Fly from Aberdeen Airport to Paris – a city that needs no introduction! World famous for romance, fashion, food and the arts, the French capital offers so many attractions you’ll be coming back for more time and time again!
The Eiffel Tower
A world-famous icon, the Eiffel Tower and France go hand-in-hand. Soaring into the Parisian skyline at a dizzy 324 metres the Tower offers unbeatable views of France’s capital on the top floor, and even houses two restaurants on the lower floors! It’s no wonder the Tower is the world’s most-visited paid monument.
France has been famous for its food culture since the late 18th century, and you can see why – in 2014, of the 27 three-star Michelin Guide restaurants located in France, eight were in Paris! Perhaps one of the most desirable eating venues is L'Ambroisie, a real jewel of French gastronomy serving beautifully presented traditional delights, and a fine selection of the best French wines to wash it down with.
The Louvre opened in 1792 and is the World's largest art museum. Located on the right bank of the River Seine, it is home to some incredible works of art. Notable works of art in the Louvre include the Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa and Alexandros of Antioch's Aphrodite of Milos.
Seine River Cruise
Take part in a relaxing Seine River Cruise and explore the city from the riverside. Starting at pier 3 near the Eiffel Tower, you cross most of Paris’ popular landmarks including the Notre Dame Cathedral, the Tuileries Gardens and the Grand Palais. Did you know that the river banks are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site?
