Taking tours to Paris can be very educational and enjoyable as well. When
taking a tour they are already planned out for you and sometimes you will
have a guide to tell you about each stop you make along the way.

One of the most important stops you may have on a tour is the La Louvre.
Take a walk around the outside and you will see as much as you would when
going inside. Notice the fountain standing at the front entrance with the
walkway going around it. Inside the La Louvre, you will be able to see
the one and only La Pyramid. Check out the shape. At night when it is,
all lit up you will see beauty you will never forget. Looking out of the
Louvre you can see the Buran Statues in the Paris Royal.

Go inside the Pyramid and you will see the winding staircase going
straight to the top. Get a haircut while inside at one of the many
salons.

Visit the Palasis Royal and see most beautiful fountain Le Jardin des
Tuileries. The Place de la Concorde is in the same area. Visit them at
night and see the beautiful lighthouses and fountains all around them.
Another great place to go is the Les Champs-Elysees at night where an
archway stands with trees lining both sides of the street to the
entrance; ride a train or drive through the arch.

Want to see the famous Montmarte Cabaret of Moulin Roughe. It is a huge
building with the great windmill sitting on the rood.

You can also visit Paris from the sky by flying over the Seine River. See
the fantastic view over the rooftops. Take a boat ride down the River and
see the Passer Elle des Arts known as the Lover’s meeting place. The view
down the River is out of this world with everything lit up drawing
everyone’s attention. The Eiffel tower is located on the Seine River as
well and when passing you can enjoy the many fountains all around it.

When taking your tour down the river notice the water level, it is 30
feet below the street. The river is lined with walls of stone with ivy
growing through in places; the walls have iron rings hanging on the walls
to represent the past ages. On each side of the river, it has many trees
and shrubs and up on the street more trees looking over the river. There
are 32 bridges crossing over the Seine River with old buildings and
riverboats between them. Look at the water while taking your tour down
the river and notice the beautiful colors coming from the buildings and
trees with some gardens here and there.

Paris is the capital of France and is over 2,000 years old sitting on an
island off the Seine River. The island is 233 miles from the English
Channel.

Have you ever wanted to see the L’Hotel de Cluny in the Notre Dame area?
The hotel was built to house the monks when coming from Cluny to visit
the capital. The L’Hotel de Cluny was turned into a museum in 1844
representing the Medieval France.
Stand outside and look at the beautiful cross-windows in the front and
the others are all done in Gothic style. Inside the hotel, you will see
many tapestries done in the 15th and 16 century

Visit the great Chapel while on your tour of the Seine River. Inside the
Chapel, you will see more tapestries of the Lady and the unicorn of the
16th century, which will inspire you to learn more about Paris.
