What Must You See And Visit During A Paris Vacation?

It’s easy to see why Paris has been dubbed the city of love and light. The language, delectable cuisine, and iconic landmarks preserved through romantic traditions create love stories that only Paris can tell.

What Must You See And Visit During A Paris Vacation?

If you had to choose five places, here are the ones we would recommend:

Eiffel Tower

Nicknamed the “Iron Lady”, the Eiffel Tower is a masterpiece of architectural genius. The 330-meter-tall tower, once the world’s tallest building, merits a position among the Seven Wonders of the World.

The sight of the Eiffel Tower is an unforgettable experience for many first-time visitors. There are three floors to the iconic attraction; the lowest two floors offer fine dining, while the top level is reserved solely for soaking in the breathtaking views. The ascent of the Eiffel Tower is a must to enjoy the magnificent Paris city vision and even see the engineer Gustave Eiffel’s apartment on display.

Musée du Louvre

If you could only visit one museum in Paris, the Musée du Louvre should be at the top of your list. A magnificent palace once home to France’s kings, the Musée du Louvre displays thousands of artworks, many of which are considered masterpieces.

The Louvre’s collection includes the famed Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo Da Vinci as well as Baroque masterpieces that will blow your mind. Additionally, the museum houses an impressive collection of Mesopotamian, Greek, Roman, and French antiques, miniatures, tapestries, and jewellery.

Take a Trip to the Château De Versailles

The world-famous Versailles Palace is a lavish complex outside of Paris that was once home to French royalty. The magnificent palace was built in a futuristic style using a fusion of numerous architectural designs and the majority of imported raw materials.

The Château de Versailles enchants visitors with its hallways of mirrors made from 357 mirrors purchased in Venice, the royal park adorned with statues and blooming flora, and the exquisite collection of Renaissance-era artwork.

Cruise on the Seine

A cruise along the River Seine can offer fresh perspectives and picturesque joys, even for seasoned visitors. You get a panoramic view to the front, allowing you to take in the splendour of Paris: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, and Notre Dame Cathedral, to name a few.

Taking in the elegance and culture of Paris isn’t all you can do on the river cruise. A romantic dinner cruise soothed by the sound of the piano and violin, bathed in the glistening reflections of the lights of Paris on the Seine would be magical.

Watch the Sunset from the Steps of the Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre

Perched high above Paris, Montmartre is a Roman-Byzantine masterpiece that has captivated visitors for centuries with its stunning landscapes, vibrant nightlife, illustrious art history, and rich archaeological heritage.

The panoramic views from the Sacré Coeur’s stairway and dome’s summit will leave you awestruck. A sunset stroll is recommended, and if you stay long enough, you’ll see the Eiffel Tower’s glittering lights illuminate the skyline. Though if you can’t fit that into your schedule, definitely visit the Square of Tertre, a few blocks from the Basilica. Numerous artists have set up easels to paint visitors or exhibit their work.

Sleep In Style

If you’re planning to be in the French capital for a short or long period of time, I’d suggest looking for accommodation in some of the beautiful holiday rentals in Paris. Located throughout the city and close to the iconic places we’ve mentioned above – you’ll easily find an ideal and luxurious place to rest your head.

As you can see, there is so much to do in this French city that you will never be able to get enough of it. Aside from the above, you can immerse yourself in Parisian culture by visiting clubs, restaurants, and coffee shops.
