Flag of France Paris, France

The City of Love tops many travel lists and there’s good reason for that. One of the world’s most fashionable cities, Paris is a hub for culture, exquisite food and wine, architecture and art. Take a trip up the world-renowned Eiffel Tower, visit the Mona Lisa at the famed Louvre museum, spend a day wandering around the Musée d’Orsay, and revel in the wonders of Notre Dame Cathedral. No trip is complete without a visit to the Arc de Triomphe, shopping along the Champs Elysées and a performance at the Moulin Rouge.

Things to do in Paris

  • Louvre

    The Louvre or the Louvre Museum is the world's largest art museum and an historic monument in Paris, France. A central landmark of the city, it is located on the Right Bank of the Seine in the city's 1st arrondissement (district or ward). Approximately 38,000 objects from prehistory to the 21st century are exhibited over an area of 72,735 square metres (782,910 square feet). The Louvre in 2016 was the world's most visited art museum, receiving 7.3 million visitors.

  • Eiffel Tower

    The Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.

  • Montmartre

    Montmartre is a large hill in Paris's 18th arrondissement. It is 130 m high and gives its name to the surrounding district, part of the Right Bank in the northern section of the city. The historic district established by the City of Paris in 1995 is bordered by rue Caulaincourt and rue Custine on the north, rue de Clignancourt on the east, and boulevard de Clichy and boulevard de Rochechouart to the south, containing 60 ha. Montmartre is primarily known for its artistic history, the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré-Cœur on its summit, and as a nightclub district. The other, older, church on the hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded.

  • Notre-Dame de Paris

    Notre-Dame de Paris, also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, and it is among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass serve to contrast it with earlier Romanesque architecture.
