Here are the some critical attractions that you must visit during your travel to Paris.
Visit the Eiffel Tower
One of the most striking Paris attractions is the Eiffel tower, designed by Gustavo Eiffel, particularly for the 1889 world fair, and it stands at 300m, or 984 feet tall. At that time, it was the world’s tallest building. In spite of some people being unhappy with the project when it was built, since they saw it as an blot on the landscape and wanted it pulled down. However, today falls it's among the world’s frequently visited monuments. You can reach the first and second floors by stairway or the elevator will take you to the top for a magnificent view of the city.
Visit Paris Musee du Louvre
This is another very frequently visited venue, and even the major entrance to the Louvre is spectacular piece of art. However, you need to get your eyes off the Pyramid and inside where you'll find rich artistic history, from the code of Hammurabi, Egyptian mummies, Leonardo’s Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo. The museum has transformed over the centuries, and has highlighted vast beauty of the human psychology all under one roof. Ideally, this is a potent symbol of finesse and French sensitivity to art.
Travel to Paris Orsay Museum
This is another spectacular museum receiving more than 2.5 million visitors each year and has a large collection of impressionist’s artwork. The building itself dates back to 1900, and has transformed its uses to become a house rich in art. This should be among the top 10 things to do in Paris, where you can see a vast collection of art and paintings, and enjoy French cuisine on the same location.
Notre Dame Cathedral for walking tours Paris
You have to climb some 387 steps to reach the top of this piece of art for you to get a spectacular view of the city. The construction of the cathedral began back in 1163, and completed in 1212, while the rebuilding of the duo arms of transept gates in 1270 saw its completion. The west side of the cathedral has three doorways rich in décor that have two 69-meter towers.
If you are visiting Paris for the first time, the scenery alone can be breathtaking, and almost every space in the city seems to ooze beauty and history, ensuring you find plenty to do.
