The Place des Vosges, originally Place Royale, is the oldest planned square in Paris and one of the finest in the city. It is located in the Marais district, and it straddles the dividing-line between the 3rd and 4th arrondissements of Paris.
It’s small but has a good atmosphere. It's good to seat there for a while and relax. It's in Marais, which is a nice neighborhood to walk around and eat.
Maison de Victor Hugo
France's most famous scribe lived in this house on the northeast corner of Place des Vosges between 1832 and 1848. It's now a museum dedicated to the multitalented author. In Hugo's apartment on the second floor, you can see the tall desk, next to the short bed, where he began writing his masterwork Les Misérables (as always, standing up). There are manuscripts and early editions of the novel on display, as well as others such as Notre-Dame de Paris, known to English readers as The Hunchback of Notre-Dame. You can see illustrations of Hugo's writings, including Bayard's rendering of the impish Cosette holding her giant broom (which has graced countless Les Miz T-shirts). The collection includes many of Hugo's own, sometimes macabre, ink drawings (he was a fine artist) and furniture from several of his homes. Particularly impressive is the room of carved and painted Chinese-style wooden panels that Hugo designed for the house of his mistress, Juliet Drouet, on the island of Guernsey, when he was exiled there for agitating against Napoléon III. Try to spot the intertwined Vs and Js (hint: look for the angel's trumpet in the left corner). The first floor is dedicated to temporary exhibitions that often have modern ties to Hugo's work.
Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris
Notre-Dame de Paris, also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France.
It’s the largest and most traditional church in Paris. One of the most important gothic churches in the world.
A place of diversity. With narrow streets and a lot of small restaurants, it offers a great variety of flavors.
Le Jardin du Luxembourg
"Le Jardin du Luxembourg", or the Luxembourg Garden, located in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, was created beginning in 1612 by Marie de' Medici, the widow of King Henry IV of France, for a new residence she constructed, the Luxembourg Palace.
Second largest church in Paris and good example of French baroque and neoclassical architecture.
La Closerie Des Lilas
If you search a good French cuisine experience, this is a good place. It’s a classical French restaurant with good service and meal, bilingual waiters and a nice piano bar.
Musée du Louvre
One of the largest and most important museums of the world. It has a great collection of many types of art. Louvre is extremely big. Even if you like art, you feel tired because of its size and variety of the collection. The paintings are the most crowded area and you should go there at the end, otherwise you are going to fell tired very quickly. My suggestion: Go to the sculptures first, pass through the objects of art, through napoleon gallery and the go to the painting. If you are not so tired, try the other sessions of the museum as well.
Jardin des Tuileries
The Tuileries Garden is a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Created by Catherine de Medici as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was eventually opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution. In the 19th and 20th century, it was the place where Parisians celebrated, met, promenaded, and relaxed.
Very nice garden in front of Louvre. Great for a walk and it offers a great view from its edge, at Place de la Concorde, where you can see the beginning of Champs-Elysees and the whole Louvre building.
L'église de la Madeleine
Its architecture is remarkable and its structure has a lot of art details. It worth visiting inside.
Galeries Lafayette (Haussmann)
All the famous brands and products in one place combined with an outstanding architecture and decoration.
The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica and often simply Sacré-Cœur, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in Paris, France.
Its architecture is unique and its position (on the top of the hill) really highlight it. You’re going to have a fantastic view of Paris from there.
The dominant of this district is the Basilica of the Sacré Cœur. There are many other significant sights and museums in the area. In the past, many famous artists had worked in Montmartre, including Salvador Dalí and Pablo Picasso.
The traditional bohemian neighborhood of Paris, with a lot of street art and cafes.
The Musée d'Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the left bank of the Seine. It is housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin, and Van Gogh. Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum's opening in 1986. It is one of the largest art museums in Europe.
It's a mid-size museum, so you can appreciate well without feeling tired, like the Louvre. The museum's collection is really rich and is focused on paintings.
Pont Alexandre III
This is the most famous bridge of Paris. The sculptures on the bridge are really nice and the bridge itself has a beautiful structure.
It’s a place for temporary expositions. The building is very big and has a nice architecture with a beautiful glass roof and most of the people just explore it from outside.
Avenue des Champs-Élysées
Marcel Proust lovingly described the genteel elegance of the storied Champs-Élysées during its Belle Époque heyday, when its cobblestones resounded with the clatter of horses and carriages. Today, despite unrelenting traffic and the intrusion of chain stores and fast-food franchises, the avenue still sparkles. There's always something happening here: stores are open late (and many are open on Sunday, a rarity in Paris); nightclubs remain top destinations; and cafés offer prime people-watching, though you'll pay for the privilege—after all, this is Europe's most expensive piece of real estate. Along the 2-km (1¼-mile) stretch, you can find marquee names in French luxury, like Cartier, Guerlain, and Louis Vuitton. Car manufacturers lure international visitors with space-age showrooms. Old stalwarts, meanwhile, are still going strong—including the Lido cabaret and Fouquet's, whose celebrity clientele extends back to James Joyce. The avenue is also the setting for the last leg of the Tour de France bicycle race (the third or fourth Sunday in July), as well as Bastille Day (July 14) and Armistice Day (November 11) ceremonies. The Champs-Élysées, which translates to "Elysian Fields" (the resting place of the blessed in Greek mythology), began life as a cow pasture and in 1666 was transformed into a park by the royal landscape architect André Le Nôtre. Traces of its green origins are visible towards the Concorde, where elegant 19th-century park pavilions house the historic restaurants Ledoyen, Laurent, and the more recent Lenôtre.
The most famous avenue of Paris, combing a series of famous stores, cafes and glamour! Perfect for walking and shopping!
Arc de Triomphe
The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile is one of the most famous monuments in Paris, standing at the western end of the Champs-Élysées at the center of Place Charles de Gaulle, formerly named Place de l'Étoile — the étoile or "star" of the juncture formed by its twelve radiating avenues.
The Arc impresses for its size and beauty. It's an important symbol of Paris and the view of Champs-Elysée is really nice from there.
The Eiffel Tower is a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris, France. It is named after the engineer Gustave Eiffel, whose company designed and built the tower.
The most remarkable symbol of Paris. The view from there is amazing but looking at it from outside is also very nice. It's better to visit at night.
