Summary of The Day: Paris has certainly cornered the 'effortlessly cool' market, so why not join this Paris tour to infiltrate the scene? You'll walk the boho beat of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, sample wine, meat and cheese in a traditional wine house, and hit the park for a casual game of petanque (+ wine!) for the win.
Join a local guide to discover the enigmatic charms of France's capital on this enlightening Paris city tour that pairs secret local hangouts with delicious food and wine. We'll start at Sainte-Genevieve Hill, a popular spot with local uni students, boasting impressive views of the imposing Pantheon. Next, we'll stop in at the Luxembourg Gardens and soak up the romanticism of this quiet haven - a welcome break from Paris' busy streets.
Then we'll continue to the vibrant Saint-Germain area, a hot spot for writers, intellectuals, musicians, and artists. Full of eclectic cafes, cool coffee houses, pokey bookshops, and lively street markets, it's easy to see why Ernest Hemingway, Jim Morrison and many others fell in love with the bohemian vibe of Saint-Germain-des-Pres. Despite rising prices and gentrification, Saint-Germain has managed to retain its irresistible, artistic charm. Next on our Paris walking tour, we wander along the serene embankments of the Seine River and towards the energetic Saint-Michel area.
Take a peek into Paris' first English bookshop, nestled in a medieval house and packed to the rafters with books, as we continue our Paris day trip adventure. Admire the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral, then escape the crowds and sample a typical French charcuterie plate in a traditional wine house. Full of deliciously decadent cheese, salty cured meat and rich pate, this is an authentic French gastronomic treat!
Afterwards, head off slowly to admire the pretty islands on the Seine River and enjoy a quick trip on Paris' Metro. This is a great chance to get to know this notoriously confusing transport system with the help of your local Paris guide!
Arrive at one of Paris' ancient Roman arenas just in time to finish the tour by playing a game of petanque with a glass of French wine in hand. What better way to finish this Paris city tour rich in history, gastronomy, art and architecture?
