Day 1: Flight to Paris – Transfer to hotel 
Meeting at the airport, check-in and direct flight to the French capital, Paris. Arrival and after collecting the luggage we will meet the tour leader. On our way to the city centre for our first introduction, we will start to feel the French aura. Transfer and check-in at our hotel.

Day 2: City tour – Arc de Triomphe – Louvre Museum – Montmartre – Cruise on the Seine 
Breakfast and we start our tour, where we will start our first stop in Trocadero, where we will have the opportunity to photograph the absolute star of the city, the Eiffel Tower, the most recognizable monument in the world. We continue with the world’s largest triumphal arch, the Arc de Triomphe, the famous Avenue of the Champs Elysees, but also an avenue of pride for the French Republic, the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais, art exhibition halls, followed by the most impressive bridge of Alexander III, the imposing Palais des Apomaches, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the French Parliament (National Assembly). We continue with the Place de la Concorde (Place de la Concorde), the old royal garden now known as the Kerameikos Garden, the Orsay Museum, the prestigious Place Vendome and the famous Ritz Hotel, the impressive Opera Garnier and the Pont Neuf, the oldest bridge in the city. We will cross the Isle of Cité, the historic centre, since that is where the city was born, to get closer to – the most famous cathedral in the world, Notre Dame de Paris, which we will see from the outside due to the extensive damage to its roof. Moving on, we will see the neighbourhood of Cartier-Latin, the historic Sorbonne University and the Luxembourg Gardens – an oasis of mental and physical exhilaration with its awesome fountains and statues, as well as the eponymous palace of Marie de Medici. Next is the Pantheon, the necropolis of important figures of the country, such as Victor Hugo, the artistic district of Saint Germain with the famous cafés les Deux magots and café de Flor, the square of Saint Sulpice and the School of Fine Arts. Free time and then full of images we will visit the world’s most famous museum, the Louvre. It is no coincidence that they call it “The World Temple of Art”. With our official Greek-speaking guide we will wander the magical grounds of this old palace and admire its treasures. We will follow her on a journey of exploration, a journey through time and human creation. Of course, a major stop on this visit will be the Greek wing , a pillar of the museum, with the two Greek stars, Niki of Samothrace and Aphrodite of Milos, as well as the part of the Parthenon frieze with the Labyrinths and the fronts from the sanctuary of ancient Olympia. We continue in the adjacent wing with the Mona Lisa, and other works of art that are milestones in the development of the Italian Renaissance. We will also dwell on the masterpieces of French painting by 18th and 19th century painters that “light up” the museum’s large galleries. For the evening we suggest an optional tour of illuminated Paris. We will visit the highest natural point of the city, the hill of Montmartre, dominated by the Basilica of the Sacre Coeur (Sacred Heart) with its spectacular views, the square of the outdoor painters and the home of Salvador Dali. Time at leisure to stroll through the quaint Parisian shops of the square. Then you will experience Paris from a different perspective, the unique viewpoint offered by a bateaux mouches cruise through the illuminated historic buildings of Paris (Seine cruise).

Let the colours, the joyful music, the spectacular shows, the majestic parades of all the Disney heroes fascinate you. We suggest you to live in the Far West era with its riverboats and canyons, to wander on Indiana Jones’ roller coaster, to visit Pirate Island with its hidden treasures and fabulous bazaars. Dine in person at one of the 29 restaurants and visit the magical world of Sleeping Beauty, Pinocchio, Jules Verne and Peter Pan.

Walk along the most famous avenue in the world and take pictures at the Arc de Triomphe .(Optional tour cost: 155€ for adults, 125€ for children. Includes transportation & entrance ticket). For those who don’t follow the Disney visit, we recommend a stroll through the picturesque Marais, also known as Old Paris, an aristocratic district of Paris that still retains its classic, medieval style and perfectly combines the charm and romance of the past with modern Paris. With its pre-revolutionary architecture and shops along the sidewalks, this area is truly a wonderful sight and a great place to stroll. Furthermore, you can visit the Galeries Lafayette department store, where you can go beyond shopping and enjoy views of all of Paris from the roof garden.
