10 Things you should do in Paris, If you are traveling to Paris you should definitely visit these places because they are the most important and famous Places in Paris France.







Eiffel Tower

Meet your guide and then hear some amazing stories of Paris and the creator of the iconic tower to whet your appetite for your climb ahead. See a statue of Gustave Eiffel, the visionary man who designed the controversial monument for the 1889 World Fair.

Take a moment to stand at the center of the iron structure and look up. Your guide will secure tickets for the group then skip the long elevator lines (there may still be a queue for the stairs) and enter the tower to climb up 704 steps over 30 flights. Catch your breath at the provided rest stops and see a side of the Eiffel Tower you would miss if you ascended by elevator. Hear more about the young engineer, entrepreneur and great builder, Gustave Eiffel, including details of his life after the building opened.

Upon arrival at the first level, take a well-earned break. Stand on the new glass floor, and experience the world of the tower via a multimedia interactive exhibit and short film, if time permits. Grab your "Follow Gus" booklet to enjoy some fun for the whole family, or enjoy a snack or rest before you continue on your way.

En route to the second level, hear little-known fun facts about the tower's original color, twinkling lights and individuals who made history with their daredevil stunts. Upon arrival at the second level, experience a unique sense of accomplishment, and take in the bird's eye views of all the sights surrounding you. Get a bird's eye tour of Paris with your feet far from the ground as your guide tells you about monuments and districts such as Montparnasse, Les Invalides, the Sacre-Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Élysées.

If you purchase the Summit Access option, you will purchase a ticket for the lift to the tower's summit and continue your adventure on your own. Once there, see Gustave Eiffel’s office, restored to its original condition along with panoramic maps. Go to the Champagne Bar and treat yourself to some bubbles in the sky. When you are ready, simply take the elevator back down to street level and continue with your day!

Please note that there can be a wait to clear the security line, as this is unavoidable. There can be a wait for the line to climb the stairs during the busy season. However, this wait will be far shorter than the wait for the elevators. Please note that the earliest morning option has the least wait. Please do expect wait for later times. Wait time will vary. For least amount of wait, please select the 8:45 AM or 9:15 AM option.



Louvre Museum

Explore one of the world’s best art museums at your own pace with your ticket to the Louvre. Skip the line and walk straight inside, after a security check.

Once inside the historic palace located on the Right Bank of the Seine, see unmissable and iconic sights such as the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo. Discover masterpieces of the Renaissance and ancient Egyptian relics, along with paintings from the 13th to 20th centuries, prints from the Royal Collection, and much more.

The museum first opened on August 10 1793 with an exhibition of just 537 paintings. Despite closing in 1796, due to structural problems, it reopened in 1801 as the Musée Napoléon with a larger collection. Many works were seized and returned to their original owners after the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo.

The collection was increased during the reign of Louis XVIII and Charles X, and during the Second French Empire the museum gained 20,000 pieces. Holdings have grown steadily since the Third Republic, and as of 2008, the collection is divided among 8 curatorial departments: Egyptian Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities; Islamic Art; Sculpture; Decorative Arts; Paintings; and Prints and Drawings.



Notre-Dame de Paris

Arrive at Notre Dame Cathedral early in the morning, and your host will welcome you with an introduction to the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Find out whether the legends of the “Hunchback of Notre Dame” are true. See the gruesome gargoyles on the outside, and discover if they really do come alive.

Stand on some of the very first streets of Paris as you gaze up at the imposing cathedral. Then, go inside and discover its beautiful rose windows that reflect on the floor when the sun shines.



Arc de Triomphe

The Arc de Triomphe is a Neoclassical take on the ancient Roman triumphal arch style. Fifty meters tall, the view from the platform atop the arch is well worth the hike. See the dozen Parisian avenues radiating out from the arch into the City of Light. Paris is one of the most fascinating places in the world and you will find yourself right at its center.

Inspired by the great arches of ancient Rome, Napoleon commissioned the Arc de Triomphe shortly after his victory at Austerlitz. Unfortunately, he never lived to see its completion.

At the base of the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died in World War I. Behold the eternal flame that is rekindled at 6.30pm each evening. In addition, there is a must-see exhibition which explains the symbolic importance of this monument.

