Eiffel tower is a significant symbol of Paris which looks even more beautiful in the evening. The lift that takes you on the top floor of Eiffel takes your breath away as it keeps going up. The view of the city from the top is amazing as you can spot every destination from there.

Another no brainer, free to go to the centre if you can find the secret underground entrances which took us a bit to find even though they are rather obvious. Also fancy macaron place down the road.

On the way back to Airport I also visited very famous Notre Dam, a beautiful and marvel of French Gothic architecture. Each carving on this cathedral is stunning, sculptures and beautiful stained glass, it is among the largest and well known church building in the world.

The Notre Dame! I have been imagining what it would be like to see the Notre Dame since I was 12 years old when I got assigned the dance of Esmeralda to dance at a ballet competition. My ballet teacher told me all about the life of Esmeralda. How she was a beautiful Gypsy begging for money by dancing with her tambourine outside of the Notre Dame. Seeing the building in person was so cool.

This is one of the world’s largest museums and is known to houses the famous painting Monalisa. We took a train to Nation from Croix de Chaveaux and from there to Palais Royal Musée du Louvre. When you get down, you directly enter a mall, take a few steps up and the grand Louvre Palace welcomes you. The glass pyramid made so famous by Da Vinci Code is right in front. We walked around , sat by the fountain , clicked pics. The entry fee is 15E. Sadly there are no food joints around, only one expensive restaurant that we dared not to enter.

Someone once told me that if I spend one second at each exhibit in Musée du Louvre, or the Lourve Museum, it would take me nine months to finish touring the entire museum. Unfortunately, I didn’t have nine months to spare to look at the 35,000 masterpieces in the museum. I did, however, manage to catch the smile of the Mona Lisa in 1999. The first (and only) time I saw her was back in 1999. She was smaller than I expected her to be. I was able to get close to her then; I hear that it’s tough to get near her these days.

10. Notre Dame is Amazing, too. Notre Dame de Paris is amazing. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. You should go to the top of the towers, it’s pretty crazy because the steps are teeeny-tiny and you just wind up and up; and when you get to the very top there’s an amazing view.

Pompidou Centre - Paris

It’s the first Art Museum for Modern and Contemporary art in Europe and the second in the world after the Moma ! Even French people are not aware about it! The found is amazing : 60,000 art works from 1900 (fauvism) to today but they can only display 1000/1200 in the museums spaces that’s why they change the hanging each 18 months, they renew it totally, so even Parisian can discover jewels from our national collection from Matisse and Picasso to Bill Viola, Anselm Kieffer, Ed Rucha and many other...The temporary exhibitions are great too: right now we have Gerhard Richter retrospective, one of the greatest painter alive today.

If you have soaked up enough of the Masters at the Louvre and d'Orsay, head over to the Pompidou Centre showcasing modern and contemporary art. The odd looking facade of the Pompidou somewhat prepares you for some of the odd looking art inside. I was lucky to be in time for the Roy Lichtenstein pop art exhibit which turned out to be fun. While you might find some exhibits gorgeous, others interesting and some downright weird, you will most definitely not be bored.

While visiting graveyards is not high on most travel agendas, the Père Lachaise cemetery makes for a perfect afternoon with friends while you walk through its sprawling and beautiful expanse trying to locate the famous graves Oscar Wilde, Jim Morrison and Edith Piaf among many others.

Catacombs of Paris - Paris

Part of the city’s efforts to store human remains from its overcrowded cemeteries, the tunnels run for more than 150 miles below ground, but only 1 mile is open to the public. No thanks!

Panthéon - Paris

They changed it from being a church into a mausoleum for war heroes. “Twice since then it has reverted to being a church, only to become again a temple to the great intellectuals of France.”I also read that Rodin’s Thinker was housed here for a short period of time.I found it really weird that there was a huge pendulum present in the mausoleum. I didn’t know what it was and nobody there could tell me, so when I came home I had to google it. Turns out, a physicist (named Léon Foucault) wanted to demonstrate the rotation of the Earth with the help of an experiment with a pendulum (later named after him), which is actually 67 meters tall!There are a number of renown people buried in the mausoleum. Actually, the writing on the facade of the building actually means “To the great men, the grateful homeland”. We could saw Victor Hugo’s, Émile Zola‘s, Louis Braille‘s, Jean Monnet‘s, Marie Curie‘s and Alexandre Dumas‘s graves (among many other notable personas).

Paris has a tradition of lovers putting a padlock on bridges ,symbolising everlasting love. Though there have been calls by authorities to stop this as the bridges cannot support all excess weight of the padlocks.

Les Invalides - Paris

What I really liked while we were walking through the tomb were the painted glass windows. I really loved how detailed, yet seemingly simple they were. Also, there were not only just tombs and arms, but little scale-models and soldier-figures as well.And after wandering around for a while, we finally got to the créme-de-la-créme of the expo, Napoleon’s final resting place. Wikipedia says: “Napoleon was initially interred on Saint Helena, butKing Louis-Philippe arranged for his remains to be brought to France in 1840, an event known as le retour des cendres. Napoléon’s remains were first buried in the Chapelle Saint-Jérôme in the Invalides until his final resting place, a tomb made of red quartzite and resting on a green granite base, was finished in 1861.''

