In the morning, meet your guide at a central location in Paris, who provides you with an envelope of tickets to keep on-hand for your sightseeing activities for the day. Begin your walking tour in the Ile de la Cité, where Paris began and one of two remaining islands in the Seine River, and learn about the Pont Neuf, the oldest bridge in the city.
Amble along to the Place Dauphine, where the left and right banks of the Seine River connect. See the Palace of Justice (Palais de Justice), the former royal palace and prison where Marie Antoinette was imprisoned before being meeting her fate at the guillotine. Check out the Notre Dame Cathedral and either the Orsay or Louvre Museum.
Rest your feet at a French bistro in the Latin Quarter for a relaxing 3-course lunch that lasts for two hours — about how long Parisians take to enjoy a meal.
Continue to the Montparnasse Tower and sail past the waiting lines with your skip-the-line entry. Step aboard an elevator that whisks you to the 56th floor, and then take in far-reaching views of Paris.
In the early evening, board a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus with your provided ticket, and explore other sights as you like on your own time.
