The premise of this spectacular new attraction is simple – let people soar over Paris, without a plane. Of course, you won’t actually be attached to a jet pack as you gaze down upon this bustling metropolis, but it will feel like you are.

FlyView over Paris

 

This new type of cultural attraction has already taken off in North America with FlyOver Canada and FlyOver USA. The simulator lets individuals feel like they are zooming through the air over some of the most incredible scenery that country has to offer. It has been exceptionally well-received and is, in fact, one of Vancouver’s top attractions. Now, you have the chance to do it in Paris.

Quite different from the Rockies of Canada and the prairies of the USA, the Parisian experience will take you over the winding streets of the city. You will have the chance to take in iconic landmarks such as the Champs-Elysées and the Eiffel Tower among other well-known Paris hotspots. What better way to explore what is often dubbed “the world’s most beautiful city”?

Overall, this project has taken three years to develop, with the use of drones to capture super high quality footage of the city. With the amount of time and effort that has gone in to the creation of the attraction, it is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience.

The attraction is due to open on the 31st of March 2018 and will be located near Opéra Garnier.

Those with vertigo need not worry, at no point will your feet actually be off the ground during the 13 minutes it takes to complete the virtual journey. What’s more, this ride is open to everyone over the age 8 with a minimum height requirement of 1m20.

Of course, FlyView’s ride is just one of hundreds of attractions in Paris that are worth discovering. For more great views, climb to the top of the Arc de Triomphe or the Eiffel Tower. Alternatively, get some culture at one of the city’s magnificent museums and galleries. The Louvre, home to the Mona Lisa, and Musée d’Orsay are the best known and most popular museums but smaller galleries shouldn’t be overlooked. The Orangerie near the Jardin des Tuileries is a captivating gallery that is home to Monet’s lilypad paintings and is well worth checking out.

Once you’ve made the most of your time in Paris, why not get on a rental car and hit the road out of the city into the beautiful French countryside. In just a few hours you can get from Paris to a number of France’s other fabulous regions. Why not take a wine tour in Bordeaux? Or, go for a stroll along the coast in the Basque Country? Or just kick back on the beach in Nice?

There is a lot of beauty to discover in France and we want to help you make the most of your time here. Get in touch with and let us know where your interests lie so we can make you the perfect bespoke itinerary.

We just returned from a 15 day trip to Paris, the Loire Valley and Normandy. Our trip was planned by Emilie with precise attention to detail, giving us our perfect itinerary.

My husband and I just returned from two magnificent weeks in France that included four nights in Paris, four nights in the Loire Valley, two nights near Mont Saint Michel, three nights in Bayeux, near the WWII Landing Beaches and one night at a CDG airport hôtel. We stayed in charming B&Bs with equally charming hosts who recommended great places to …

If I had to sum up our trip in one word it would just have to be WOW! But of course it is impossible to describe the trip of a lifetime in just one word. The detail and care that Emilie put into planning our trip was AMAZING. Every place we stayed, every outing she planned, every person that she put us in contact was wonderful. My husband and I …

Staying in B&B’s is a great way to see the country and meet the people who live there in their normal environment. And, “France Just for You” provides an excellent way to have this experience.

My wife and I took a road trip in the Normandy, Loire Valley and Burgundy regions of France last May. The road trip was 17 days long. The trip was planned by Emilie, the owner of "France Just For You". Emilie sent us a 400+ page personalized guide book before we set off to France. She booked our rental car, all the B&B's and 3 guided tours. We got …

My wife and I were planning a special trip to Provence and although we didn't want a canned tour, we did want support to ensure we didn't miss out on experiences we simply weren't aware of. In our search we got lucky and found Emilie. She interviewed us in advance so she could customize the trip to our desires and interests and ultimately created …
