The Largest Wholesale Produce Market In The World – Pere Lachaise Cemetery Or The Pantheon – Paris-By-Night Cruise
Optional tour (must be reserved before your departure): We’ll leave at dawn by coach for a guided tour of the world-renowned Rungis produce market.(3) This is where all fine French cuisine begins: at the largest fresh produce market in the world. The market is broken down into five sub-markets: fish, meat, fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and flowers. To round out our visit, we’ll sit down to a delicious brunch. OR take some free time this morning to explore the French capital at your own pace. Our ship is just a few minutes from some of the must-see sights in Paris, including the Eiffel Tower, Trocadéro Gardens, and Les Invalides. The afternoon will be dedicated to a guided tour of Père Lachaise Cemetery, one of the most famous resting places in the world. It might seem a bit of a macabre way to spend an afternoon, but because there are so many famous tombs, and such artistry to the graves, it becomes something like a visit to a museum. OR Leave for a guided visit of the Panthéon. The Panthéon’s iconic silhouette and dome is perched at the top of the historic Latin Quarter. Designer Jacques-Germain Soufflot began work on the church in 1757. Since the days of the French Revolution, it has been the necropolis of many well-known French figures, including Victor Hugo, Marie Curie, and Alexandre Dumas. Tonight is our festive gala evening, including a “Paris by Night” cruise to take in the city lights.
