This is a stunning tour where we run along the Seine banks among historic buildings, monuments and gardens in the heart of Paris. We enjoy the world famous sights such as the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum and the Grand Palais.
On the right bank, runners will venture through the Musée du Louvre and the Grand Palais. Long before it was a museum of art, the spectacular Louvre was a Royal Palace, constantly growing in size under a succession of French Kings. As the running tour continues runners will instantly see the exuberant Grand Palais with its surprising glass dome, which was created for the Universal Exhibition of 1900.
Crossing the Seine runners are greeted by the most iconic building in Paris and the city’s defining symbol – The Eiffel Tower. The sheer size and beautiful surrounding call for a stop to hear about the history of the tower from 1889 and of course snap a picture or two.
The list of incredible sights and historic buildings does not stop here and next up on the running tour is Musée d’Orsay. The museum was originally built as a train station, and today the impressive Museum is specialized in French art from the second half of the 19th century.
This 7 km tour is the perfect opportunity to see the main sights of Paris such as the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre Museum, while enjoying the incredible parks and breathing in the atmosphere of the French capital.
