One of the stars of our recent programmes, we are thrilled to offer this lovely cruise once again. The romantic city of Paris is the Capital of Capitals, for thereís no city quite like Paris, itís fascinating, itís beautiful and itís dazzling. The many sights to see include the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Sacre Coeur, Notre Dame and the Champs Elysees but the real essence of Paris is captured by the River Seine. Our accommodation is aboard the MS Botticelli a River Cruise Ship moored close to the Eiffel Tower
