Paris is the city of love but also city of shopping and culture. Yes is a romantic city with nice parks where you can seat on a bench, under a beautiful tree, rest, eat a Macaron (Ladurée is the best for Macarons), read a book or drink a coffee (There is Starbucks in Paris if someone loves Starbucks like I do). Paris has many things to do and to visit: Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, Opera, Notre Dame, Arc the Triomphe, Montmartre, The Royal Palace, Moulin Rouge, The Champs-Élysées and more more and more.
Things To Do in Paris
Step out with your host to take in some of the best panoramic views in Paris from the viewing platform, 375 feet (114 meters) above the ground. Get a basic orientation to the sights and landmarks visible from your vantage point from your host, then explore the area at your leisure. Snap photos of the Louvre, Les Invalides, Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame Cathedral, and the Champ de Mars, among other standout Parisian highlights. After you’ve had your fill of the second level, proceed to the summit, where you can toast your trip with Champagne from the bar and view Gustave Eiffel’s private apartments.

Primarily associated with the steady gaze of Leonardo Da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa, Paris’ Louvre museum is home to a 35,000-strong collection of paintings and sculptures considered one of the greatest in the world. The contemporary glass Louvre Pyramid heralds the museum’s entrance, which millions of tourists flock to every year to feast their eyes on masterpieces that span from antiquity to the 20th century. Highlights of the antiquity section include the Seated Scribe, the Jewels of Rameses II, and the armless Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo.
The large crowds attracted by the Louvre are evidence of the museum’s global fame—book a skip-the-line ticket to avoid long lines and save precious sightseeing time. And whether you’re a lifelong art fan or a creative novice, exploring the museum with a tour guide is an excellent way to ensure you see all of its highlights and hidden gems. Take a tailored private tour if your interests lie in a particular area, or opt for the skip-the-line and audio guide package if you prefer browsing independently. If you’re short on time, choose a sightseeing tour that combines a visit to the Louvre with stops at the Eiffel Tower, Montmartre, and Notre Dame Cathedral, or take in city sights from the water on a Seine River cruise.
Located next to the Seine River in central Paris, the Louvre is easy to find. Catch Metro line 1 or 7 to the Palais Royal/Musee du Louvre station.

A large hill in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, the historic district of Montmartre is crowned by Sacré-Coeur Basilica, attracting visitors who come to walk the cobblestone streets and imagine what life was like during the Belle Epoque, when artists such as Dalí, Renoir, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Picasso lived and worked here from the late 19th to early 20th century. Today, artists still gather at Place du Tertre to sketch tourist portraits—a favorite souvenir.
- Montmartre is a highly visited part of Paris, so be prepared for crowds in the busy summer season.
- The neighborhood is a must-see for art history buffs and those looking for postcard views.
- Wear comfortable walking shoes for the many stairs and cobblestones.
- If visiting in the warmer summer months and plan to walk uphill, bring water to stay hydrated.
Second only to the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral (Cathedrale de Notre Dame de Paris) is one of Paris’ most iconic attractions, a marvel of medieval architecture that was immortalized in Victor Hugo’s classic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Today, the Gothic grandeur and majestic stained-glass windows of the UNESCO World Heritage site continue to reign supreme from Ile de la Cite, an island in the middle of the Seine River. Notre Dame’s immense interior exemplifies French Gothic architecture—soaring fluted columns, ribbed vaults, and sculptures demand attention from every angle, while the light that pours through prismatic windows gives the basilica an ethereal ambiance. If you choose to climb the 387 steps of the north tower, braving gargoyles along the way, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of Paris.
How to Get to the Notre Dame Cathedral
Notre Dame’s central location makes it incredibly easy to reach by public transport: take the RER B or RER C line to St-Michel Notre Dame, or disembark at Cite on Line 4 of the Metro. If you’re enjoying the luxury of time, follow the route of the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower for a one-hour walk brimming with highlights and hidden gems.
Expect bright lights, extravagant costumes, and raucous music at the world-famous Moulin Rouge. Opened in the Belle Epoque of 1889 to celebrate Paris’ thriving creative scene and the end of the civil war, the windmill-cum-cabaret hall has never stopped basking in fun and frivolity. As a staple of Parisian nightlife, an unforgettable evening at the Moulin Rouge is a must on any traveler’s France itinerary. During the show, your vision is flooded with large troupes of Doriss Girls, colorfully clad in sequins and glitzy headpieces, performing flawlessly choreographed French cancan beneath vibrant lights. Intense and innovative, the Feerie show transports viewers to a land of dream-like beauty. As the No. 1 show in Paris and Europe (especially since the release of Baz Luhrmann’s cinematic masterpiece) the legendary Moulin Rouge cabaret enjoys immense popularity. That said, tickets sell out fast — book in advance to avoid missing Paris’ most sought-after show.
How to Get to the Moulin Rouge
From central Paris, the Moulin Rouge is easily accessible by public transport: disembark at Place de Clichy on Metro line 13, or at Blanche on Metro line 2, after a 30- to 40-minute journey. By taxi, Moulin Rouge is a 15-minute drive from central Paris depending on traffic.
