When the word Paris comes out, we think of romance, luxurious and top fashion designers, haute couture, fine cuisine, French baguette and the Eiffel Tower. But Paris offers more than you can think of and that is why most people can’t get enough. No wonder it is also known as the City of Light. I have narrowed down the things we did and visited while in Paris.
Because we can’t get enough of the panoramic view from Eiffel Tower, we went to the top twice.
Notre Dame Cathedral
The view from top also offers a magnificent view.
The museum is huge that it is impossible to finish it in one day – so plan to go twice. My favorite part of the museum is the Mona Lisa painting.
Walking the avenue des Champs Elysee
You can’t really have a full Paris experience without walking on this very expensive avenue. Start from the Place de la Concorde then ends at the Arc de Triomphe or vice versa.
Arc de Triomphe
Inspired by the Roman triumphal arches, this 18th century monument is one of the most famous structures in Paris. Arc de Triomphe is located at the western end of the Champs-Élysées Avenue and/or at the center of the Place de l’Étoile.
Boat Tour of the Seine River
This is also a must when in Paris. The view from the boat is just exceptional.
Palace of Versailles
Visiting this grand palace makes our trip extra special. We took a 1 – 1.5 hour train or so called RER from Paris to the Château de Versailles.
Located in the Latin quarter this beautiful and elegant park is filled with magnificent works of arts, fountains and orchards.
If you like topless or cabaret show, this is it. Unfortunately, cameras are not allowed inside. Enjoy a bottle of champagne while watching talented women showcasing their bright, colorful, unique and beautiful costumes.
Sacré-Cœur and Montmartre
Also known as the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris is located close to the iconic Moulin Rouge. Plan to visit this Roman Catholic Church on the same day you are headed to watch the Moulin Rouge.
Place de la Concorde
Largest and most famous square; showcasing Fontaine des Mers and Fontaine des Fleuves (monumental fountains in Paris), Obélisque de LuxorOne
