The magic of the City of Light is so great that it has always been one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. And one of the most important economic centres in Europe. Museums, architecture, gastronomy and shopping – all in a unique and unrepeatable city.

What to see and do in Paris:

  • Champs-Elysées
    One of the most elegant and beautiful avenues in Europe. Exclusive brands have their stores here, a symbol of luxury and glamour. And, of course, it is the final stages of the Tour de France, where the champion is crowned every year. During Christmas, it is even more attractive, with the Christmas lights on the trees on both sides of the avenue.
  • Eiffel Tower
    City icon, it does not leave anyone indifferent. Created for the 1889 World Fair, a must-see. The views of the city are impressive. You can also enjoy a romantic lunch or dinner at one of its restaurants. At night, the flashing lights are quite a spectacle to see.
  • Pont de Lalma
    Famous all over the world since Lady Di's accident. The bridge was built in 1854 by order of Napoleon III. There are four noteworthy statues, of which the Zouave serves as a benchmark for measuring the rise of the River Seine. Very close to the bridge is a replica of the Statue of Liberty's flame, which has become an impromptu place for people to pay homage to Princess Diana.
  • Louvre Museum
    One of the largest concentrations of art. You can find everything from Flemish and Italian paintings, works by Velázquez, to rooms full of Egyptian sarcophagi and Greek Etruscan and Roman sculptures. You won't be able to see everything, but we're sure not to leave without seeing the Mona Lisa.
  • Pont Neuf
    The oldest and longest of the Parisian bridges and the first to be built in stone. To contemplate its 385 masks carved by the French sculptor Germain Pilon, the best way is to do it from one of the "Bateaux mouche".
  • Odéon
    A bohemian district where you can watch the world come and go from one of the typical terrace cafés. Historic façades, winding queues in front of the cinemas... That's the atmosphere in the Odeón district at any time of day. A true concentration of life and culture!
  • Notre-Dame Cathedral, Paris
    One of the main reasons to visit the Île de la Cité, where the Gothic cathedral was built. This temple has seen very important events: coronation of Napoleon as Emperor of the French, the beatification of Joan of Arc and the coronation of Henry VI of England. Although it is in the process of being rebuilt due to a fateful fire, the beauty of its exterior alone makes it worth a visit.
  • Montmartre
    The Montmartre district hides treasures, one of them is the Wall of Love. The Abbesses subway stop is the starting point and it is only a few steps away from the subway. The words 'I love you' are written in more than 300 languages on a 40 m2 wall. This was the idea of the artists Frédéric Baron and Claire Kitode. We continue our itinerary to the Café des 2 Moulins, where Amélie Poulain works in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's film. Don't forget to grab a snack before continuing to the Sacre Coeur to gaze out over its panoramic view of Paris, followed by taking a look at the work of the artists in the Place du Tertre. Maybe you can be persuaded to get your portrait done as a nice souvenir of your visit. The area surrounding the square is a maze of alleys, filled with restaurants, cafés and colourful shops.
