Things to Do in Paris

There is no shortage of fantastic sightseeing options off the beaten path, but there are certain Paris attractions that you simply can’t miss. Drink in the panoramic views from atop the Eiffel Tower, or head to the outskirts of town to visit Disneyland Paris. Of course, the collections at the world-famous Louvre art museum are très magnifique and may entice you for several return visits, but the Musée d'Orsay and Musée National d'Art Moderne in the Pompidou Centre are also outstanding options for art lovers. If you prefer outdoor excursions, the grounds of Luxembourg Garden are filled with the sounds of laughing children, the smells of fresh baguettes and flowers, and the sights of Parisians relaxing under trees and on park benches. Pull up a seat, sip on your cafe au lait, and enjoy the scenery.

Stroll along the Seine to take in Paris’ many monuments, including the Sainte-Chapelle, the Basilica of Sacré-Cœur, and the Gothic spires of Notre Dame Cathedral. Everywhere you look is another astonishing sight, so make sure your camera is charged and ready. Come nightfall, the legendary Moulin Rouge’s cabaret shows provide a decadent delight to those who enjoy entertainment on the risqué side, and there are plenty of late-night cafes and jazz clubs to satiate your other sensory desires. As the home of haute cuisine, Paris is known for its plethora of Michelin-starred chefs and restaurants, so no matter what your budget is, you’re sure to sink your teeth into some of the most sumptuous dishes in the world.
