When you get back on dry land, track back to the amazing Musee d'Orsay and enjoy the impressionist masterpieces from notable painters like Cézanne, Degas, and Monet. The Louvre gallery is also a must-see for art-lovers where you can witness
firsthand the mesmeric gaze of Mona Lisa for yourself.
For history buffs, the Place de la Bastille is where the Bastille prison stood until it was stormed during the Frenshc Revolution in the late 1700s. And while you might know the Champs-Élysées more as the finishing line for the world’s biggest cycle race, the
Tour de France, this street is famed for its theatres, cafés, luxury shops, and the annual Bastille parade. You’ll find it running between the Place de la Concorde and the Place Charles de Gaulle, where the Arc de Triomphe is located.
