Welcome to FranceWorldNews
You may intend to travel to France, among the world-famous cities is the French city and capital, Paris. You have to travel to Paris at a suitable time and I advise you in the month of September, as for the weather, here in Paris it is rainy most of the time.
Paris is the city of love and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and what distinguishes it is the Eiffel Tower, which overlooks the city as if it is guarding it.
The city of Paris is old and consists of several historical places and museums. Today we will learn about several tourist places that you can visit during your travels. Here is a complete guide to the must-see places of Paris, and the neighborhoods where they are located. Some are places where you will find the best tourist attractions, others are off the beaten track and some of the most unusual things to do in Paris…
1 – Jardin des Tuileries
The Jardin des Tuileries is Paris’ response to New York’s Central Park. It is often claimed that Paris is totally lacking in green spaces compared to a city like London. However, this is not the case! Just know where to look for green spaces!
In summer, the Jardin des Tuileries exhibition centre is located on the Louvre side of the gardens. There is also a large ferris wheel near Place de la Concorde for the rest of the year! During the winter, there is the annual Christmas market in the Jardin des Tuileries, which is actually the largest of its kind in Paris.
2 – The Orangerie
Home to Monet’s Water Lilies (water lilies), the Orangeries house some of Monet’s 250 oil paintings in their flowery garden in Giverny. While you can see images online, there’s nothing more moving than seeing a piece of art in person for the first time.
3 – Place Vendôme
Small picturesque square populated by designer shops and luxury hotels, Place Vendôme presides over a giant triumphal column. During the winter, the square is filled with giant trees decorated with hundreds and thousands of sparkling lights. At other times of the year, the beautiful square is ideal for photography and is a few blocks from the Palais Garnier opera house.
4 – Palais Royal
Housing the controversial Colonne de Buren and within walking distance of the Louvre, the Palais-Royal is now an administrative building closed to the public, but its magnificent garden nevertheless makes it an ideal place for a picnic.
5 – The Louvre
Take a selfie with the Mona Lisa in the world’s largest museum. At the Louvre you can also find favourites such as the Winged Victory of Samathrace and the Venus de Milo. Actually, one of my best tips to visit the Louvre is not to try to see everything at once! Instead, focus on specific areas of the museum or a specific time period.
6 – Notre Dame
Notre Dame is located in the city center, in the middle of the Seine, on the Ile de la Cité. From the 4th to the 14th century, the island was the center of Paris. Most of the exterior was originally painted (including all gargoyles). The cathedral is free to visit and is open every day of the year.
7 – Place des Vosges
Built in the early 17th century, the oldest planned square in the city, Place Vosges, is surrounded by red brick houses and an arcade of shops, bars and restaurants. Many famous French people have lived here. Including Cardinal Richelieu and Victor Hugo. The former home of Victor Hugo has since been transformed into a small house-museum whose visit is free and unavoidable during your time in the region.
8 – The Eiffel Tower
Well, if there’s one thing you want to do when you visit Paris and check off your list of things to do in Paris, ask him to get up early enough to see the sunrise. For the best place in town to watch the sunrise, I recommend you go to the Trocadéro and watch the sun rise over Paris).
9 – The Arc de Triomphe
If you are pressed for time, I advise against going to the Eiffel Tower. Instead, I can’t rent the view from the Arc de Triomphe instead! Not only is the view great, but the wait time is about a third of the wait time for the Eiffel Tower.
10 – Musée D’Orsay
The Musée d’Orsay is located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, in a former train station, Orsay train station. Home to the Starry Nights and an impressive collection of Rodin bronzes, it is also the location of a window clock that offers a view of Paris up to the Sacré-Coeur. It also happened that the Musée d’Orsay made a big appearance in the television series Gossip Girl. After all, that’s where Blair met Prince Louis!
I hope these places will please you, Paris is the city of love and beauty, the city of French culture, there are many other places that you can visit and that we will discover in other articles soon.
