Things to do in Paris

Going on a vacation in Paris? Here’s a few great ideas for things to do in the city of lights!

Some attractions in the City of Lights are fairly obvious, such as the Arc de Triomphe or the Eiffel Tower. The Opera Garnier, however, could be easily overlooked by the less musically-inclined, but it is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Not only that, but it is also surrounded by a great shopping area, with several shopping malls, different restaurants, bars and cafes.

The Ultimate Paris Things to do – Travel Guide

The Tuileries Gardens are a small sanctuary situated between the Louvre and the Champs-Elysees. While traveling between these two locations, you should not miss it! It is a quiet spot in this otherwise bustling city, and it has many interactive attractions, which makes it an excellent spot to take the children to.

Paris is also famous for its museums, and not by accident. The Louvre holds one of the biggest collections in the world, and has many wonders of art, including the Venus of Milo statue and Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. The Centre de Pompidou should also be noted, as it holds the largest Modern Art museum in Europe, the Bibiliotheque public library and IRCAM, a center for music and acoustics. The center is named after Georges Pompidou, who was a French President in the 1970s.

As in many other cities of Europe, there is a city pass called the “Paris Pass“, which allows free travel within the city on the “hop on hop off bus tour” and entrance to many attractions including the Louvre, the Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris Opera House and others, and with no lines! If you plan to move around the city a lot, be sure to get it – it’s one of the most recommended things to do in the city if you ask us. This pass will save you lots of time, money and energy, and it will really help you to get the most out of your time in the city, seeing more, but paying less!
