Full description
Your tour begins among the famously luxurious restaurants and boutiques of the Champs-Élysées – named for the Elysian Fields, Greek mythology’s heavenly land of plenty. As restaurant staff lay out candles for an evening of romantic dinners, you’ll start your stroll along the wide, straight boulevard toward the towering Arc de Triomphe.

Along the way, your passionate local guide will reveal the high-society origins of this fashionable district – and can recommend nearby places to visit to enrich your Parisian experience. You’ll hear how, in the 16th-century, Ekaterina Medici was inspired to extend the promenade of Tuileries Garden from the Louvre into the Paris countryside, where gardens overflowed with fragrant herbs and the royal family hunted ducks. Over time, impressive residences were built along the fashionable avenue, and today it remains the widest and most beautiful boulevard in all of Paris.

After a little high-end window shopping, you’ll find yourself at the foot of the magnificent Arc de Triomphe, built to honor Napoleon’s military prowess. With Skip-the-Line Access, only 284 steps separate you from a spectacular 360-degree view of Paris from the top of the arch. This tour is carefully timed to arrive at the top just as the sunset paints the city’s avenues and unmistakable landmarks in priceless gold. Your guide will point out amazing sights as you take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime photo opportunity. As you descend, the Paris nightlife will be coming to life, ready and waiting for you to continue your magical evening.
