For everybody from honeymooners to historians, Paris is known for romance.
Paris, also known as the city of lights, is a top tourist destination and is also the capital and largest city in France. A Paris honeymoon is a dream come true for many of the millions of tourists that visit this historic metropolis each year. And for many more, romantic Paris is a dream waiting to come true. Walking arm in arm over one of the many historic bridges that cross the Seine river may seem like a cliché and companies are always looking for new ways to improve Paris sightseeing tours. Taking into consideration the multitude of sites to visit, the size of the city, the bustling traffic and the desire for authenticity Paris tours need to be chosen with care in order to make the most out of a trip.
Wallking down the famous Avenue des Champs-Élysées from the Arc de Triomphe towards the city center, tourists, with their maps open are abundant and everywhere. How will they make romantic Paris romantic for them and more importantly, how will you make it romantic for you? More planning equals less adventure and less planning in this city filled with tourist traps means you might end up eating an overpriced hamburger (without the bun) and ice cream in a falsely authentic restaurant decorated with reprints of advertisements from the 1950s and empty bottles of wine in one of the touristy quarters like Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Not even the French fries are French! What kind of Paris sightseeing tour makes it possible to see everything you dreamed of without feeling like you are part of a herd of tourists? Romance it seems requires authenticity.
The Citroën 2CV is an authentic French car with a long history and a new role
Production of the Citroën 2CV began in 1948 and continued until 1990 with over five million copies sold in Europe and elsewhere. It would have been hard to imagine during the time of its design that it would be used the following century for Paris private tours. Refitted of course, the 2CVs available for Paris tours by Paris Authentic are all convertibles and have see-through tops in winter. These cars, accompanied by a real Parisian driver, with his French beret create a real sense of authenticity. The driver knows every corner of Paris and is full of anecdotes and useful information. The luxury is the combination of the authenticity and the variety of the Paris private tours that are offered along with escaping the flocks of tourists and not having to worry about the details (traffic, maps, itineraries, choosing a restaurant, etc…).
Combining the “must sees” with unexpected surprises is the best way to visit Paris
A wide variety of choices are available from Paris Authentic. This company, dedicated to providing authentic tours of Paris in restored Citroën 2CVs, will take you to all of the best sites and then some. The tours range from one hour to the entire day and most often begin at the the front door of your hotel. Packages combining boat rides on the Seine river, shows at the Moulin Rouge or the Lido, wine tasting, of course shopping, and many others with an itinerary in a 2CV are designed to meet the desires of any visitor. A Paris honeymoon can be complimented with the Paris Romantic tour which features Montmartre, Sacré Cœur, Moulin Rouge, Pigalle, Opéra Garnier, and the Pyramide du Louvre among others renowned sites.
If you are looking to reach the outskirts of Paris and beyond, four hour excursions to Versailles and Chantilly are available. Full day trips can be customized to meet specific needs or desires. And if you are not sure what to do or think you have seen it all, try the Unsuspected tour and see what has been hiding on Paris’s less frequented streets. The panoramic views from a traditional Citroën 2CV will give you a nontraditional perspective of this magnificent city.
