After lunch, spend the afternoon on a guided tour of Paris. Visit the capital's major must-see sites, such as the Place de la République, the Grands Boulevards, the Opera, the Place de la Madeleine, Place Vendôme, and the Louvre. Walk through time and history as you discover the area around Palais Royale on a walking tour. Often used as shortcuts for pedestrians, every one of these walkways is like a village in the heart of the capital. While the galleries have retained all their historical charm, modern designers, such as Shiseido, JP Gauthier, Stella McCartney, and many others have also brought their own touch of luxury and extravagance. Return to the ship in time for dinner and remain in port overnight.
Travel by coach from Trocadero and take the 'Triumphal Way' route, passing by the Arc de Triomphe, down the Champs Elysées and around the Place de la Concorde before arriving in Saint-Germain-des-Prés. This district is one of the truly legendary places where history, architecture, art, and society best symbolize the soul of Paris. Work your way through a maze of streets and little squares to discover buildings from the 17th and 18th centuries. Near the Seine, artists and writers give way to antique dealers and luxury boutiques. In the evening, return to the ship by coach and enjoy a gala dinner on board, followed by a "Paris by night" cruise to see the city lights from the water.
