      • The center of the city: You’ll be taken around various points of interest, including the Louvre, Notre-Dame, Place de la Concorde, and other top locations. You’ll have free time to wander through the streets of Montmartre, and then discover the Sacré Coeur and Place du Tertre with its artists. 
      • The view of a lifetime: After your discovery of the center of Paris by minibus, your driver-guide will take you to the iconic Eiffel Tower. You’ll enjoy the unique and marvelous panorama from the structure’s second floor. (This visit might be replaced by the 56th floor of Montparnasse Tower from which you’ll be able to admire the whole city.) 
      • On the water: Your excursion ends with a one-hour Seine river cruise to admire the monuments from a different point-of-view. You haven’t seen Paris until you’ve seen it from the water.

      Are you ready to experience three of the top highlights of the magical City of Light? Good, because that's the treat you're in for on this five-hour excursion. Begin by losing yourself among the narrow streets of Paris's hilly 18th arrondissement, Montmartre. Pose for pictures on the steps of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the white castle in the sky and the second most-visited church in all of France (after Notre Dame). Head up the tower for panoramic view of Paris, spread out almost seven hundred feet below, then step inside and look for Luc-Olivier Merson's grand mosaic, Christ in Majesty.
       
      The construction of Sacré-Coeur, situated on sacred land that dates back to the time of the Druids, was the result of a "National Vow" made during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-71—a promise made to God to build a church if Paris escaped the war untouched. It would also signal repentance for the sins of Paris.

      A group of influential people triggered the French National Assembly in 1873 to authorize the construction of a Christian church that would be visible throughout Paris, and so the building project began. In 1905, more than bats landed in this belfry. Tucked inside the massive campanile is the largest bell in France; known as "La Savoyarde," it weighs in at 19 tons. Inside, look up at the stained-glass windows. Installed in 1922, they were blown out by a bombing during World War II and rebuilt in 1946. Miraculously, there were no deaths. Perhaps it pays to be the result of a National Vow.

      Putting the art in Montmartre

      The Belle Époque, the "beautiful era" between the end of the Franco-Prussian War and the beginning of World War I, was a fruitful time for the many artists working in and around Montmartre. As you wander the Place du Tertre, channel your inner Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Piet Mondrian, or Camille Pissarro. (Now that's quite a roster!)
