Action Packed City Tours – From Paris to Rome by Privée

The Privée team of Concierge & Lifestyle Managers are always at hand to ensure smooth successful organisation for any occasion. This week, with only 36 hours’ notice, we were busy putting together a fantastic four-day city break, stopping off in the romantic location of Paris, and then onto the historic city of Rome for one Privée member and their family.

In Paris Privée organised a three-day adventure with specialist historical guides to retell Paris’ story as if it were their own. Image The three days permitted the family to a ‘classic Paris tour’, which entitled them to an all-embracing expedition of the key Parisian sights, together with a delicious tasting of the best French specialities in the heart of Paris, an excursion to the Versailles Palace and gardens with fast track entry into the Chateau and a walking photo tour of Paris. Following this the family experienced a hands-on cooking class in a private loft-style ‘atelier’ in the heart of the ‘Batignolles’ district. To bring the first stop of the thriving city break to a close, Privée arranged for an exclusive private tour of The Louvre, bringing a personal touch to the experience with our very own art-history experts where they understand that sharing their wisdom through wacky anecdotes can go a lot further than cramming in the boring facts. A few days filled with culture and all delivered completely seamlessly for our member.

Leaving Paris, the family began the second slice of their break by heading to Rome. Privée co-ordinated a one-day visit touring the most significant historical highpoints of this most extraordinary city. Image The stay included visits to Capitoline Hill, known for one of the most beautiful views that the city has to offer of the Roman Forum, alongside a stop off to the Roman Colosseum with a personal guide to help stimulate the imagination. The brief visit explored the greatest of Emperors, the succession of Popes, the ruins of Imperial Rome and the masterpieces of Michelangelo at the Sistine Chapel and Bernini at St. Peter’s Cathedral.
