Taking tours to Paris can be very educational and enjoyable as well. When taking a tour they are already planned out for you and sometimes you will have a guide to tell you about each stop you make along the way.
One of the most important stops you may have on a tour is the La Louvre. Take a walk around the outside and you will see as much as you would when going inside. Notice the fountain standing at the front entrance with the walkway going around it. Inside the La Louvre, you will be able to see the one and only La Pyramid. Check out the shape. At night when it is, all lit up you will see beauty you will never forget. Looking out of the Louvre you can see the Buran Statues in the Paris Royal.
Go inside the Pyramid and you will see the winding staircase going straight to the top. Get a haircut while inside at one of the many salons.
Visit the Palasis Royal and see most beautiful fountain Le Jardin des Tuileries. The Place de la Concorde is in the same area. Visit them at night and see the beautiful lighthouses and fountains all around them. Another great place to go is the Les Champs-Elysees at night where an archway stands with trees lining both sides of the street to the entrance; ride a train or drive through the arch.
Want to see the famous Montmarte Cabaret of Moulin Rouge. It is a huge building with the great windmill sitting on the roof.
You can also visit Paris from the sky by flying over the Seine River. See the fantastic view over the rooftops. Take a boat ride down the River and see the Passer Elle des Arts known as the Lovers meeting place. The view down the River is out of this world with everything lit up drawing everyones attention. The Eiffel tower is located on the Seine River as well and when passing you can enjoy the many fountains all around it.
When taking your tour down the river notice the water level, it is about 9 meters (30 feet) below the street. The river is lined with walls of stone with ivy growing through in places; the walls have iron rings hanging on the walls to represent the past ages. On each side of the river, it has many trees and shrubs and up on the street more trees looking over the river. There are 32 bridges crossing over the Seine River with old buildings and riverboats between them. Look at the water while taking your tour down the river and notice the beautiful colors coming from the buildings and trees with some gardens here and there.
Paris is the capital of France and is over 2,000 years old sitting on an island off the Seine River. The island is 233 miles from the English Channel.
Have you ever wanted to see the Hotel de Cluny in the Notre Dame area? The hotel was built to house the monks when coming from Cluny to visit the capital. The Hotel de Cluny was turned into a museum in 1844 representing the Medieval France.
Stand outside and look at the beautiful cross-windows in the front and the others are all done in Gothic style. Inside the hotel, you will see many tapestries done in the 15th and 16 century
Visit the great Chapel while on your tour of the Seine River. Inside the Chapel, you will see more tapestries of the Lady and the unicorn of the 16th century, which will inspire you to learn more about Paris.
