The Eiffel Tower
As the pièce de résistance of this city, there’s no way that you can go to Paris without seeing this beauty. Standing tall above the hustle and bustle of Paris, this structure not only looks good from the ground, but it also looks good when you get to the viewing platform. You can see for miles, and you can truly take in the size and the extravagance of the City of Lights. Once you make your way back down to the ground, make sure you return again at night to check out the twinkling lights.
The Louvre is one of the most famous museums in the world, and it’s also one of the most popular. Recognized by the giant glass dome in the center of the courtyard, this museum houses some of the most incredible works of art known to humankind. More than anything, tourists travel across the globe to see the real Mona Lisa in front of them. It may be a little smaller than you imagined, but it’s definitely worth seeing it in the flesh.
Any movie set in France will show you a shot of the Champs-Elysees because this is the home of the Arc de Triomphe. The famous archway really does need to be seen to be believed, and then it makes sense to see what the rest of this street has to offer. With designer shops and incredible coffee shops, you can shop until you drop and then rest your weary legs.
Paris is a must-see for anyone, but it’s important to note that it does get busy. Because of this, we’d recommend buying any ticketed attractions before you arrive!
