Sunrise Run & Sightsee in Paris (light version)
6 km / 3.7 m
If you're a morning person, then join this early bird jog and see the main landmarks of Paris! You'll work out and sight-see before breakfast, having plenty of time to visit more in-depth later the places you liked the most during your running tour.
