Sights Covered in Bateaux Parisiens Tour

Eiffel Tower

The majestic Eiffel Tower in Paris needs no introduction. With a height of 330 metres, the Eiffel Tower was formerly the tallest man-made structure on the planet. The brilliant iron meshwork and the imposing height of the tower are what make it such a popular tourist destination in the world. Today, it attracts over six million visitors every year and is the most recognized landmark of Paris. Luckily, on a Bateau Parisien, you can catch both morning and night views of this iconic structure.

Musee d'Orsay

Musee d'Orsay is one of the many spectacular art museums in France. It is in fact counted among the largest art museums in Europe. Every year, Musee d'Orsay attracts a large number of visitors and is renowned for holding the world's largest collection of Impressionist paintings. From Van Gogh to Renoir, you can view exquisite artworks ever produced in the world under a single roof. In addition to its art collection, Musee d'Orsay is also famous for its stunning architecture.

 Pantheon

In the 18th century, the French architect Jacques-Germain Soufflot designed a Parisian Pantheon inspired by the Roman Pantheon. This magnificent monument was built to replace an ancient church dedicated to Saint Genevieve, the patron saint of France. Its architecture is identical to the Roman Pantheon, but its interior is decorated with paintings from French history. The Pantheon became a memorial for French heroes during the French Revolution, and many renowned French personalities, like Marie Curie, Voltaire, and Van Hugo, are buried here.

Notre Dame

The Notre Dame Cathedral is a magnificent site located on the Île-de-la-Cité. It is one of the most popular locations in Paris and was formerly the city's tallest building, standing at 70 metres. This cathedral features typical Gothic architecture, including stained-glass windows and lofty flying buttresses. The construction of Notre Dame began in the 12th century and lasted about 200 years, employing countless architects and stonecutters. Even though a large portion of the ancient cathedral was damaged in a devastating fire, you may still admire its stunning grandeur on a river cruise tour.

Besides its enormous archways and splendid architecture, the Conciergerie is also famous for its history.

Tennis leaders’ crucial London meeting as they search for peace and money

MONTE-CARLO, MONACO - APRIL 12:  Alex De Minaur of Australia in action against Novak Djokovic of Serbia during the quarter-final match on day six of the Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters at Monte-Carlo Country Club on April 12, 2024 in Monte-Carlo, Monaco. (Photo by Julian Finney/Getty Images)

A little more than a month ago, a series of meetings of the top leaders of tennis ended in acrimony . The heads of the Grand Slams accused the leaders of the tour of undercutting their efforts to reshape the sport by plotting a series of backchannel deals with Saudi Arabia.

Now, another summit is about to get underway. 

Advertisement

After weeks of virtual discussions The leaders of the Grand Slams and the men’s and women’s tennis tours will convene in London this week to try to forge some sort of compromise that will solve a series of challenges facing the game.

Those problems essentially boil down to this:

How can they bring more money into tennis and grow interest amid increasing competition, without overtaxing players who are demanding a streamlined schedule and compensation comparable to their far wealthier counterparts in other sports?

The ultimate solution, people connected to the discussions say, could even spell significant changes or perhaps even the end of the Paris Masters — a top indoor men’s tournament known as ‘Bercy’ — in favor of a new event in Saudi Arabia.

At the most recent summit with the sport’s top leaders, Gilles Moretton, the president of France’s Tennis Federation, the FFT, which owns the French Open and the Bercy tournament, said he would not let Bercy be the obstacle to peace in the sport, opening the door to a potential compromise. 

beautex cruise london

The media relations staff of the FFT did not respond to requests for comment. 

The reporting in this story is based on interviews with several people involved with and with knowledge of the ongoing discussions. They requested anonymity to avoid jeopardizing their professional relationships. All described the situation as fluid with the ultimate solution, if one can be found, still a long way off even with Moretton’s offer of the Bercy olive branch.

How to fix tennis

Tennis, which is run by at least seven separate organizations, has long been rife with conflicts between rival groups looking to protect their specific interests. 

This latest civil war has ostensibly pitted the Grand Slams against the men’s and women’s tours, but mainly Andrea Gaudenzi, the chairman of the ATP Tour. 

The Grand Slams — Wimbledon, and the French, U.S. and Australian Opens — want to create a premium tour that would resemble Formula 1 racing. It would include their competitions, 10 top-level mixed, outdoor events, and a season-ending tour finals for the top men and women. It would start in January and end by early November.

Only roughly the top 100 players would qualify for the premium tour. Another series of lower-level tournaments would exist largely as a qualifying competition for the premium tour, though players from the premium tour may be able to participate in those events to receive appearance fees and match practice — and to make them more appealing to fans. 

The plan has existed largely as a calendar and a series of reports from consultants projecting a boost in money from sponsorships and increased payments for television and streaming rights. What it does not yet have is any concrete financial backing, a major sticking point for the owners of the top-level tournaments the Grand Slams want to include in their premium tour. What it does have is appeal to both players and fans, as a respite to a schedule that is tough to follow on-court and on-screen because of its, at times, illogical jumps around the globe and relentless run of matches.

The venture would be a big lift for the Grand Slams, especially now, as they try to forge ahead on other projects. The USTA, which owns the U.S. Open, has begun to seek approval for another major renovation of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, which would include construction of a new player performance center, a hospitality hub and, eventually, renovations to Arthur Ashe Stadium. Wimbledon is pursuing a massive expansion onto a neighboring golf course.

Saudi Arabia's new $1billion proposal and the battle to control tennis

On the other side iGaudenzi, the chairman of the ATP Tour, who largely favors a status quo that many players say is unacceptable, and that is before Gaudenzi’s plan to add yet another top-level tournament to the schedule, likely in Saudi Arabia. His counter to the premium plan would be its limitations on showcasing tennis as a remarkable, 24/7/365 sport, one of few truly global spectacles.

beautex cruise london

That tournament is at the center of Gaudenzi’s promise of roughly $1billion in investments in tennis from Saudi Arabia, a country with an ugly record of human rights abuses, laws that oppress women, and where homosexuality can result in a death sentence. The kingdom’s sovereign wealth fund, the Public Investment Fund, is a leading bidder for that event, and the women’s tour is likely to join if Saudis win the auction , which people involved say should conclude sometime this spring.

Inside Saudi Arabia’s growing influence in sport

  • Why the country bought into Premier League soccer
  • Mohamed Salah, Saudis and the politics behind deal
  • Golf, F1 and cycling… why they are buying sport
  • The 2034 World Cup and what it means

This month, the women’s tour announced a lucrative but controversial three-year deal with Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Sport to hold its season-ending WTA Finals in Riyadh . 

While Gaudenzi’s plan comes with an infusion of cash, mostly from the sale of the license for the new tournament, critics say it lacks any real plan for sustained future growth. Nothing would change about the sport’s fractured business, in which tournaments compete against one another for sponsorships and television deals.

His move is akin to a sports league selling an expansion franchise to a new city. Only, in this case, Gaudenzi is essentially selling a slot in the calendar without the ability to create more weeks of the year.

That problem sparked this latest war between the Grand Slams and Gaudenzi, who last summer tried to cut a deal to hold a tournament in Saudi Arabia at the start of the season. Early January is the only month of the professional tennis season when there is no Grand Slam or top-level event for either tour and the Saudi climate would allow such an event to take place. 

A top-level January tournament in Saudi Arabia for men and women would likely kill the tuneup events for the Australian Open in Australia and New Zealand that Tennis Australia, the owner and organizer of the Australian Open, largely controls. In response, Craig Tiley, the chief executive of Tennis Australia, pushed to create the premium tour, which could be a major blow to Gaudenzi’s ATP Tour, and the scores of lower-level tournaments that don’t make the premium tour.

beautex cruise london

An obvious compromise, people involved with the talks say, is to find a way to hold a tournament in Saudi Arabia, collect the roughly $1billion and make it part of a premium tour, with money from that circuit providing support to the smaller tournaments. 

