STOP FOR LUNCH
We'll take a break for lunch in the historic district of Le Marais. Your guide will be able to recommend a suitable restaurant for you.

We'll stop at Notre Dame where we will have a chance to look inside this famous cathedral, a perfect example of French Gothic architecture. The stone gargoyles that sit atop the cathedral are even fabled to come to life at night!
ICE CREAM AT BERTHILLON
We'll cross over the Seine River, to visit the St Louis and La Cite islands. If you're an ice cream lover we can check out the famous Berthillon ice creamery on St Louis Island. We think it's an unmissable stop.
