This was our first trip together. In the fall of 2012 we decided to visit the city of love, of lights and the capital of fashion. We ordered a cruise on the river Seine and for 4 days we lived the Parisian dream together.

We chose the cruise company Cruise Critic and everything was wonderful and was prepared to very high standards on the ship.We recomend this company if you want to have an amazing vacation!

The ship stayed most of the time in the port of the Seine, but it also sailed twice on the river, and we enjoyed wonderful views over the city. While the ship was in port, we included in the price the visits, so we went with our group by bus to look for the wonderful attractions of Paris.

We had a few trips included in the price of the cruise, but I also ordered a few extras.We ordered them with Get Your Guide and Viator (you just have to compare the prices) and so we spared money.We always recommend to buy the trips with a couple of days or weeks,and you will get them cheaper.

Also if you don’t have trips included and you don’t want something too elaborate you can choose a Big Bus tour that has a certain itinerary for the city’s attractions.But if, on the contrary, you want to have as much time as you want to visit the attractions and you don’t want to go by bus, you can always rent a car.

The first stop was at the Louvre Museum which is the largest museum of history and art in France and one of the most important museums in the world. It is located in the center of the French capital, Paris, between the right quay of the Seine and Rivoli Street. Here are some pictures taken at the Louvre Museum:

Musée d’Orsay ,Center Pompidou ,Arch of Triumph,Champs-Élysées

The next day we did the second tour of Paris, on land, and it included the Cathedral of Notre Dame which is a monument of early Gothic architecture in France, the seat of the Archdiocese of Paris. The cathedral is located on the Île de la Cité in central Paris.

The next stop was at Moulin Rouge, and we were delighted to see the famous cabaret in Montmartre.

Of course, as a last stop we visited the Montmartre district from where we could have a wonderful view over Paris .Then we visited the amazing Sacred Heart Basilica(Sacre Coeur Basilica) . These are our pictures from this tour:
