In every region of France there is something important to know! But the City of Lights, as Paris is known, is surely the first choice for many. It is here that you will find some of the most famous monuments and museums in the world!
In the French capital it’s easy to discover or rediscover its history made of the memory of its constructions. Many are the evocative monuments of important moments in the history of France or Paris and that make the constant connection between the past and present, of which the majestic Arc de Triomphe and the Pantheon stand out.
Also the religious architecture is well present in the city, where the Masterpiece is without doubt the Cathedral de Notre-Dame. However, the Sainte Chapelle, the Madeleine church in its classic style, the Church of the Miraculous Medal or the church of the Sacré Coeur, in the picturesque Montmartre district, can never be left out of a visit to the city.
Administrative buildings, such as the National Assembly or the Hotel de Ville (the City Hall), should also be highlighted.
And in a city where culture reigns, we can find many different examples of cultural forms from the Louvre Museum, the D'Orsay Museum, the Opera Garnier, the Grand Palais or even the Moulin Rouge.
But talking about Paris without mentioning the Tour Eiffel would be inconceivable! This is undoubtedly the most emblematic monument in the city. More than a postcard that recognizes itself in any corner of the world, it is the center of the attention of all the tourist. The Tour Eiffel is the mark of the city.
Finally, you have to connect all these points of interest and there is no better way to do that than walking through the avenues, the Grands Boulevards, the Champs Elyseés, then crossing the Alexandre III Bridge, or the Place de la Concorde, the Trocadero or Place de la Bastille. However, you can’t miss the opportunity to do that connection by boat, going down the Seine river, having one of the most fantastic perspectives of the city.
And not far from the city of Paris, there are other charms to discover. But none surpasses the majesty of the Versailles Palace. It’s considered the largest palace in the world, with its 700 rooms, and with more than 2000 windows, 1250 fireplaces and 352 chimneys, it is part of a huge 700-hectare garden. No doubt the Palace deserves some of our time spent in Paris!
