Paris, the city of lovers, one of the most historic cities in the world, and one with nearly limitless entertainment. If you really want to see everything in the city you will need more than one trip. However, if you want to get the five best experiences out of the way follow along with our list.
1. Visit The Eiffel Tower
The number one must see attraction that everyone knows about, the Eiffel Tower is a must see location. While most people love to go during the day, the best view, and the shortest lines, are actually during the evening. This destination doesn’t take very much time to visit, but is one of the most romantic places in the world. Be sure to snap the classic picture in front of the tower, everyone you talk to will ask to see it when you get back.
2. Go To The Louvre
Home to some of the most amazing pieces of art in the world, this amazing museum is a must see for anyone and everyone. The museum itself is also a piece of art, created in a style that has never been fully replicated since. While you won’t be drawn into a mystery DaVinci code style, you will see all of the artworks mentioned in books, movies, history books, and more. Make sure to ask if they have guided or audio tours available in your language.
3. Try Real French Food
Everyone has heard of crepes, croissants, French wine, and other parts of French cuisine, but few have ever tasted them done correctly. Paris has some of the best food chefs in the world and even the corner bakeries are known for their culinary skills. Be sure to ask for the best wine or coffee pairings for each dish to really get the best flavors during your visit.
4. Moulin Rouge Show
One of the top things to do in Paris is to see a Moulin Rouge show. More than just a 90’s song, the Moulin Rouge is a real place and offers some of the most amazing shows in the world. With over 100 years of history, the amazing show includes both cabaret and amazing food. The show features amazing costumes, quick and fascinating dance sets, skilled artists, and more laughter than you would have ever thought possible. Packages offering champagne, cruises along the Seine River, and more are available.
5. Visit The Catacombs
Located underneath the city proper, the Catacombs of Paris are an underground network of tunnels that hold the remains, memories, and life history of more than six million people who lived in Paris during their lifetimes. While these tunnels extend under most of the city, only certain parts are open to the public. Guided tours are offered each day and multiple languages are supported, making it possible to enjoy yourself without struggling to remember your 10th grade French class. Take comfortable shoes and plan to be gone for about 3 hours if you go on one of these tours.
