Paris is a great city to be outside when the sun is shining. There are plenty of places in the city that makes it a joyful experience for all its visitors. It offers spaces to indulge in your favorite outdoor activity. Below is a discussion on some of the top outdoor activities you can participate in during your private tours Paris.
Renting a bicycle is as easy as anything in Paris. You simply have to visit a Vélib station with a credit card. You will have to pick the instructions on the screen and select a bike. The first 30 minutes are free of cost. You can bike through the endless series of streets and scenic parks along the River Seine. Although helmets are not mandatory in Paris, it is recommended to bring your own helmets especially if you are taking your kids with you.
If you prefer a little more speed, it is recommended to try moving around the city on a Segway. It is a motorized chariot which you can move through the sidewalks guided by an expert. This type of tour does not allow small kids. The older kids of 12 to 17 years must have an adult accompanying them to be able to ride.
Hot Air Balloon Rides
This is clearly one of the coolest ways to see Paris in all its glory. You can stay suspended in mid-air as you witness the beauty of the city and its marvels from above. Visit the Park André Citroen and you will find balloons that will carry you 150 meters up in the air. Make sure you run a weather check first.
Train or Tram Trips
Hop on board the le Petit Train and snake your way through the Montmartre neighborhood and its attractive streets. The train will take you through the localities that were home to Picasso and Modigliani. You also have the option of traveling on the tram. Watch the city life as it slowly carries you up to the hill all the way to Basilica of Sacre Coeur in under two minutes. You can spend some time on the steps here or get a caricature done by one of the several artists seated in the square at Place du Tertre.
Overall, Paris’s visual treats can be best admired when you use one of the above means to explore the city.
