3.c Seine cruise
An evening cruise along Seine River is the best way to learn about the famous landmarks of Paris and get to know the history of this city. There are many companies offering such tours in Paris. Do check the cruise timetables to match your timings although they are available at frequent intervals. Generally, the boats have an open deck at the top for unrestricted views – hence they are more crowded. The lower deck is more peaceful and has a lot of seats. If you are travelling with senior citizens, that’s definitely a better option. The lower deck also has some accessible balconies from where you can take some nice pictures. If you are up for it, you can also book a dinner cruise to enjoy a special experience on the River Seine.

3.d Palace of Versailles
This is one of the most visited palaces in Europe and rightly so given its beautiful extravagant design, sheer massive size and obviously the renowned Hall of Mirrors. Located in the city of Versailles, this former French royal residence was built by King Louis XIV. The magnificent garden at Versailles is spread over an area of around 30,000 acres of land which took almost 40 years to be completed!! Reserve atleast 3-4 hours to tour this beautiful work of art and get ready to be lost in the most stunning room of this palace- among the 357 mirrors in the Hall of Mirrors!!