But if a Saudi tournament did not take place in January, there are only two other months when the Saudi climate would even allow it — immediately following the Australian Open in February, when both tours play events in Dubai and the women play a tournament in Doha, or in October, in place of Bercy.

The US is planning to help Israel shoot down any incoming missiles and drones from Iran and is moving two US Navy destroyers nearby, according to reports — as the Jewish state awaits retaliation for its assassination of an Iranian Revolutionary Guard leader.

The tense situation in the Middle East was compounded on Saturday after Hezbollah, an Iran proxy in Lebanon, launched 40 rockets into northern Israel.

מטוסי קרב תקפו לפני זמן קצר מתחם צבאי נרחב של ארגון הטרור חיזבאללה במרחב ריחן ובו מבנים צבאיים ועמדה צבאית pic.twitter.com/fQ0TbJtzb4 — צבא ההגנה לישראל (@idfonline) April 13, 2024

The Israeli military responded hours later with airstrikes on Hezbollah targets in Lebanon, the Israel Defense Forces announced .

Some of Hezbollah’s rockets were intercepted, while others fell into open areas, the military explained.

No casualties were reported.

Israel is still on high alert for a direct attack from Iran, which experts said was expected imminently. However, Hezbollah’s rocket attack appeared to be just another continuation of cross-border attacks that the terrorist group has been carrying out regularly since the Israel-Gaza war began.

By Friday, the US moved two guided-missile destroyers capable of intercepting drones and incoming missiles closer to Israel in anticipation of the attack, the Wall Street Journal reported .

The US is prepared to help Israel incept missiles from Iran, which is reportedly readying a revenge strike for the April 1 Israeli attack that killed seven Iranian military officers, CNN reported , citing sources.

One person familiar with US intelligence told the outlet that the country had readied as many as 100 cruise missiles.

Joe Biden

Tehran’s direct attack on Israeli soil would mark a serious escalation of the Israel-Hamas war in the Gaza Strip, which now threatens to give way to a larger regional conflict.

Both Hamas and Hezbollah are backed by Iran, and Tehran has been accused of encouraging the former’s Oct. 7 terror attack on southern Israel.

President Biden said Friday that the revenge attack would come “sooner than later.”

“Don’t,” the president cautioned Tehran.

A black-and-white video still of a large explosion from above.

“We are devoted to the defense of Israel. We will support Israel and help defend Israel and Iran will not succeed,” he added.

The US recently observed Iran moving military assets internally, CNN reported.

Even with US support, it would be difficult for Israel to defend itself from such massive bombardment , one expert told CBS News on Friday.

“Iran will bear the consequences for choosing to escalate the situation any further,” IDF Rear Admiral Daniel Hagari vowed Saturday .

Israel also coped with internal strife Saturday as settlers in the West Bank rampaged through the village of al-Mughayyir and injured six Palestinians,  the Times of Israel reported .

Footage from the scene showed the illegal settlers firing in the direction of the Palestinians and throwing stones at them, the outlet said.

One person was critically wounded after being shot in the head.

The clash broke out shortly after the body of Benjamin Achimeir – a 14-year-old Israeli boy from Jerusalem – was found near al-Mughayyir, the Times of Israel explained.

Achimeir vanished early Friday when he went out shepherding. The IDF has classified his murder as a terror attack, the Times of Israel noted.

Before the teen’s body was found, Israeli settlers set fire to houses and cars in al-Mughayyir, the outlet said.

One person, 26-year-old Jehad Abu Alia, was killed in that initial conflict.

Tensions between Israeli settlers and Palestinians in the West Bank have heated up in the months since Oct. 7, sparking concerns that Hamas will take advantage of the conflict to infiltrate those communities.
