Monuments and Places To See In Paris

To make your life more adventurous, you must travel to France.

There are so many tourist attractions in Paris that there simply isn’t time to visit everything during one vacation.

This article is written to give you “must see” list of the monuments, museums, parks and places in Paris.

The Eiffel Tower

You can’t go to Paris without seeing the tower. However, here’s the way to get the best out of it: take the Metro to Trocadero and walk to the Palais de Chaillot.

This palace, intended by Napoleon to be “the biggest and most extraordinary” palace”, is well worth a visit and affords spectacular views across the river to the Eiffel Tower

From Chaillot, walk across the bridge (Pont D’Iena) to the tower itself and the Parc du Champ De Mars which is behind it.

Hotel Des Invalides

One of the biggest attractions for tourists in the city is the golden dome and church of Saint-Louis des Invalides. Within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower, this church and military museum is well worth a visit. And, even if the subject matter doesn’t interest you, the building is so beautiful, it’s worth seeing close up.

The Musee Du Louvre

The Palais du Louvre and pyramid is the most popular museum with tourists. Famous as the home of the Mona Lisa and Venus De Milo, it has one of the largest collections of art in the world.

After a visit to the Louvre, it’s worth taking a walk through the Jardin Des Tuileries. This royal garden with its statues and ponds is a great place to relax (and should be included in any tour of Paris most beautiful parks) before moving onto the Champs Elysees or across the river to see some great impressionist art in the Musee dOrsay

Ile De La Cite

It’s hard to imagine it, but Paris used to be just this little island.

Starting at the famous Pont Neuf bridge (lit. “new bridge”, but it’s the oldest bridge on the Seine) and ending at the Square Jean XXIII behind Notre Dame cathedral, there are few places in the world with so much history per square meter.

Pigalle & Montmartre

When the sun goes down, one of the most famous attractions for visitors to Paris is the famous Moulin Rouge can-can. Although it’s lost the spirit that first made it famous, the “Red Windmill” still puts on a good show.

Other Attractions

I can’t talk about Paris tourist attractions without talking about one of my favorites: the Catacombs. This network of subterranean rooms are filled with millions of human bones and are a fascination, if slightly ghoulish, tourist draw.
