The countless attractions of Paris are known throughout the world. And yet... there are still unsuspected treasures and unusual places waiting to be discovered by visitors to the capital in search of another facet of the City of Light. You may already have done a bicycle ride or a tour in a sidecar, so now it’s time to see Paris from a calèche (horse-drawn carriage)! The Hotel Paris France invites you to book your carriage ride and experience the charms of the capital in a retro way.
The timeless romance of a calèche
There is no more romantic way to see Paris than in a beautiful carriage pulled by noble horses, their hooves clip-clopping along the road. Just imagine yourself comfortably installed in this mode of transport dating from another century, sedately gliding through the picturesque Parisian streets. If you thought the last horse-drawn carriages disappeared from the City of Light long ago, think again. They’re back, to the delight of visitors with romantic souls, evoking the Paris of another era. The rides, lasting from 30 minutes to 2½ hours and driven by a fully qualified professional, are offered by the Paris Caleche company and depart from close to the Eiffel Tower, although pick-ups from elsewhere can be arranged.
The charms of the capital via horsepower
Pulled by beautiful horses, you will explore the attractive streets of Paris, taking the time to browse the most romantic quarters and get a new perspective on the capital’s emblematic monuments. See the famous Eiffel Tower, the Champ de Mars, the Pont Alexandre III, the Grand Palais, the legendary Champs-Elysées, the majestic Arc de Triomphe, the Trocadéro and more. Other tours will take you to other picturesque districts and places less well-known but well worth visiting. Various trips can be personalised, and several possible itineraries can be adapted to your desires and preferences. This unforgettable experience can be enjoyed solo, with your loved one or in a group of up to 4 people.
