Day 2: Royal Versailles

Half-Day Private Guided Tour the Château of Versailles

Your English-speaking licensed driver-guide will pick you up at your hotel for transfers to and from Versailles. A stone’s throw from Paris, Versailles is perhaps the greatest symbol of France’s monarchy. It is a lavish, extravagant place. The skip-the-line pass lets you avoid the long lines in the high season, gain some time, and avoid stress.

Visit the unrivaled Hall of Mirrors, stop in the Royal Chapel, and visit the King and Queen’s Royal Apartments. The Royal Opera, constructed entirely from wood, is a sight to behold. It features some spectacular acoustics and is still in use to this day. The fountains and gardens, Europe’s largest royal gardens, are particularly impressive.

With a bit of history, a touch of sociology, tongue-in-cheek humor, and a heavy dose of gastronomy this is a truly unique Parisian experience.

The tour doesn’t end in the car though! It also includes a Seine River cruise to see the city from a different perspective. Glide under the iconic Pont Neuf. Keep your eyes peeled for some of the most iconic landmarks in Paris including the Louvre, the Tuileries Garden, the Orsay Museum, the Grand Palais, the Trocadero, and the Conciergerie.

Day 5: Paris - Free Day


Explore the museum, go shopping, or enjoy a Michelin-star restaurant.

Suggestion: Self-Guided Visit of the Latin Quarter

The Latin Quarter is one of Paris’ best-known areas. It was once the center of the Roman city Lutetia, which became the metropolis we know today.

It contains the famous Sorbonne University and the concentration of students means lots of bookshops and a lively intellectual scene. Students have been here seemingly forever. Since the Middle Ages, France’s finest universities were here. It was at the heart of the infamous May 1968 student protests.

Opposite the Sorbonne, the Hôtel de Cluny houses the Museum of the Middle Ages with the famous The Lady and the Unicorn tapestries. Nearby you can see the Gallo-Roman baths, dating from the first to the third centuries. At the summit of the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève, the Panthéon offers a fascinating blend of the past and present. France’s luminaries are immortalized here, but it’s a meeting place for young people.

On sunny days students study and gather in the neighboring Luxembourg Garden.

By day or night, the Latin Quarter is one of Paris’s liveliest districts. Visit the booksellers along the river banks, wander the historic little streets, and admire the mansions. This is where to go to be a part of an authentic Parisian life. There are numerous bars and restaurants in the area. The Les Deux Magots Café dates to 1812. It’s worth having a drink here to follow in the footsteps of Pablo Picasso, Ernest Hemingway, and Simone de Beauvoir for whom it was a favorite. Cinephiles will enjoy exploring here, as the Latin Quarter features prominently in many films.

On the other side of Place de la Concorde is the famous Champs-Elysées, the famous tree-lined boulevard features some of the city’s best shopping and dining. Window shop the world’s most prestigious fashion labels. Don’t just confine your shopping trip to the main strip, as there are many fine boutiques in the streets around the Champs-Elysées.
