Top 4 Attractions Everyone Must Visit While in Paris

Paris is often known as the city of romance as well as where people go for delicious wine and culinary experiences.  Visitors can walk the streets, often hand in hand, while seeing the sights and stopping in any of the numerous fascinating restaurants or bakeries for a bite to eat.

While in Paris, everyone must visit these top 4 attractions:

Musee du Louvre

There are multiple museums in Paris, but this one is the best with approximately thirty-five thousand works of art on display.  With so much to see in the six hundred and fifty thousand square feet of space, guests are encouraged to decide which exhibits they want to see ahead of time.  A few of the more popular works of art include Eugene Delacroix’s Liberty of Leading the People, Theodore Gericault’s The Raft of Medusa, and Leonardo da Vinci’s infamous Mona Lisa.

Louvre museum is one of the world’s largest museums with more than 8 million visitors each year.

Arc de Triomphe

Anyone that is near the Champs-Élysées will find that they cannot miss the Arc de Triomphe that is located at the western end.  Napoleon had this arch built to honor those who fought during the Napoleonic Wars, and the names of the battles of the wars and the generals who fought in them are inscribed underneath.  Most people pay their respects at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier before climbing to the top for the spectacular panoramic views of the city.

Notre Dame Cathedral

The architectural style and ornamental designs are what draws people to the Notre Dame Cathedral, and this magnificent building took more than one hundred and fifty years to become the masterpiece that it now is.  On the outside, visitors are greeted with sculptures and gargoyles, as well as twenty-one figures in the Gallery of Kings.  The inside is even more intense and beautiful with stained glass windows, including the one with Old Testament scenes in the north transept.*as of the date of publishing, Notre Dame Cathedral is closed due to a fire.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower is practically the centerpiece of Paris, and it is always the number one destination on everyone’s list when they arrive in the city.  Most people will visit this attraction whenever they get a chance, however, the best time to go is at night when it lights up for a few minutes, every hour on the hour.  People can enjoy a delectable meal at the restaurant on the second floor before continuing up to the top for amazing views of the city and the surrounding area.
