Paris Landmarks – Right Bank Tour

Free tour. Pay what you want at the end of the tour

The Champs Elysées, the Louvre Museum, the Tuileries Gardens etc. : this orientation tour is designed for discovering the landmarks dreamt up by the creators of the city of light – the Sun-King, Napoleon and other royalty.

The Tour

We start at the Paris opera – the inspiration for “Phantom of the Opera” and for many buildings around the world, including the USA, Argentina and Australia.

We explore must-see attractions like place Vendome or hotel Ritz, we gaze at some of the world’s most sophisticated jewelry stores, step into the nexus of every Fashion Week, and glimpse into secretive courtyards.

We explore the personality of this neighborhood so symbolic of Paris, and learn the secrets behind these elegant old stones.

The finale is one of Paris’ greatest photo spots – place de la Concorde and its 360° view.

Highlights

  • Arc de Triumph, Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysées and Sacré Coeur/Montmartre photo opportunities
  • The haunts of Coco Chanel, Hemingway and Princess Di, and the Texas Embassy (that’s right!)
  • Place Vendôme – where owning a store is a haughty statement and every shop window is worth over €1 million
  • Some of the world’s most exclusive, most acclaimed hotels – Crillon, Meurice, Ritz and now Mandarin Oriental
  • Do not miss Louvre, Orsay and the Orangerie – three of the world’s greatest museums
  • Our short walk takes us from the Paris Opera to the Concorde, where the guillotine took the life of King Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette, and where today Tour de France runs its grand finale.