Hôtel de Ville - Paris

We grabbed a couple of sandwiches from Carrefour (where we were first spoken to with French and we couldn’t understand a thing though we’ve practiced basic French haha) and pique-niqued with Place Stanislas as our view. Buildings of neoclassical style border the square while elaborate sculptures and wrought iron gates adorn the corners. The statue of Stanislas that stands in the middle of the square was offered a nice background by the stunning HOTEL de Ville.

17. Around Marais… Other cool area might be to go to the oldest part of town, called the Marais, and see the Hotel de Ville (city hall), Place Des Voges, and the Picasso museum. Also Centre Pompidu. There are lots of cute restaurants/bars near Centre Pompidu, but it can also be a bit dogy in areas. The Opera and Madeline are cool too, but then again, everything is pretty amazing in Paris.

Orsay Museum - Paris

I remember when I stepped in I was actually awestruck by the beauty of the old railway station! I found the surroundings somewhat close to magical, and even as we were walking past the world-famous paintings and sculptures, I couldn’t help myself in taking a glance at the beautiful ceiling and the amazing railway clock.The sculptures magically came alive once you were walking among them and the beautiful scenery offered by the “vintage” railroad station. One of my favorites is Salvador Dali, but unfortunately his paintings were not among the collection of the Orsay. I did, however, get to see a few awesome artworks from such masters as Vincent van Gogh, Monet, Manet, Cezanne, etc. If you’d like to visit the museum, the entrance fee costs 9 euros. For info about opening hours and additional information, visit the museum’s site.

Angelina - Rivoli - Paris

For the best hot chocolate in the world, head to Angelina's! Within walking distance of the Louvre, this Belle Époque style restaurant serves the most decadent and delicious hot chocolate called L'Africain, deriving its name from the African cocoa beans its made from. Like most famous French institutions, Angelina's has a touch of celebrity with past patrons including Proust and Coco Chanel to boast of. Of course the rich history and chocolate comes at a price but it is well worth it for the indelible taste.

Gare du Nord - Paris

If you happen to enter Paris by rail from another International destination( for me it was Amsterdam), then you are most likely to reach Gare Du Nord station. At the very first sight it could seem very intimidating, owing to the fact that it is one of the six large terminus stations and offers connections with several urban transportation lines, including Paris Metro, RER and buses. Well don’t worry you are not alone, there are hoards of tourists haggling over the map to figure their way out. The first thing do is to go to the tourist information counter and let them know your destination and they would very clearly guide you through the maze of the station and help you board the correct transport. And it is advisable to always keep the map handy.

Le Bateau-Lavoir - Paris

Le Bateau-Lavoir ("The Boat Wash-house") is the nickname for a building in the Montmartre district that is famous in art history as the residence and meeting place for a group of outstanding early 20th-century artists, men of letters, theater people, and art dealers. The name Le Bateau-Lavoir was coined by French painter Max Jacob. The building was dark and dirty, almost seeming to be scrap pile rather than a dwelling. On stormy days, they swayed and creaked, reminding people of washing-boats on the nearby Seine River, hence the name.

Sacré-Cœur - Paris

Because of the magnificent views that it provides, the Sacré Coeur Basilica draws more yearly visitors than even the iconic Eiffel Tower. If you’ve got time, it’s definitely worth exploring the interior of the church as well. The church features one of the largest mosaics in the world, and the domes are just as impressive seen from the inside. It’s also possible to climb to the top of the central dome, from which you’ll have an even better view of Paris and also of the Eiffel Tower.

Montmartre Cemetery - Paris

A popular tourist destination, Montmartre Cemetery is the final resting place of many famous artists who lived and worked in the Montmartre area. Regardless of the time of year that you visit, Montmartre Cemetery is a beautiful place to see. It's also important to keep in mind that it is an active cemetery, so it is a busy place. There are numerous paths and roadways to wander on that will take you through the cemetery and your guided map will list the certain points of interest along the way. Montmartre Cemetery almost looks sunken, as it is below street level. There are numerous hills and steps inside the cemetery, which can make navigating a bit difficult, yet adventurous. It is open 7 days a week and the hours are regulated by the city of Paris.

Au Lapin Agile - Paris

At the turn of the twentieth century, the Lapin Agile was a favorite spot for struggling artists and writers, including Picasso, Modigliani, Apollinaire, and Utrillo. It also was popular with questionable Montmartre characters including pimps, eccentrics, simple down-and-outers, a contingent of local anarchists, as well as with students from the Latin Quarter, all mixed with a sprinkling of well-heeled bourgeoisie out on a lark. Pablo Picasso's 1905 oil painting, "At the Lapin Agile" helped to make this cabaret world famous.
