Top Places To See In Paris

January 3, 2018

Sharing the most Instagrammable and picturesque places in Paris! This city isn't called the city of love for nothing... it has beauty on every corner!

  1. Musèe du Louvre: The largest art exhibit in the world! Home of the Mona Lisa and thousands of other famous pieces of art.

2. Arc de Triomphe: One of the most famous landmarks in Paris and the craziest roundabout you will ever see!

3. Louis Vuitton: One of the most famous stores in Paris and also the head quarters for this high end brand.

4. Palais Royal Garden: A famous photo location and piece of local art.

5. Place Vendome: The home of one of the many Louis XIV monuments and now a high end hotel along with amazing shopping!

6. Place de la Concorde: One of the major public town squares in Paris and has amazing views of the river along with a Ferris wheel.

7. Seine River: Almost any place on the Seine River will make for the perfect photo! Bridges of all shapes and sizes, gorgeous buildings in the back ground, and boat tours floating by all day long.

8. Government Buildings: Almost all of the governments buildings in Paris have a beautiful timely aura about them and make for the best pictures!

9. Love Lock Bridge: The original love lock bridge has now been removed but that hasn't stopped tourists from carrying on the tradition. The new love lock bridge has been moved just one bridge over right across from the Sainte Chapelle church.

10. Notre Dame: One of the most famous churches in the world! This church is perfectly perfect from the front or the back!

11. Sacrè-Coeur: My absolute favorite location in Paris that offers the best views! Sacrè-Coeur is one of the newest churches in Paris and has the greatest views of the valley.

12. Montmartre: The hill overlooking the valley is full of old-time Parisian homes and shops. One of the only places in Paris that we saw street painters like you see in the movies. So dreamy!

13. The Eiffel Tower: This one is a big DUHHHHH! The best place to take photos of the Eiffel Tower is at the Trocadero on the other side of the river from the tower. It is also the best place to watch the light show after dark!

    Nice photos!
    But as a frequent visitor to Paris I think the “love locks” are a safety hazard and should be removed from the other bridges as well. The city removed 45 tons of locks from Pont des Arts after one of the side fences collapsed under the weight. Fortunately no one was injured when this happened, but it became clear that the locks had to go.

    Wow that is crazy! 45 tons😱 I do agree. The idea behind it is good, but definitely a hazard.

    Yes, I thought the locks were a cute idea when they first started, but then the sheer mass of them became unsustainable. About ten years ago I wrote my first blog post about the locks, which began: “Here’s the cheapest way to declare your eternal love for that special person in your life, the one you met this afternoon and are trying to maneuver into bed.”

    Montmatre is amazing! We also enjoyed The Dôme des Invalides which contains Napoleon’s Tomb.

    I don’t mean to nit pick, Kelsey, but the Louvre is a bit shy of being the world’s largest art museum. Try The Hermitage near St. Petersburg, Russia. When I was there in 1974, it was said if you spent 30 seconds at every exhibit it would take X (I don’t remember the number) years to see everything. (Oh, and BTW, the world’s largest collection of Faberge eggs is the Kremlin Museum. You guys should plan a trip there. And after taking the train to Moscow, then visit a circus there. And the State Kremlin Palace Concert Hall (formerly the Palace of Congresses). It’s an amazing place, and the production of intermission snacks is a site to behold: Such Russian order and efficiency to be able to serve and feed 5,000 people in less than half an hour. (And Moscow’s subways are ‘art galleries’, too. Check ’em out.)

    Oh, sorry. While we were there that is what one of the workers told us. And thats what pops up when I google what the largest art museum is. Who know! haha. We will definitely be making a trip to Russia. Definitely on my bucket list!😀
