Things to do in Paris
If this is the first time that you are in Paris, you might get a bit confused where to begin with. Because this magnificent city has a lot to offer. But don’t worry! We are going to give you some options to start with. However, visiting Paris once would definitely not be enough and you have to spend much more time to do all the exciting things in this city.
Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower: Today, no one can imagine a first visit to Paris without climbing the Eiffel Tower. Especially if you decide to go there at night and see the mesmerizing city of lights from above and enjoy the Parisian moonlight.
Visit Louvre Museum: The other interesting thing you can do is to take a stroll along the banks of the Seine toward the world-renowned Louvre Museum. This glorious museum is one of the most extensive and renowned art collections in the world which can offer you some great pieces of art like the world’s most famous painting Mona Lisa in its largest room, the Salle des États. The museum also has a vast collection of sculptures (including Venus de Milo) and other objects from ancient civilizations that you would not like to skip.
Enjoy a show at Moulin Rouge: Moulin Rouge is #1 nightclub in France which offers you a legendary show, which is of course not really cheap, but definitely worth it. You can enjoy the performance of some of the best artists in the world while you drink your original French Champagne
See the Notre Dame Cathedral up close: Notre Dame Cathedral is another Parisian icon which was built in the 12th century. Notre Dame is currently scheduled to reopen in 2024; however, the splendid building is still worth visiting and watching from outside. The cathedral was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and is considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. Plus, if you are a book lover, don’t forget to visit Shakespeare and Co. which is the most amazing bookshop in the world, located a few meters from the cathedral.
Go on a stroll on Champs-Élysées: You can’t actually say you have visited Paris without walking on one of the most popular commercial streets in the world. Champs-Élysées connects the stunning Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde with its monumental fountains. This street is full of theaters, cafes, shops, and lively events which has a wonderful nightlife.
Take a river boat on the Seine: The seine is the artery that runs through the heart of the city of lights. Thus, riding a traditional boat on this river can make an enjoyable memory for you. When you hit the water, you can easily see different iconic buildings and monuments and enjoy the lively vibes and stunning views of the city around the banks of the river.
Eat at delightful French restaurants: French cuisine doesn’t need to be introduced, and it is popular across the world. Of course, it is not easy to choose a restaurant in a city full of the best ones. However, the city is famous for its croissants, crêpes, croques, and macarons which can be found at any corner of the city.
There are a lot of astounding places and pleasing activities in Paris and it is very difficult to choose some of them. Therefore, these are just a very small part of the things available in this lovely city and you certainly need much more time to get more from the rich culture and history of the French Capital.
