Greet your guide and small group in Montmartre, and ride the funicular to Basilique du Sacré-Coeur to soak up stunning views of the city. Stop off at a reconstructed windmill, the art square Place du Tertre, and a neighborhood vineyard that’s one of Paris’ hidden gems.
Board the metro for Ile de la Cité, the island where it all began, and explore outside of Notre Dame Cathedral; you'll get the best views possible of its restoration.
Take a break for lunch (own expense), before heading to the Louvre Museum where you use skip-the-line tickets to enter and dive in to its priceless art collection, including Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
Hop back on the subway to the Eiffel Tower, and skip the long line to climb to the second level for more spectacular Paris views.
Afterward, cross the river into the Latin Quarter with its gothic churches and winding, cobbled streets, ending at Place Saint-Michel. View the Conciergerie, Place Dauphine, and the famous Pont Neuf bridge.
Your guide leaves you with a ticket for a Seine cruise: Choose to use it at sunset or save it for the next day.
