Heart of Paris is a tour that uncovers the very essence of this captivating city.
Your journey begins at the epicentre of Parisian fashion and luxury. Window shop to your heart’s delight as you wander past some of the city’s chicest shops, before popping into a food store for a spot of indulgence. Sample a mouthwateringly sweet macaroon, a French specialty.
Next head on to the acclaimed Louvre, home to some of the world’s most celebrated works of art. The tour does not venture in, as you need several hours free to absorb these artistic treasures, but we will explore the building’s exterior and catch a glimpse of the celebrated sculpture gallery.
Then it is time to get a taste for local life, amidst the flurry of a Parisian market. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy the ultimate French delicacy – cheese! Choose from a vast selection of cheeses including the ‘King of Cheeses’, the super strong Roquefort.
After meandering through some of the secret arcades of the city discovering quirky boutiques and buildings, the tour enters the medieval district of Le Marais. This charismatic neighbourhood is brimming with patisseries, sweet shops and cafes, and gives a real insight into Parisian life.
The tour ends in the courtyard of the Pompidou Centre, a contemporary art gallery of outstanding architecture.
