Paris Highlights: From Louvre Museum to Notre Dame

Join a small group or a private tour to cover the highlights of Paris with its major places of interest, sites, bridges, palaces, and parks together with the Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre Museum. Your guide will offer you a comprehensive view of the history and culture of Paris for first-time and returning visitors alike. 

Start your journey in front of  Comédie Française and the gardens of the Palais Royal, a former royal palace, just opposite the Louvre. Learn about the building and its park with their history, architecture, and importance to the modern Parisian city culture.

Pass by the Louvre Museum and see some of the exhibition rooms from the outside. Follow your guide to the Pyramid of Louvre, easily the most popular place to be in Paris. Enjoy a detailed tour of the area with less emphasis on history and the art inside the museum but more on the local street life of Paris so that you can see the most important landmarks without waiting to get tickets while experiencing the local culture.

Once at the Pyramid, observe the Tuileries Garden connecting the Louvre to the Place de la Concorde. It is a place where Parisians celebrate and meet. Look how the setting served as a reference point for the modern development of Paris. See the historical axis of the two Arc de Triomphe’s of the town and Champs-Elysées. Learn how the monuments stand in harmony with their modern setting. These unique masterpieces of architecture combine different orders and styles most innovatively and have influenced art and culture for many years.

Then stay a while in the Square Court (Cour Carré) the place where The Louvre was born, a jewel of Renaissance architecture.

Follow the River Seine and go across the famous Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge listed as a national historic monument. See the art exhibitions, and immerse in the open-air studio for painters, artists, and photographers drawn to its unique point of view. Watch the Parisiens enjoying a summer picnic if you are there in the season.

Your local guide will talk about the most famous characters of Paris in history, its most significant turn points, political highlights, and how several certain events in the city’s history are all connected to make up what we all adore as Paris today.

Getting close to Notre Dame Cathedral,  learn about the Île de la Cité and the surprising facts that this island will offer you. Talk about Notre Dame and discuss the impacts of the recent fire and the future of the building. 

Immerse yourself in the very atmosphere, history, and culture of this glorious French city with an exceptional local guide.  It’s a great walk to enjoy the local life in Paris and see people in their everyday heyday.

Leave your guide Notre-Dame Cathedral with many references and recommendations for Paris so that you can be independent after this tour.
