Hop-on/hop-off bus: places of interest

The capital of France is known for its rich history, art, culture and architecture - most notably the Eiffel Tower. You can reach the following sights by hop-on hop-off bus or boat:

  • Eiffel Tower
  • Louvre Museum
  • Notre Dame Cathedral
  • Montmartre and Sacré-Cœur
  • Champs-Élysées
  • Arc de Triomphe
  • Panthéon
  • Sainte-Chapelle
  • Musée d'Orsay

Simply get off at the nearest stop, visit a sight and then continue your journey.

Most of the sights are close to the city centre and are therefore easy to reach by bus or boat. Often only a short walk is necessary.

Only Montmartre and the Sacré-Cœur Basilica are not accessible by hop-on hop-off bus, but only by public transport.

Is a Paris city tour worthwhile?

Paris is a historic and impressive city that has a lot to offer its visitors. To ensure that exploring the city is relaxed and comfortable despite the large number of sights and the extensive urban area, it is worth taking a city tour with the hop-on hop-off bus.

Thanks to the hop-on hop-off concept, you can hop on and off at the most important sights. This allows you to set your own pace and take enough time to explore the places that interest you the most. Whether it's the majestic Eiffel Tower, the world-famous Louvre or the picturesque banks of the Seine - the hop-on hop-off bus takes you directly to the city's most important sights.

The hop-on hop-off buses also offer a great deal of comfort. They are usually equipped with comfortable seating, air conditioning and panoramic windows that provide an optimal view of the city. This is particularly pleasant if you want to enjoy the breathtaking architecture and the hustle and bustle of Paris without having to worry about traffic or finding your way around.

On sunny days, you can sit on the upper deck with the roof open and watch the highlights of Paris pass by.

All hop-on hop-off buses are equipped with multilingual audio guides. These provide passengers with exciting background information and stories about the individual stops, enriching your travel experience.

Last but not least, the hop-on hop-off bus saves you time. Instead of meandering through the city traffic on public transport or in your own car, you can simply hop on the bus, sit back and enjoy Paris to the full.

All in all, the city tour by hop-on hop-off bus offers an ideal combination of convenience, flexibility and an informative travel experience for anyone who wants to experience Paris in all its splendour without having to worry about logistics and planning.
