Paris – Arrive in Paris with a Romantic Sunset Tour of the Eiffel Tower
Paris is a city of light and romance that crosses the banks of the famed River Seine. The famous gargoyles and spires of the Notre-Dame cathedral capture the inspiration of Victor Hugo’s passionate epic The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. The covered passageways retain a dramatic sense of 19th century Paris reflected in the charming window displays that showcase delicious chocolates, elegant boutiques, and seductive cafes filling the walkways with the aroma of fresh macarons. Your flight lands at Charles de Gaulle Airport, where your private transfer will greet you upon arrival and escort you into the heart of the city.
The beauty of Paris welcomes you immediately with quaint book vendors and artists that line the Left Bank of the Seine River. Your guide will greet you at the hotel and escort you to the Champs de Mars, a large field once used for military training and marching grounds. The green space also held the World’s Fair in 1889, for which the Eiffel Tower was built. The iconic French structure acted as the gateway to the fair and a model of French engineering ingenuity. As it reaches 1,063 feet tall, it was the world’s tallest human-made structure until 1930.
Walk the 360 steps to the first level for a moderate view of Paris before you continue to the breathtaking top floor for a remarkable panoramic view of the spirited city at sunset. The clear sky allows you views that extend over 43 miles. You’ll notice that the staggering height of Notre-Dame’s 230-foot tall tower looks tiny below. The marvelous sunset over the city brings brushstrokes of orange and pink across the sky before the streets glow and provide a new understanding for Paris’s nickname as the City of Lights.
