Paris
closeParis, the world's most popular city destination, has plenty of must-see places but make sure you spend at least a day strolling off the beaten path, as this is the only way to discover the real Paris: a lively cosmopolitan but undeniably French city.
The center of Paris is divided in 20 arrondissements with the majority of the world known attractions (Eiffel Tower, Champs-Elysées, Louvre, Panthéon, Notre-Dame,...) situated in the first 8 arrondissements.
Random Paris Highlights
Panthéon, Paris
The Panthéon, a 19th century building, was first designed as a church, but later turned into a civil temple. Its crypt contains the vaults of several of France's famous countrymen.
La Défense, Paris
La Défense is the prime high-rise office district of Paris. Many of Paris's tallest buildings can be found here as well a modern version of the Arc de Triomphe: the Grande Arche de la Défense.
Eiffel Tower, Paris
Probably the best known landmark in Europe, the Eiffel Tower is the symbol of Paris and one of the city's must-see attractions. You can climb up the stairs or take the elevator after waiting in the (long) queue.
Louvre Pyramid, Paris
The Louvre Pyramid was built in the 1980s as the main entrance to the Louvre Museum. The modern glass design forms a nice contrast with the historic architecture of the Louvre Palace.
