Amsterdam to Paris Tour Package
After leaving Amsterdam in the morning you’ll head south across the border into Brussels, the Belgian capital and political center of the European Union.
On the way, the tour stops to see the distinctive Atomium monument, a cell-shaped structure of stainless steel spheres and tubes built for the 1958 World's Fair. In the center of Brussels itself we'll take an orientation tour, calling in at the exquisite Grand Place, as well as the famous tinkling cherub Manneken Pis statue.
After some free time, during which you can try some Belgian delights. Then from Brussels it's south again across the French border and on to the bright lights of Paris.
Paris is your oyster over the next two days as you enjoy guided tours around one of the world's most celebrated cities. We'll drive along the famous Champs Elysees to the Place de la Concorde which played a key part in the French Revolution. You'll also get to see the iconic Arc de Triomphe, the imposing monument that sits near the western end of the avenue and commemorates the fallen of the revolution and Napoleonic wars.
You’ll take in another significant historical building next as you head to Les Invalides, where Napoleon's tomb is located, followed by a stop at the most legendary of all icons: the Eiffel Tower. You can either take time to explore the neighborhood and have some lunch, or scale the Eiffel Tower. The choice is yours.
Finally, you'll travel by coach out through the Parisian suburbs to the splendid Palace of Versailles, the vast regal château that was the residence of the royal family until the start of the revolution in 1789.
In the evening, you can enjoy one of our optional cabaret shows in Paris (own expense).
The second day of your Parisian experience begins with a visit to the Louvre, one of the world's greatest art museums. Here you’ll set your eyes upon some of history’s most famous masterpieces, including the Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace (also called Nike of Samothrace), and Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Opt for a guided gallery tour, which will enhance your experience and allow you to browse through hundreds of works in just a few hours. You can then take a leisurely cruise along the river Seine, a great sightseeing option that offers splendid views of iconic Parisian landmarks, including Notre-Dame Cathedral and Pont Alexandre III.
After an exhilarating morning of walking the gallery corridors, replenish your energy levels with lunch in the museum before heading to the area surrounding the Palais Garnier, Paris’s Opera House. Afterwards, you have an option of having a French 4 course Dinner and Show experience or spend time shopping at the legendary department stores Galleries Lafayette.
For some tour members, it will be time to say goodbye to new-found friends, while others will opt to stay another night in this French city of delights before picking up the other Line tour the next day
