Five Landmarks Not to Be Missed on a Vacation to Paris

Embarking on a vacation to France should be at the top of any intrepid traveler’s bucket list, and Paris is a city that should not be missed on any tour of France. If you are planning on heading on a luxury vacation in France, you want to make sure that you take some time to research where to go in advance. This article will highlight some of the most fascinating and famous landmarks you should seek out to explore on a vacation to Paris.

The Eiffel Tower

Undoubtedly the most iconic landmark in the city of love and one of the most famous man-made structures in the world, the Eiffel Tower in Paris is truly a sight to behold. This stunning tower is visible from most vantage points across the entire city, but to get a true sense of its wonder, standing underneath it among the beautiful surrounding Champ-de-Mars is a must. You’ll also find a Michelin-starred restaurant and panoramic champagne bar within the tower itself, which provides the perfect place to spend an evening when the tower is lit up by sparkling lights and illuminations.

The Louvre Museum

No trip to Paris would be complete without paying a visit to the largest museum in the world, the Louvre. Before heading inside, take in the simply breathtaking building in all its glory, before venturing through the museum’s many galleries and stairways where you’ll find over 30,000 works on display. Due to its popularity, the museum and its surroundings can often become overcrowded, so you could consider paying a visit during the extended hours on a Friday evening when it should be quieter.

Musée d’Orsay

Once a major train station within the heart of the city of Paris on the banks of the Seine, the Musée d’Orsay was opened to the public in the 1980s. You’ll find a wealth of art collections on display, featuring paintings, installations and sculptures from the likes of Van Gogh and Courbet. Throughout the year, the museum plays host to a number of fascinating events and exhibitions, so it’s worth having a look at what will be on when you pay a visit to Paris.

Arc de Triomphe

Standing at the center of the Place Charles de Gaulee, this magnificent world-famous monument draws tourists from across the globe to come and marvel at its splendor. The arch was built as a memorial to honor the lives of soldiers who fought for France, with the grave of the ‘Unknown Solider’ sitting at the center of the arch.

Le Marais

Make sure you set aside some time on your luxury vacation in France to explore the unique Parisian district of Le Marais. Found just north of the Seine, this trendy area boasts a wealth of traditional French restaurants where you can sample sumptuous cuisine and fabulous glasses of wine as you watch the world go by.

Spend an afternoon taking a leisurely stroll through the many cobbled winding streets and soak up the unique atmosphere and stunning architecture around every corner. You’ll also find many smaller galleries, museums and boutique vintage shops to explore and pick up those precious souvenirs to take home with you so you can cherish the memories you have made on your vacation.
