The French capital is one that has been drawing visitors for centuries. From its wonderful historic monuments to its exceptional cuisine, it is a destination unlike any other. Wander in and out of museums, cafes, farmers markets, beautiful gardens and enjoy the romance of the city.

Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower:

There’s no mistaking it: the Eiffel Tower rips through the air like a giant. This impressive symbol of France can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. Reigning 324 meters high, the iron tower has dominated the Parisian horizon ever since the 1889 Universal Exhibition. Its construction -- completed in just 2 years, 2 months and 5 days was an incredibly technical and architectural feat. Meant to stay standing for only 20 years, the Eiffel Tower was saved by its immense popularity and by Gustave Eiffel’s scientific experiments. In fact, its creator suggested a more functional purpose to the tower: use it as an antenna for the first radiophonic transmissions. Although its existence was controversial from the beginning, the Eiffel Tower ended up conquering the hearts and minds of its most ardent critics. Today, the Eiffel Tower is home to numerous events that attract people from all around the world.

Take a River Boat Cruise on the Seine:

Traditional, elegant riverboats offer an alternative way to discover the City of Lights. Once onboard navigating past monuments and buildings, you’ll be able to fully enjoy your time on the Seine. The Seine has always been and forever will be the artery that runs through the heart of Paris. Geographically speaking, the river is the capital’s central axis and has always played a major role in Paris’s history. Identified as a territorial and economic advantage, the Seine has accompanied, if not at times led Paris’s growth. Several landmarks throughout the city attest to this rich past.

Admire the Notre-Dame Cathedral of Paris:

Notre-Dame is a masterpiece of French Gothic architecture. Initially spearheaded by bishop Maurice de Sully, the cathedral’s construction spanned for more than two decades: from the beginning of the 11th century to the first half of the 14th century. The cathedral has been a firsthand witness to several historical events such as the arrival of the Holy Crown in 1239, the exoneration of Joan of Arc in 1456 and the coronation of Napoléon I in 1804. Although the monument is known for its structural harmony when looking attentively one can make out various minor, asymmetric elements that were introduced to avoid the monotony typical of classic gothic architecture.

Visit the Louvre Museum:

The controversial glass pyramid located in the Napoléon courtyard rapidly became symbolic of the museum. The 13th century Philippe Auguste fort that surrounds the museum was reorganized until becoming the royal residence for several centuries. It wasn’t until 1793 that it became the Central Museum of Arts, France’s first national museum. Year after year the museum’s collections grew larger, thereby taking up more and more space at the palace. Today, the immensity of the Louvre is mind-boggling: it has been estimated that nine months are needed to see each and every work of art on display. The Louvre is indeed one of the world’s biggest museums; its exhibition surface area of 18 acres displays 38,000 works of art out of the 460,000 that the museum possesses within its walls.
