Paris is a must-to-visit destination in the travel list of many tourists. Can you guess the number of people visiting Paris every year? That’s roughly 30 million people per year! With 7 million visiting the famous Eifel Tower, and 15 million visiting the EuroDisney. Eifel Tower is usually the first visual that our brain creates, but there are many other beautiful places to go in Paris.
In this article, we will explore Paris tourist places, the best locations to stay in Paris, and guide you about what to do in Paris.
Here are the ten most beautiful places to visit in Paris
The Eifel Tower
Notre Dame Cathedral
Arc of Triumph
Cruise on the Seine
Palace of Versailles
The Eifel Tower
If you are ever asked: What to do in Paris? Probably the very first thing coming to your mind will be to visit one of the iconic Paris attractions: The Eifel Tower! Built-in 1889 by Gustave Eifel, this 342 meters tall Eifel Tower has become a symbol for France and Paris. As mentioned above, this tower attracts about 7 million people globally every year.
The Eifel Tower has three floors in total. First one is 58 meters high above the ground, hence the name “First floor 58”. 2nd floor is 115 meters high, and it is the floor that will give you the best view and pictures for your gallery. The 3rd floor is 275 meters high, and here, you will be able to see its builder Gustave’s office. If you are an adventure freak, climb the stairs for all three floors (Sounds interesting! Would you?)
Notre Dame Cathedral
This famous church got its name engraved on the list of beautiful places to go to Paris. This place has a history, and it took 182 years, from 1163 to 1345, to entirely built this building.
Notre Dame Cathedral is an epitome of French and European architecture. This place has a significant place around to walk and talk, and 387 steps inside to climb up to the roof. It sounds quite tiring to climb up, but trust me, you won’t regret it. The stunning panoramic view awaits you at the top! Once you are there, you must try and reach the rooftop and capture the moment.
This Paris tourist place, the Louvre Museum, is categorized as the most visited museum in the world. That is because the museum harbors antique pieces, historical arts, and sculptures, adding variety to the gallery. There are in total of eight different categories available:
* Islamic art
* Egyptian Antiquities
* Oriental Antiquities
* Greek, Roman, and Etruscan
* Middle ages, modern times, and renaissance sculpture
* Objects of Art
* Graphic Art
Arc of Triumph/ Champ Elysees
Visible from a far distance, this icon was a dedication to the victorious imperial army soldiers in the era of Napoleon Bonaparte. That means it is a symbol of France’s triumph and power. Arc of Triumph is 50 meters high, 45 meters in width, and 22 meters in depth. France is also known for its fashion style and trends. That is the place you need to shop to get your hands on the latest brands. That is the best place to visit in Paris because of its scenic beauty surrounding the streets.
Cruise of the Seine
WoW! What a beautiful place to be at! Isn’t it looking straight out of a fairy tale? This place is one of the top Paris attractions. The river, the lights, passing under the bridge, sided with the tall green trees, and the cruise. All this, in combination, presents the picture of some Disney movie scene.
Not only this, but you also can book this cruise to have the best dinner while roaming in the river. That makes it the best location to stay in Paris as well. Imagine having dinner at this beautiful place with the panoramic view of The Eifel Tower, Notre Dame, and Pont Alexandre III? Sounds cool, doesn’t it? Yes! This place has all in it.
Can you spot the white dome in the picture? That’s what Montmartre is famous for. At the top of this dome is a cross sign, known as Basilica of Sacred Heart.
Montmartre got its name from a hill in northern Paris that’s 130 meters high. At the top of the mountain has Sacre-Cuore, the second most visited religious monument in the world. And this is what makes it the best place to go in Paris.
Not only the interior of White-headed doom is stunning, but the road and surrounding trees present a mesmerizing picture. Don’t you want to walk through that road? I do!
Palace of Versailles
Look at that magnanimous palace. It looks like a whole city to me, though (Chuckles!). Like the rest of the castles of the world, this one also signifies the power of French hegemony in Europe. Can you see the greenery all around? It is so catchy that it makes this place the best place to visit in Paris.
It is also linked with history. The architecture, the design and model, the stylish gardens, and the golden top makes it a beautiful Paris tourist place. If you are a history freak and love architecture, this place is for you!
While looking at this garden, it seems like Paris tourist places are mostly about the architecture and greenery. Don’t you agree?
Like most of the above places, this park is also a historical icon. It was created in 1612. The garden was a private one, but now, it is open for the public. Overall, this place has a very vibrant effect because of the lively atmosphere and young people who visit it frequently. This garden has its nickname, Luco, by the people of Paris.
It is one of the best places to stay in Paris because of a variety of trees, a beautiful orchid collection, and a greenhouse.
Moulin Rouge was also built-in 1889. It is considered as a sacred birthplace of French Cancan. It has become kind of a musical hub for the people of France. So it is a Paris tourist place for music and art lovers.
The attractive vibrant colors, the antique-looking decorated windmill, and funky font of the place make it attractive for the tourists who love the entertainment industry.
We had saved the surprise for the end 😊 Who has not heard the name? Being a kid, we all must have wished to have a palace at Disneyland and the magical powers. While we cannot promise you that, but one thing is sure, I.e., your enjoyment. So, Disney here has two central theme parks:
* Sleeping beauty Castle
* Walt Disney Studio
The place that has become a top Paris attraction in Disney is The Space Mountain.
That is the place that is one of the best areas to stay in Paris, and even adults are crazy about it. Maybe because they can feel like a kid again here. Who, anyway, doesn’t like to be as free as a kid? 😊
