The 10 things you simply must see in Paris

Everyone falls in love with a different part of Paris. Whether you visit for the romantic gardens, the bohemian streets of Montmartre, the couture fashion, or the art history: there is always another gem waiting for you around the corner.

  • Eiffel Tower

    1. Eiffel Tower

    The crown jewel of the Paris skyline is even more spectacular up close. Booking Eiffel Tower tickets in advance will let you bypass the tourist crowds and go straight to the top.

  • Seine River

    2. Seine River

    Does it get any more romantic than a boat cruise down the Seine, taking in the sights and drinking champagne? Pro tip: You can get incredible Eiffel Tower photos from the river.

  • Moulin Rouge

    3. Moulin Rouge

    Dedicate a Parisian night to the Moulin Rouge. Go put on your best outfit, and make your way to the Pigalle District to pay homage to the birthplace of the can-can.

  • Musee du Louvre

    4. Musee du Louvre

    It would take nine months to glance at every work inside of the Louvre museum. Prioritizing is key! A tour guide can help point out interesting pieces and keep you stress-free.

  • Palace of Versailles

    5. Palace of Versailles

    There is no greater luxury than seeing this ornate splendor up close. Bike through the gardens of the Palace of Versailles, tour the king's apartments, and take as many photos as they'll let you!

  • Disneyland Paris

    6. Disneyland Paris

    If you're looking for a little family fun, the European Magical Kingdom is located just outside the city. You can book transportation with your Disneyland Paris ticket, which is incredibly helpful.

  • Paris Catacombs

    7. Paris Catacombs

    The underground ossuaries of Paris house the remains of six million people. Nicknamed "The World's Largest Grave," the Paris Catacombs are certainly a curiosity worth exploring.

  • Notre Dame Cathedral

    8. Notre Dame Cathedral

    Although still an icon of Paris, Notre Dame de Paris was heavily damaged by fire on April 15, 2019. Visits to "Our Lady of Paris" have been canceled for the foreseeable future.

  • Champs-Élysées

    9. Champs-Élysées

    The Champs-Élysées, the world's most beautiful avenue, leads from the Arc de Triomphe to Place de la Concorde and into the Tuileries garden. During Christmas, you'll see all those trees spectacularly alight.

  • Arc de Triomphe

    10. Arc de Triomphe

    Standing tall in the Place Charles de Gaulle, this monument honors those who fought in the French Revolution and Napoleonic War. Go to the top of the Arc de Triomphe for incredible views.

Frequently asked questions about Paris

What top attractions are a must-see in Paris?

Planning Your Visit

  • What should you know before you arrive in Paris?

    In a city this crowded with people and this steeped in tradition, you should decide which attractions you want to see in advance. Know which museums are a must-visit for your group. Make dinner reservations. Decide which neighborhoods you want to explore. Figure out how to beat the crowds at the Musee d'Orsay.

  • How big is Paris?

    If you haven't been to Paris before, you may be surprised by how sprawling the city is compared to other, more walkable tourist destinations like Rome or Barcelona. (You can certainly walk -- but the Métro will help you zip around quicker!) Try to organize your sightseeing by neighborhood, so that you're not racing across the city several times a day.

  • How many days should you spend in Paris?

    It depends! It really will help to prioritize what you want to see before you go, and map out how long it will take you to see everything on your list. You could easily fill five days with tours and major attractions -- but remember to dedicate time to strolling down the Seine, shopping your way through the Marais, and drinking a Kir Royal at a sidewalk cafe.

Great experience - the tour guide was really lovely (I can't remember her name, she was petite and just the sweetest ever!!) We recommend going at night - when it lights up its so gorgeous. The only negative, there was absolutely no social distancing. In fact, it was encouraged to get closer. This was a bit stressful for us because we were trying our best to stay distanced (we were doing Covid tests whilst away to be able to come home) So we just would've liked the opportunity for distancing.

Olivia was a fun and energetic guide. She clearly loves what she does. She was a great driver, too! This is a long day but it’s interesting to experience the differences between the wild gardens of Monet and the structured gardens at Versailles. Enjoy!

Εξαιρετικη!!!! Φοβερή οργάνωση και τα εισιτήρια έρχονται αμέσως στο email. Εξυπηρέτηση και έλεγχος εισιτηρίων στο κινητό σου.

Ay 9: line for thé crêpes and line for the cruise, quite some people but the boat was big enough.

Delícioso passeio de barco passando pelos principais pontos turísticos.
