You will also experience Paris like a local; we will show you the epicurean side of this gourmet mecca; teach you the art of being a Parisian Flâneur while strolling through the exclusive residential streets on Ile St-Louis, the old Jewish quarter in the Marais, the former art colony of Montmartre, the medieval streets of the Latin Quarter, or to Left Bank cafes made famous by poets and philosophers.

We welcome you to Paris! Relax and unwind after your journey or join your Travel Leader for a “Neighborhood Orientation” walk.

Your Tour Leader will fill you in on some of the world’s most recognized monuments.
Today we will become Parisian Flâneurs as we stroll the exclusive residential streets of Île St-Louis and extraordinary Île de la Cité, an oasis from the rush of the city that remains romantically frozen in the 17th century. Here we can visit the island’s focal point the Cathedral of Notre Dame, arguably the most stunning gothic cathedral in the world—and undoubtedly the most famous. As we continue, we will admire the beauty of the Seine and the bridges that connect Rive Gauche to Rive Droite. We will stop along the way to admire the Conciergerie, a former prison that housed Marie Antoinette before her execution. It will also be a treat to visit the small, uncrowded residential park known as the Place Dauphine which has managed to avoid being overrun by masses of tourists. We will conclude our day as Parisian Flâneurs exploring from the alleys of the Latin Quarter to the grand boulevards of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Odéon.

Followed by a walk down the 7th arrondissements most picturesque streets before we make our way one of our favorite market – Rue Cler.

On this day we will be taking the train to the flower-filled village of Giverny and the home of its famous resident Claude Monet. You will understand why these places inspired the leader of Impressionism. You will step on the famous Japanese bridge and walk around the water lily pond to observe the ever-changing reflections on the water surface. Then you will stroll across the Clos Normand, the colorful flower garden blooming from spring to fall. Monet himself landscaped it by applying his sense of composition, perspective, and colors to gardening.
The rest of the afternoon is free to explore this quaint village. Not far from Monet’s former residence is the Museum of Impressionisms (Musee des Impessionismes) dedicated to the different forms of impressionist paintings. Built into the landscape, the museum mimics the natural beauty of the surrounding area.
Today we will take a walking tour of the art-filled colorful village of Montmartre. Discover Montmartre’s unique character and winding cobblestone paths from artists studios through terraced gardens, from the oldest vineyard in Paris to antique windmills, sharing with you the amazing stories of residents past and present. During this exploration, we will learn why famous artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh, Renoir, and Toulouse-Lautrec loved and made this area their home. Once at the top of the hill you’ll enjoy the picturesque views of the Basilica of Sacré Coeur and the panoramic view over all of Paris. There’s no better way to explore this village within Paris. After we will make our way the Hôtel de Ville, the hidden village of St. Paul, meander through Le Marais’ dizzying network of hidden courtyards, provocative galleries, and ivy-covered boulangeries before ending our day in what many consider to be the most beautifully built square in Paris, Place des Vosges.
For an off-the-beaten-path treat, take some time to discover the Canal Saint-Martin neighborhood. This hidden gem may not be one of the most recognizable quarters of Paris, but it exudes a sense of elegant leisure that is oh-so-French. In addition to the beauty of the canal, this neighborhood is also known for its quirky shops, boutiques, and restaurants.
