Paris is a city brimming with many places to visit from world-class museums to art galleries, even if you have been to Paris before, there’s still more to discover on every trip.
So here’s a helpful guide on some of the MUST SEE places of Paris…
This is the world’s most popular museum and it’s entrance of being a glass pyramid is quite the spectacle. Once you enter, you will see some of the world’s most beloved timeless pieces such as Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘Mona Lisa’ and Michelangelo’s ‘Dying Slave’ – art lovers will not be able to control themselves.
The Notre-Dame Cathedral is a Gothic cathedral with incredible architecture detail to witness. It is also the setting of Victor Hugo’s literature classic “The Hunchback of Notre-Dame” and the Disney fan favourite.
The most iconic attraction, but definitely not my favourite. It was constructed in the 1889 World Exposition and is over 300 metres tall. A ride on the elevator brings you to the top where you can see stunning panoramic views over the city of Paris.
Arc de Triomphe
The stunning arc is at the Western end of the Champs-Élysées and is the most renowned arch in the entire world. There are also some stunning hotels nearby to this point that I would highly recommend booking – this is a perfect area to stay near and is very central to a lot of Paris hotspots.
This is a large hill that is best known for a lot of artists taking their inspiration including Monet, Picasso, Renoir and loads more. I love you is also written in 250 languages on the Wall of Love at Montmartre – it really is the city of love.
The famous cabaret located close to Montmartre and offers some of the best and most glamorous evening shows. The perfect place to get all dressed up, let your hair down and ruffle some feathers.
This beautiful palace is an absolute MUST when visiting Paris and wanting to explore the pure grandeur of the French history and culture. This stunning palace has grounds to worship and gardens to explore for days upon days.
