    • Fall in love with the City of Love

      Prepare to be dazzled by the City of Light’s most iconic landmarks on the Paris Highlights Bike Tour. Ride in style through Europe’s cultural capital, with stops at the Eiffel Tower, Tsar Alexander III Bridge, Les Invalides, the Louvre Museum, the River Seine, Place de la Concorde, Tuileries Gardens and the Palais Royal.

      There's no better way to begin a city tour of Paris than an introduction to the French capital's most iconic monument: the Eiffel Tower. Although its image is recognizable worldwide, nothing beats gazing up at it for yourself from the Champ de Mars. Ride on to the Tsar Alexander III Bridge, a masterpiece of Beaux-Arts architecture that spans the Seine, and smile at the cherubs and nymphs that dance upon its stately arches as you cycle by.

      Pedaling on, you'll spot the gold leaf dome of Les Invalides glinting in the distance. Stop to marvel at the epic proportions and dignified grandeur of these buildings, containing many museums and monuments. You'll make a visit to Napoleon's tomb, where your guide will recount the Emperor's fateful final days, and the eventual completion of his mighty sarcophagus two decades after his death.

      The guided tour rides on to the Louvre, home of the Mona Lisa and the most visited museum in the world. Admire the iconic glass pyramids that mark its entrance as your guide describes its labyrinthine layout and the millions of masterpieces within. Take a peaceful turn along the Seine, observing how the character and skyline of the city changes between arrondissements, before stopping for a snack mid-tour.

      With your energy levels replenished, you'll continue sightseeing at the Place de la Concorde. This is the largest square in Paris, and was the site of many notable public executions during the French Revolution. Your guide will recount the bloody history of the plaza in detail, transporting you to another time in Paris's checkered past. You'll also visit the elegant Place Vendôme, where you'll get a taste of Parisian glamor as you cruise past its luxury jewelry shops and opulent hotels.

      You'll then ride to the picturesque Tuileries Gardens, whose graceful symmetry and statuesque decoration are proof that in Paris, even parks are sophisticated. Finally, your trip will arrive at the Palais Royal, where your guide will beguile you with its history as residence of the Sun King and stage for the most scandalous affair in French history.

      Along the route, your guide will also point out smaller streets and bustling squares to explore when your day tour is finished, and will always be able to recommend local cafes, shops and restaurants for an authentic taste of Parisian lifestyle. In addition to bike rental, this family-friendly bicycle tour ticket includes a Seine River Cruise ticket, to redeem at any point during your city break.
