Paris, the cosmopolitan capital of France, is one of Europe’s largest city. It’s a city of historic places, art, culture, fashion, cosmetic, & design. The most iconic landmarks of Paris are Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, Moulin Rouge and Lido and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
So, after enjoying 2days at Disneyworld next was to explore the fascinating city. We traveled by train to our first tourist attraction but somewhat we felt difficult to manage with small kids. So, we immediately booked City Tour Bus for 2days which we thought could be ideal and best option to explore the city with kids and for a short trip.
Personally, I found the City Tour Bus very convenient for various reasons. Our Bus was double-decker with an open-top. It is tension and stress-free tour, no worries about navigations, reaching at the bus stop, checking timings for next bus etc. The Bus tour is so convenient that we can Hop on and off near main Paris attractions, plus hear audio commentary on the city’s history, monuments, and museums.
We had Booked Bus Tour of “Paris Open tour”
Now they had these concepts of 4lines Yellow Line, Red Line, Blue line & Green Line. They have different buses running in these zones. So, this is a really fantastic and easy way to visit your sightseeing locations. Just take route Map from them and priorities which places you want to visit first or it can work vice versa like each line mentions the tourist attraction so if you following yellow line Bus you will know which tourist attraction you will be visiting and same goes for other 3 lines also.

Also, another suggestion is You can also avail for ‘Paris Pass’ it’s a kind of pre-paid entry card that allows entry into over 70 museums and monuments around Paris (and the Palace of Versailles). The card allows you to jump lengthy queues, fast-track entry, during tourist season it can save time.

The Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Château de Versailles, Catacombs, Notre Dame Cathedral, Opera Garnier, Place de la République, Grand Arche de la Défense, The Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Rodin Museum, Les Invalides and many more….
- Planning and Prioritising your tourist attractions/sightseeing is important.
- If your Prais tour is fixed try to do maximum pre-bookings to save time.
- check closing time, dates & public holiday schedule to avoid disappointments.
- Most museums and galleries are closed on either Monday or Tuesday. Examples: The Louvre museum is closed on Tuesdays while the Orsay museum is closed on Mondays. Be sure you check before planning.
- Ticket counters often get closed before 30mins of final closing.
- During festive season or public holidays, these places are very crowded so be prepared for long queuing or waiting.
My frank opinion is for Paris city tour 2days is not ideally enough maximum 3-4 days is required but as I mentioned everyone has their own preferences. so this tour we preferred to Enjoy at Disneyland Paris for 2days and our main attraction was Eiffel Tower. Maybe next time we will plan for more days.
Paris is a beautiful city and not to be missed by your travel list.