The view from the top of the arch is worth climbing the 284 stairs. From your privileged position, survey all of Paris. Unlike the obligatory Eiffel Tower trip, getting into the Arc de Triomphe is an effort not all tourists undertake. Plus, with skip-the-line tickets, you'll hardly have to break stride on your way in.



Champs-Élysées

The Avenue des Champs-Élysées is an avenue in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, France, 1.9 kilometres long and 70 metres wide, running between the Place de la Concorde and the Place Charles de Gaulle, where the Arc de Triomphe is located.



Palace of Versailles

Visit the Palace and Gardens of Versailles with a pre-booked 1-day or 2-day full access pass. Explore the ornate State Apartments and breathtaking Hall of Mirrors inside the official residence of the French monarchy from 1682 to 1789. Learn more about Louis XIV and other French royals with a complimentary audio guide.

Located just 30 minutes from central Paris by train, Versailles was a sleepy village until Louis XIII began to build a hunting lodge there in 1623. By the end of the century, continued expansion saw the town and castle become the symbolic center of the absolute monarchy of the Ancien Régime.

Louis XIV moved the royal family to the palace in 1682, and 2 enormous new wings were added during a 2nd phase of building (1678–1715). Your 1 or 2-day full access pass allows you to visit the State Apartments built by Le Vau. Get a sense of life in the French court as you take a walk through the glittering Hall of Mirrors. Stroll through the legendary gardens at your own pace, and admire fountains, sculptures, and beautifully manicured lawns.

You will also enjoy access to the Grand and Petit Trianon in their own grounds. See where the “Sun King” would entertain in private, and where he would go to escape the rigors of court life. Then, go to Marie Antoinette’s Estate, and discover where she would seek refuge in private.

Sacré-Cœur Paris

Explore the outside of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, built between 1874 and 1914 and enjoy the artistic and picturesque village of Paris.

Your guided tour begins with a visit outside the Sacred Heart. Learn about both the exterior and interior of the Basilica from your expert guide. See the largest mosaic in the world, Christ in Majesty, depicting the Sacred Heart of Jesus, worshiped by the Virgin Mary, Jeanne d'Arc, and St. Michael the Archangel.

After the Basilica your guide will take you to the village of Montmartre. This neighborhood of Montmartre has always stood apart from the rest of Paris, not just as the large hill in the city’s northern 18th Arrondissement, but as the home to artists, revolutionaries and outsiders who have played an important part in the unique history of Paris.

These streets hold wild stories and a unique perspective around every corner and the Place du Tertre is one of the most famous squares of Paris. There is no neighborhood more magical than Montmartre.



Montmartre

Begin your 2-hour tour of Montmartre at the infamous Moulin Rouge. From here, you will move up the hill to see artist studios, statues of pop stars, and the church that is located at the highest point of Paris, the fabulous white wedding cake of the Sacré Coeur.

Discover what made Vincent Van Gogh, Toulouse Lautrec, Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali all want to call this eclectic district home. The tour covers all the major sites that make it famous, including the bohemian Artists' Square, Montmartre Vineyard – the last authentic vineyard in Paris – Van Gogh’s House, Café des Deux Moulins (recognizable from the movie Amélie), and the last windmill left standing in Paris.

Wander through Paris’s Red Light District, see Picasso's former studio, and listen to fantastic anecdotes, such as the legend of Paris' first bishop, the headless Saint Denis.

Discover Renoir's world-famous paintings, Bal au Moulin de la Galette, and pass by La Place Dalida, dedicated to one of Paris' most famous gay icons and the cabaret bar where Picasso often exchanged paintings for food.



Tuileries Garden

The Tuileries Garden is a public garden located between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France.

Created by Catherine de' Medici as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was eventually opened to the public in 1667 and became a public park after the French Revolution.



Jardin du Luxembourg

The Jardin du Luxembourg, also known in English as the Luxembourg Gardens, is located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, France.

It was created beginning in 1612 by Marie de' Medici, the widow of King Henry IV of France, for a new residence she constructed, the Luxembourg Palace.
