If this is your first time in Paris, you may want to spend some time at the world-famous Eiffel Tower, Louvre and Notre Dame Cathedral, but don’t miss the other gems of the city, such as Musée d’Orsay, Luxembourg Garden or Le Marais. You can’t do everything: visiting museums, shopping, peeking in the cemetery, exploring the area, participating in opera events, so plan your own itinerary, visit nearby attractions in a group and visit Paris yourself. Or book a guided tour and explore all corners of the city with the help of locals.
If we have to choose ten places, then here is the places we recommend, you should visit in Paris. Let’s go out in love!
Without the symbolic Eiffel Tower, what would Paris be like? It was built by Gustave Eiffel to celebrate the centenary of the French Revolution and was exhibited at the Paris World Exposition in 1889. With a height of 324 meters, it is one of the most visited monuments in the world, with nearly 7 million visitors every year
On the first floor is the Eiffel Tower 58, which extends over two floors and, as the name suggests, is 58 meters above the ground. On the second floor, the best view is 115m, because you can enjoy the view of diving from the ground below it. Finally, on the third floor at 275 meters, you can see Gustave Eiffel’s office. For the adventurous, you can use ladders and climb stairs (reaching the top of the mountain in 1665).
Climbing the Eiffel Tower is the only way to enjoy the magnificent scenery of Paris.
One of the most enduring symbols of Paris: Notre Dame de Paris, also known as Notre Dame de Paris, is a Roman Catholic cathedral located in the eastern half of the city of Le Germain. It is widely regarded as one of the best examples of French Gothic architecture in France and Europe. The cathedral was built in 1163 and completed in 1345. On both sides of its gate are many sculptures and gargoyles decorated with ceilings, which is an attraction.
We recommend that you visit the cathedral, then walk into the church and climb the 387 steps to the spire. Climbing to the top of the tower can be troublesome, but you can enjoy a panoramic view of the area and you can see the famous gargoyle up close.
The Louvre is the most visited art museum in the world. Located in the centre of Paris, this historic building is a former royal palace, covering an area of 210,000 square meters and including 60,600 galleries. Located in the Louvre, the museum was originally a castle built in the late 12th century during the reign of Philip II. The remains of the castle appear in the museum cellar.
The group is divided into eight parts:
Under the influence of ancient Roman architecture, Napoleon commissioned Jean Chalgrin to design the triumphal arch to commemorate the glory of the imperial army. Built-in the 19th century, it is the largest monument of its kind in the world. Its corners are decorated with impressive carvings. In addition, 558 generals and the names of great victories are engraved on the vault. Below the Arc de Triomphe is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in France.
The panoramic terrace above the door offers great views of Paris. The Arc de Triomphe (Arc de Triomphe) is 50 meters high, 45 meters wide and 22 meters deep. It is located at Place de l’Etoile and leads to the Champs Elysees. It is known as “the most beautiful in the world.” street”. There are only 1.9 kilometres between the Place de la Concorde and the Arc de Triomphe. There are many luxury boutiques (Louis Vuitton, Cartier, Guerlain, Montblanc…), entertainment venues (Lido, cinema), popular cafes and restaurants (Fuquet).
Find the best way to visit the “City of Light” and take a boat trip on the Seine, especially at night. When the sun goes down, the traces slowly illuminate. You can see the panoramic view in the foreground and enjoy the beauty of Paris: the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Alexandre III Bridge and so on.
You can also enjoy a dinner cruise on the Seine by boat. About 2 hours, you’re welcome.
Montmartre is a hill in the north of Paris, 130 meters high, named after its surrounding communities. It is famous for its Sacred Heart Cathedral, with a white dome on top. It was completed in 1919 and pays tribute to the French victims of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870.
If you are in the area, visit Tertre Square, just a few blocks from the church. There are many artists who prepare their paintings to colour or display their works for tourists. Place du Tertre is reminiscent of Montmartre as the centre of Art Nouveau in the early 20th century. Many artists work there, such as Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh. The Espace Salvador Dali Museum (Espace Salvador Dali Museum) is a museum dedicated mainly to sculptures and drawings by Spanish painters, just a short walk from Tirtre Square.
The famous Moulin Rouge cabaret is located in Montmartre.
The castle of Versailles is the most famous castle in France. Built-in the 17th century, the Palace of Versailles was a symbol of French military power and French hegemony in Europe. From 1682 to 1789, it was the seat of the political power of the Kingdom of France. This huge complex of buildings, gardens and terraces is definitely a must for any visitor who will be fascinated by luxurious accommodation, luxurious decorations, furnishings and stunning Renaissance art.
Visit Versailles: You will start from the government apartments and the famous Hall of Mirrors, the Queen’s Room. Don’t forget to stroll in the famous “French” garden.
The Latin Quarter of Paris is located on the left bank of the Seine, near Sorbonne. The Latin Quarter is known for its student life, lively atmosphere and bistros. It is home to several higher education institutions, such as the École Normale Supérieure in Paris, the Paris University of Mining and the Polytechnique de Paris. The name of the region comes from Latin, which is an international language learned in the middle Ages and is popular both inside and outside the university.
The Luxembourg Gardens is a private park open to the public. The park was built with the Luxembourg Palace in 1612 at the request of Marie de Medici. The Parisians affectionately call him a “lunatic”. The park surrounds the Palais du Luxembourg, where the Senate is located. Redesigned by André LeNôtre, walking is a pleasure. You will also find an orchard, many types of apples, an apiary and a greenhouse with orchids. There are 106 statues, a bronze statue of the Statue of Liberty, and 3 beautiful fountains.
The Moulin Rouge is a singing and dancing show, known as the spiritual home of the famous French city Cancan. It is located at the foot of Montmartre in the centre of Pigalle and was built in 1889 by Joseph Euler and Charles Zidler. The Cannes film was first introduced as a courtship dance, which made the birth of the song and dance performance possible, which is now seen in many countries in the world. Today, the Moulin Rouge has become a tourist attraction that provides entertainment for tourists from all over the world.
His style and name have been imitated and taken from other clubs around the world, such as Las Vegas. In addition, several films have also contributed to the reputation of singing and dancing performances, such as the 2001 film “Baz Luhrmann’s movie” starring Nicole Kidman and Iwan McGregor.
