Enjoy the sights of France’s Capital from the top deck of an open top double-decker bus
The romance, the elegance, the beauty - Paris is a dream that you'll be living during your stay. See the cobbled streets of the Left Bank, the Napoleonic splendour of the Ecole Militaire and of course the structure that they thought wouldn't last more than a few years - the Eiffel Tower! Take time out to explore the Paris you've been looking for on an open top bus tour; historical, romantic, fashionable, fun and shopper friendly. Hop off at the Champ de Mars, or Field of Mars, a vast lawn area with wide walking paths crossing scenic lawns. The borders of the park are lined with a variety of trees and flowering shrubs and beautiful flowerbeds can be found throughout the park. The park is named after the Campus Martius in Rome, a tribute to the Roman god of war. The most prominent feature in the garden is the Eiffel Tower, one of the most famous and visible icons of Paris. The Tower is an iron lattice tower built in 1889 by Gustave Eiffel and at 324 metres it’s the tallest building in Paris and one of the most visited monuments in the world. Journey up the Tower for breath-taking views which are particularly enjoyable at sunset. Hop off at The Musee du Louvre, originally a royal fortress, where several hours can be spent exploring the world renowned museum which houses 35,000 works of art.
