Day 2: Paris Discovery Tour: Today you will get a chance to visit the major sites of Paris with a knowledable driver-guide. You will be taken from your hotel to the Notre-Dame Cathedral where you will have time to discover this gothic masterpiece. You will then make a stop at the Eiffel Tower with enough time for you to take your best photos. After the visit of the Eiffel Tower you will make your way to visit Montmartre to see the Sacre Coeur Basilica and the Place du Tertre.

The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 as the entrance arch to the 1889 World's Fair, since then it has become a global cultural icon of France. The tower stands 1,063 feet tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building. During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to assume the title of the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years, until the Chrysler Building in New York City was built in 1930.

Notre-Dame Cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture.

Montmartre is primarily known for the white-domed Basilica of the Sacre Coeur on its summit and as a nightclub district. The other, older, church on the hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded. Many artists had studios or worked around the community of Montmartre such as Salvador Dalí, Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh.


Day 3: On this morning you will take a Guided Visit of the Palace of Versailles. Let yourself be transported to the royal atmosphere of the Versailles palace and its famous French gardens. Combining classic and baroque architectural styles, the palace has been on the World Heritage list for 30 years. You will instantly feel the pomp and ceremony of King Louis XIV’s court: Versailles Hall of Mirrors, Grands Apartments and French gardens designed by Le Notre.

The licensed driver-guide invites you to experience the history of the Palace of Versailles which is one of the world's most famous monuments in France. You will enter through the group entrance and avoid the long line. Your guide will lead you through the most beautiful rooms, the State Apartments, the Hall of Mirrors and the Queen’s private Apartments. Free time is planned at the end of the tour for a walk in the French style gardens which are full of magnificent statues, busts and marble vases. Entrance tickets included (palace and gardens). Spend the rest of your day to go sightseeing on your own.
