Cycling guide in Paris from Notre-Dame to the Eiffel Tower by
Cycling to the Eiffel Tower

Enjoy Paris intensely in cinemascope with this 8km bike ride, visit Paris as a first-timer in a free and fun way on your saddle, admiring on the way the iconic monuments of the Right Bank, or simply take your time while connecting the two mythical symbols of the Capital. You will find the itinerary as detailed below.
From the front of Notre Dame, cycle across the Seine River on Pont Neuf to reach the Halles (which is currently building up its future with its gigantic canopy and its “prairie” green space). You will come across a garden, ancient but secluded, the garden of Palais Royal, through the discreet but ever so quaint Rue de Valois. You will then arrive at Place Vendome, where you will be overwhelmed, not only by the designer-branded boutiques that surround the square but also by its imposing column and its flawlessness that outlines the perspective of Paris from a distance. Carry on along the arcades of Rue de Rivoli until you reach the immense Place de la Concorde, marvel at the view of the incredible stretch of Pont Alexandre III with Hotel des Invalides in the background. And if you still feel up to more fun, go for a ride on the banks of the Seine River and its thousands shows, which will lead you to the eternal Iron Lady of Paris, the Eiffel Tower.
