Paris is an iconic city of romance stemming from an ambiance of sweet confections, luscious dinners, and photogenic cobblestone streets. Essential Paris retains the dreamy mixture of luxury and passion, secluded beauty and endless artwork matched only by the prestige of the fashionable boutiques and tree-lined avenues. Your flight lands at Charles de Gaulle Airport, where your private transfer greets you upon arrival. The city shimmers during the day with light reflecting against the River Seine. Your guide greets you in the comforts of your hotel and leads you into the grandeur of Paris for a private tour ending at the marvels of the Eifel Tower.
The renowned image of Paris was erected in 1889 as the entrance of the World’s Fair Exhibition. The masterful architecture continues to tower above the lawn along the Champs de Mars standing approximately 1007 feet tall. Seeing the Eifel Tower in person has an indelible romantic charm welcoming you to Paris. In the evening, you step aboard a quiet boat on the River Seine and set sail for a dinner cruise. The city shines alongside the banks reflecting in the rippling waters highlighting the shape of the Louvre Museum with the Eifel Tower in the background. The scent of butter, champagne, and rosemary fill the dining room as you toast to a majestic first day in Paris.
