Paris Sightseeing

With Paris walking tours, tourists can easily lap around the central hubs, make any number of stops they want, and pause in places mentioned in the guidebook according to their wish. The following places may take up to 6 hours to complete, but their enchanting appeal lures the crowd in always.

La Rive Gauche to Les Invalides

If you are coming from Notre Dame, you may as well cross the Seine River and turn south to La Rive Gauche. The sight of street sellers selling the pre-historic photos of Paris with their trunks loaded up and traffic bustling with joy is usual here, yet very interesting. A one-hour walk from up there would take you to Les Invalides that houses many vaults and tombstones including the famous French general Napoleon Bonaparte.

Arc de Triomphe to Champs- Élysées

If you are afraid of scaling the heights of Eiffel Tower and yet want to explore skyline views of the City Capital, go nowhere but to this monumental arch. Situated right in the center of Charles de Gaulle, you get to quench your thirst from up here at a much lower cost than from the Champs-Élysées far west. Go slow on the drinks though, for hitting the restrooms here can burn a hole in your pocket.

De la Concorde to Jardin de Tuileries

With this in your to-do list, you cover most major places that are featured in Paris city tours guidebook. Take funky selfies from this mildly-populated public square situated at the far end of the Champs, with tall fountains and flower beds on the backdrop. A straight walk from there takes you to the Louvre museum, but you could also choose to hang around and taste some local food from the Parisian restaurants.

The best of Paris is explored on foot, as there are hundreds of places to visit in the Paris city walking tours schedule. Taking a guide alongside may prove to be highly useful for those who are afraid of tourist traps. Spare a thought. The unforeseen corners of any populated town could have one or two traps and escaping them effectively lays you back to bed after the eponymous Paris city tour.
