The capital of France and a major European city! A global hub for fashion, art, cuisine, and culture! Paris is one of the most remarkable places to be. Some amazing attractions and beautiful destinations are more than just beautiful.
Because of the romantic atmosphere it exudes, Paris is known as “the City of Love.” The City of Love isn’t just a random nickname for Paris; it’s the perfect description that anyone who has visited the French capital would give to the city for all of the romantic vibes it has.
What would Paris be like without the iconic monument, the Eiffel Tower? Gustave Eiffel built it to commemorate the centenary of the French Revolution, and it was displayed at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889. With nearly 7 million visitors per year, it is one of the most visited monuments in the world, standing 324 meters tall.
The Eiffel Tower 58 is located on the first floor and spans two levels, rising 58 meters above the ground. The view from the second floor is the best at 115 meters because you have a diving view of the ground below. Ultimately on the third floor, at about 275 meters, you will be able to see Gustave Eiffel’s office. It is possible for the more daring to use the stairs and climb the steps (1,665 to the summit). The ascent of the Eiffel Tower is a must for taking in the breath-taking views of Paris.
The Louvre is the world’s best most visited art museum. This historic building, located in the heart of Paris, is a former royal palace with an area of 210,000 square meters, including 60,600 for exhibitions. The museum is housed in the Louvre, which was originally a fortress built under Philip II in the late 12th century. The fortress’s ruins can be seen in the museum’s basement.
The collection is organized into eight sections such as Egyptian artifacts, Antiquities from the East, Sculptures of Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Islamic Art from the middle Ages, Renaissance, and Modern Times, Paintings and graphic arts are examples of works of art.
Champs Elysées / Arc of Triumph
Napoleon, enchanted by ancient Roman architecture, commissioned Jean Chalgrin to design a triumphal arch dedicated to the glory of imperial armies. It is the world’s largest monument of its kind, having been built in the nineteenth century. Its pillars are adorned with impressive sculptures. The names of 558 generals and great victories are also engraved on the top of the arc.
The panoramic terrace above the door provides a lovely view of Paris. The Arc de Triomphe is 50 meters high, 45 meters wide, and 22 meters deep, and is located on Place de l’Etoile, which leads to the Champs Elysees, dubbed “the most beautiful avenue in the world.”
Palace of Versailles
The Château de Versailles is France’s most famous castle. It was built in the 17th century as a symbol of French military power and a demonstration of French supremacy in Europe. These complex and massive buildings,& terraces, and gardens are a must-see for any visitor. It will captivate anyone by its exceptional accommodations, extravagant decorations, furniture, and worth-seeing Renaissance art.
Visit Versailles, beginning with the State Apartments and the famous Hall of Mirrors, followed by the Queen’s chamber. Do visit and spend time in these beautiful “French” gardens.
The Moulin Rouge is a cabaret that is regarded as the spiritual home of the famous French Cancan. It was built in 1889 by Joseph Oller and Charles Zidler at the foot of Montmartre hill in the heart of Pigalle. Originally introduced as a courtship dance, the cancan paved the way for the birth of the cabaret, which is now found in many countries around the world. Today, the Moulin Rouge is a tourist attraction that entertains visitors from all over the world.
Its style and name have been copied and borrowed from other nightclubs around the world, including Las Vegas. Furthermore, many films, such as Baz Luhrmann’s 2001 film starring Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor, have aided the cabaret’s reputation.
The Latin Quarter: Luxembourg park
The Latin Quarter of Paris is located around the Sorbonne on the left bank of the Seine. The Latin Quarter, known for its student life, lively atmosphere, and bistros, is home to many higher education institutions, including the EcoleNormaleSuperieure, the Ecole des Mines de Paris, and the Ecole Polytechnique. The neighborhood is named after the Latin language, which was once widely spoken in and around the University because Latin was the international language of learning in the Middle Ages.
The Luxembourg Park is a public garden that was established in 1612 at the request of Marie de Medicis to complement the Luxembourg Palace. The Parisians affectionately refer to it as the “Luco.” The garden encircles the Palais du Luxembourg, which houses the Senate. It has been redesigned by André Le Nôtre and is very pleasant to walk around; there is also an orchard, several apple varieties, an apiary, and a greenhouse with an orchid collection. There are 106 statues, including a bronze replica of the Statue of Liberty, as well as three beautiful fountains.
