Paris is one of the top places to visit in the world, boasting a variety of galleries, museums, cafes, restaurants and stunning architecture. It’s colloquially called the city of love, and upon arrival one can see why – romance is everywhere, from red gingham tablecloth cafes lit solely by candlesticks melting in wine bottles, to the seductive jazz that still emanates from late night bars. A day spent in Paris is not easily forgotten. What could be more perfect than wandering through the old artists quarter Montmartre, guzzling croissants in a traditional bistro, then meandering down the Rue de Rivoli to watch the sunset over the Seine.
It’s also a city rich with culture: the most famous galleries of the world, including the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay and Orangerie can be found here, as well a host of museums charting the city’s long, illustrious and often bloody history. Some of the greatest writers of the last centuries looked to the city for inspiration – Victor Hugo, Proust, Simone De Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre, as well as famous emigres including Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, F. Scott Fitzgerald. However, finding amazing tours of Paris can be difficult. With such a range of things to see, you need a tour that can be tailored to your personal experience.
