Paris, France is one of the most popular destinations to travel around the world. Known for its beautiful, historic architecture and delicious food, this enchanting city will not disappoint. Visit the best places in Paris during a 3 day itinerary. These are 15 things to do in Paris.
1. Eiffel Tower
Place du Trocadero has the best viewing spot of the Eiffel Tower. I recommend viewing this sight at sunset, as the Eiffel Tower lights up and sparkles! Truly a magical sight.
2. Arc de Triomphe
Another famous touristic attraction in Paris, France. Watch the crazy traffic driving around the Arc de Triomphe as you marvel at its architecture!
3. Louvre Museum
Follow the Tuileries Gardens to the Louvre Museum. Home to the Mona Lisa painting and many other amazing art work. Watch as the Louvre lights up after sunset creating a beautiful spectacle.
4. Saint Chapelle
Known for its beautiful stained glass windows and high ceilings, this church is a MUST- SEE. We found this gem, by accident near the Palais de Justice and cost around 11euros. Definitely worth it in my opinion.
Purchase Saint Chapelle Tickets
5. Gardens of Paris
Jardin des Plantes
Beautiful gardens filled with vibrant flowers and beautiful architecture. Both gardens are worth a visit as they are beautiful manicured year round.
6. Notre Dame
Unfortunately, this is as close to the Notre Dame as we could get due to construction from the fire. I recommend buying tickets in advance, once it opens back up for tours.
7. Champs Elysees
If you plan on doing some shopping in Paris, this is the perfect location. Champs Elysees is known for its luxury store, quaint boutiques and local restaurants. Start at the Arc de Triomphe and walk down to the Grand Palais.
8. Pont Alexandre III Bridge
An ornate arch bridge leading to Les Invalides.
9. Les Invalides
A historical landmark containing museums and monuments. Famous as the final resting place of Napoleon. We decided to skip this museum, as we ran out of time on our trip.
