The 20 arrondissements of Paris are home to some of France’s finest real estate, including the majestic Notre-Dame cathedral, eternally popular Eiffel Tower, the Palace of Versailles and The Louvre. A guided tour can be the best way to see them, especially as many Parisian attractions generate lengthy admission queues.
There’s no need to limit yourself to the main attractions in order to see Paris, with plenty of boutique tours focusing instead on niche subjects. Some, such as walking tours of specific arondissements, help you explore districts like the fabulously artistic Montmartre. Others, such as a scooter tour of the Left Bank, weave along the banks of the River Seine which dissects the city.
Paris rightly enjoys a reputation as one of the world’s culinary capitals, and food tours of the city are a popular means of sampling some authentic French cuisine. If traipsing the boulevards doesn’t take your fancy, why not try a French cooking class instead, pairing it with some of the world-class French wines the country is renowned for?
Guided tours of the grandiloquent Palace of Versailles are perhaps the best way to make sense of the former seat of the French monarchy, while a historic site of an entirely different kind is the infamous Moulin Rouge – that famous 18th arrondissement cabaret responsible for the development of the can-can – which still hosts cabarets to this day.
