On our “Best of Paris” route we focus on all of the most famous monuments in Paris. Some of the highlights on this route include: The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Orsay Museum, and the place where we cut off Marie-Antoinette’s head!

On our “Latin Quarter + Le Marais” route we stay away from the famous and focus on the lesser known charms of Paris. Some of the highlights on this route include: The Shakespeare and Co. Bookstore, the oldest café in the world, Street art displays, and a 2000 year old Roman arena. This route also cycles past the Luxembourg garden and on the rue des Rosiers.
The Best of Paris vs. The Latin Quarter + Le Marais
Most of the “Best of Paris” route is on dedicated bike paths, in open parks, in the courtyards of monuments, and along the river banks where no motorized traffic is allowed to go. The rest of this tour is run on quiet back streets and clearly marked bike lanes. Making it our safest and easiest to cycle route and great for all ages of kids.
All of the “Latin Quarter + Le Marais” route is on small, typically Parisian, backstreets. There can be light traffic on this route but in general there are more pedestrians than cars. While the route is very safe it can be slightly more tricky for very young cyclists to navigate (cobble stones). So, if your kids are under 10 years old, and want to cycle solo, we do not recommend choosing this route.
