1. Paris: Hidden Eiffel Tower Views, Passy Village, and Wine
Meet your local guide at Trocadero, where you’ll hear stories about the sabotage that stopped Hitler from climbing to the top and of the memorable jump of a parachute pioneer. From there, step back from the crowds to enter a peaceful Parisian cemetery. Hear about some of the famous people buried there while taking in a unique view of the Eiffel Tower from between the cathedral-like graves. Move on through a hidden garden before visiting the charming Passy area. Stroll through narrow pedestrian streets rarely visited by tourists and see the local market. Take in the sights and enjoy a delicious pastry from a local bakery. Visit the former house of Balzac, one of France’s most famous writers, before entering a 15th century monastery cellar now converted into a museum. There you’ll hear about the history of vineyards in Paris, while sipping a glass of wine. Finally, cross an iconic bridge where the tour ends with one last stunning view of the Eiffel Tower.
