Classis Paris Tour for women
With tours taking place in spring when the cherry blossom is out and autumn when the leaves turn every shade of gold you’ll see the city of light is at its best. You’ll discover quintessential Paris sites like the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. But, you’ll get to experience a more authentic side of Paris. Its cosy cafés and charming cobbled streets, delicious boulangeries and exquisite shops.
Discver the historic streets and buildings of Paris including arty Montmartre, the historic Latin quarter and the charming Marais district. You’ll visit the most famous antiques markets in France, as well as art and street markets. Relax in gorgeous city gardens as the flowers bloom their brightest – just perfect for a picnic, organised just for you. You’ll also visit the house and gardens of Claude Monet at Giverny in Normandy which the artist immortalised in some of his most magnificent paintings. It’s an extraordinarily atmospheric place. You’ll feel almost as if Monet has just stepped out and will return soon to admire the vase of fresh flowers on the sideboard in the salon or relax in his stunning kitchen.
