    Zeppelin Ride Offers Panoramic View of Paris

    Paris never runs out of ideas to entertain visitors. As summer was in full sway in September, the passenger zeppelin Airship Paris was launched in the Aeroprte de Pontoise north of Paris. Since then, the “old-school” air transport has drawn a crowd of tourists lining up to enjoy the latest attraction in the city.

    Zeppelin’s are similar to blimps except that these are rigid and built with an internal framework. Blimps, on the other hand are non-rigid, its balloon’s shape inflated only by the air pressure inside it and are collapsible when not in use. A popular blimp that is familiar to sports fans especially in football-loving America is the Goodyear blimp that has graced many sporting events.

    The Airship Paris zeppelin carries a cabin that can accommodate up to 12 passengers and offers a panoramic view of Paris. At the height equivalent to that of the Eiffel Tower, viewers can see the whole of Paris and nearby chateaus. Passengers can take pictures and enjoy the silence as they do it, since the balloon is lifted only by hot air. Even for those who have already viewed Paris on top the Eiffel or from the Montparnasse Tower at Le Ciel de Paris, the view from the cabin is a fresh and unique experience.

    A ride on the Airship Paris may be included in one’s itinerary and vacation rental arrangements. Many opt to stay in furnished apartments rather than in expensive hotels in the city’s arrondissement. Paris Vacation Rentals (, for example, offer fully furnished apartments located in several arrondissement. They also accept long term leases for those that are in Paris for business or education.

    Just like the City of Lights, Paris Vacation Rentals find new ways to make every visit unique. Visit to see these, compare their competitive rates, and make a reservation.
