It’s going to be an intense day in the “Ville Lumiere”, so put your comfortable shoes on because it’s time to walk. We will start in Notre Dame, the great Lady of Paris, and going through pont Neuf, we will admire Paris’ river, The Seine and we will pass by the museum that contains the most famous painting of all times, Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.

Of course, we’ll finish our tour at the most famous tower, the Eiffel Tower, a massive structure of steel which was a result of a universal exhibition in the nineteenth century and since then has watched the people of Paris from above, covered in trillions of their little locks. And you don’t have to be in love to enjoy Paris.

Did you know…

  • The Eiffel Tower is 18 cm higher in summer, due to the expansion of iron.
  • Why Paris is called City of Light? Its because many burglaries used to take place, so the mayor ordered putting candles in all windows, until gas lamps were installed on the streets.
  • A problem called “Paris Syndrome“ affects many Japanese who arrive to the city with very high expectations which are not fulfilled during their visit so they suffer great disappointment. There is even a phone line available 24 hours a day for victims of the syndrome.


26´Day - Paris - Bus

Today on our trip around Europe you´ll have the day free to do what you like in Paris, giving you all the time you need to to see some of the places left on your list. If you don´t have any, we can give you some tips to know what do!

Now is the time to visit the Louvre to enjoy its long exhibitions and learn how to not wink at the Mona Lisa. If you prefer it, you can enjoy modern architecture and futuristic skyscrapers in the  La Défense neighbourhood.

Would you rather see somehting more exotic and multicultural? There is a very curious neighbourhood called Belleville, where Mr. Mallaussene used to live. If you want to see a bit of Italy in Paris don’t hesitate to visit the gardens of Luxembourg, which were owned by Maria dei Medici, and on the way appreciate the Pantheon, the Sorbonne (the top university in France) and stroll through the Latin Quarter and its thousands of pubs.


27´Day - Bye Bye Madrid

We will cross the border n the morning, bright and early, and arrive  in the north of Spain. You’ll get to Spain through the windows as we drive across the country and end up where it all began: Madrid.

We hope you had an amazing time travelling with Unitrips and now you´ll be able to say that you have seen half of Europe and you will go home with memories of the most beautiful corners of this old continent, with your new friends from all over the world.
