DAY 1

City tour of Paris : Climb up to the top of Eiffel tower to have that unprecedented view over Paris, the city of love.  “Eiffel tower”, also called “Dame de Fer –Iron Lady”  is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower. Constructed in 1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World's Fair The tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall,[2] about the same height as an 81-storey building.

Later visit Louvre Museum: a historic monument in center of Paris, France. Louvre is not only one of the world's largest museums but it is also  the world's most visited museum, receiving more than 9.26 million visitors in 2014.
The museum is housed in the Louvre Palace, originally built as a fortress in the late 12th century under Philip II. Remnants of the fortress are visible in the basement of the museum. Masterpieces like Mona Lisa" by Leonardo da Vinci, The Nike of Samothrace, Raft of the Medusa" by Théodore Géricault, Sleeping Hermaphroditos and many more will make you travel through the time!!!!

Lunch in the Marais Area & Place de Vosges: situated in 3rd and 4th arrondisement of Paris , where you get to feel the medieval Paris with its typical Parisian restaurants, high and low fashion boutiques, trendy shops, hip designers, old fashioned bread shops, jewelry, wine shops, fashionable art galleries and museums all crammed into one small area.

Later visit Notre Dame Cathedral : one of the oldest monument of Paris, over 800 years old!!! The Notre Dame Cathedral is widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in the world.. The name Notre Dame means "Our Lady" in French, and is frequently used in the names of Catholic church buildings in Francophone countries! Appointed bishop of Paris in 1160, Maurice de Sully decided to give the capital a cathedral worthy of France’s largest city. He wanted to build it in the style of the day, now known as the gothic style. King Louis VII, one of his classmates, encouraged the project. The Church, notable residents of the city, and the entire population participated in construction: some offered money, others offered their labour, while others offered their knowledge. Construction began in 1163, and Notre-Dame would be completed some 100 years later, in 1272. During this time, many craftsmen’s guilds (tailors, sculptors, carpenters, joiners, masons, and glassblowers) worked relentlessly under the supervision of seasoned architects. They all made an equal contribution to God and to Mary.
Mary, Mother of God, to whom Maurice wanted to dedicated the entire cathedral, it was dedicated to her, Notre-Dame de Paris, Our Lady of Paris! At the cathedral, there are no fewer than 37 representations of the Virgin (sculptures, paintings, stained glass, and more).Since it was built, the cathedral has been one of the main symbols of Paris and of France ,


Walk till George Pompidou-  The Centre National d'Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou is a giant, futuristic arts center located in the Marais district of Paris. President Pompidou conceived (1969) the idea for Beaubourg, as the center  to bring art and culture to the "man in the street". It was completed in 1978 by the architects Renzo Piano of Italy and Richard Rogers of England. The structure forms a huge transparent box whose exposed frame of tubular steel columns carries trusses spanning the width of the building. Its overpowering industrial-looking exterior, which dwarfs its surroundings, attracted notoriety for its brightly coloured exterior pipes, ducts, and other exposed services. Primarily a museum and centre for the visual arts of the 20th century, the Pompidou Centre houses many separate services and activities. Its museum of modern art brought under one roof several public collections of modern art previously housed in a number of other Paris galleries.

Later we drive to Arc de Triomphe - Champs elysée, Most beautiful avenue of the world!!
Arc de triomphe was built between 1806 and 1836 is an honour for those who fought for France, in particular, those who fought during the Napoleonic Wars. Engraved on the inside and at the top of the arch are all of the names of the generals and wars fought. There are inscriptions in the ground underneath the vault of the arch which include the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from World War I where  the Memorial Flame burns and have made the Arc de Triomphe Paris a revered patriotic site. 

From Arc de triomphe you walk down the avenue de champs elysée admiring the elegant facades, high end beauty stores, stylish cafés and restaurants,  and leafy plane trees along the massive saide walks and not to forget the Grand Palais & Petit Palais.

Walk Leading to Place de la Concorde provides the quintessential "Parisian view". From here you can see the Arch in the distance, the massive avenue, the National Assembly, the Madeleine church, the famous Hotel de Crillon, the Grand Palais, the Obelisk of Luxor, and the Eiffel Tower rising behind it all. While the scene is breathtaking, it helps to remember that thousands of people were executed in the center of the square during the revolution, including Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette. The obelisk was a gift from Egypt--- imagine receiving a 2,300 year old obelisk for your backyard~ez_hellip~it's not as though you could hide it in the closet. Facing the obelisk is the Hotel de Crillon---- NOT for the budget conscious family. This is generally considered the most exclusive hotel in Paris. It is adjacent to the American embassy, which is appropriate considering the hotel was the place Benjamin Franklin met King Louis XVI to sign the treaty recognizing America's independence.


Passing through Place Vendome – which houses the most expensive hotels and jewellery houses of Paris we arrive to Opera Garnier and Galleries Lafayette –upmarket French departmental store, free time for shopping.
 Dinner at a chic Parisian restaurant of your choice.

 
DAY 2
After Breakfast at the hotel we drive to Majestic Palace de Versailles , royal residence of the Kings of France, Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI and their courts from 1682 to 1789.
The Château de Versailles, which has been on UNESCO’s World Heritage List for 30 years, is one of the most beautiful achievements of 18th-century French art. The site began as Louis XIII’s hunting lodge before his son Louis XIV transformed and expanded it, moving the court and government of France to Versailles in 1682. Each of the three French kings who lived there until the French Revolution added improvements to make it more beautiful.

The Hall of Mirrors, the King’s Grand Apartments, the Museum of the History of France. The Château de Versailles, the seat of power until 1789, has continued to unfurl its splendour over the course of centuries. At first it was just a humble hunting lodge built by Louis XIII. But Louis XIV chose the site to build the palace we know today, the symbol of royal absolutism and embodiment of classical French art.
Finally, take advantage of the opportunity to delight in Versailles's captivating French-style gardens. Take a walk around the impressive gardens (you might be pushed to cover all 250 acres though) and meander through the landscaped geometric paths and manicured lawns. As Europe’s largest palace garden it’s nothing short of breath-taking and spans down into basins with regal fountains for the complete picturesque setting. Make sure you stop off at the Apollo and Latona fountains to admire the marble statues
 Lunch in a reataurant around Versilles. Later in the evening attend a French Cabaret show “Lido” or “Mouline Rouge” accompanied with a glass of champagne. Dinner during or post show.

The 130 meters (426 feet) high hill is famous not only for its remarkable church, but also for its bohemian past. The village within a city once was the home to artists such as Salvadar Dalí, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent van Gogh. The picturesque Paris neighborhood still draws millions of visitors every year. An automatic funicular railway carries passengers to the top of the hill in a minute for a breathtaking view over Paris.

Once up on the hill, take a minute – or a couple more – to take in the magnificent views of Paris. On the steps in front of the church you’ll see lots people chilling around, as this is one of the most popular touristic spots in Paris. And you can quickly see why: the view of the Parisian rooftops and the many landmarks of the city is unlike anything else in the world. If you can’t get enough of it consider returning after nightfall: the view of the city of lights only gets more spectacular after dark. During the day, however, you’ll get the chance to see many street performers doing tricks or playing music for the delight of the crowd. This is also a good time to pick up cheap souvenirs: if you haggle over the price a little you can get pretty good deals!
