I’m easy and relaxing, way to see the city, sound quality of the description in multilingual isn’t good, but once you get used to it, you can listen to it and taking the sites, a very different view, particularly of the repairs at Notre Dame.

Next to the Alma Bridge, culture lovers will not be left out a few meters from the Museum of Modern Art of the City of Paris and the Yves-Saint Laurent Museum in particular. If you went on a night cruise on the Seine, continue the experience with a show at Crazy Horse de Paris located on the other side of Place de l'Alma at the entrance to avenue George V.
