Paris tourist attractions - don't miss a thing by booking online
Paris is renowned for its sightseeing wonders and there are only slightly more café au laits consumed on a daily basis in France than there are Paris tourist attractions. Just like those miniature but deadly beverages the sights and attractions in Paris will leave any tourist giddy and excitable all day, a dip only coming when they have exhausted themselves and all the tourist attractions Paris has to offer. From the top of the Eiffel Tower to beneath the upended pyramid of the Louvre or Arc de Triomphe. Paris tourist attractions take you from dizzying heights and spectacular views to an immersion in the rich history of classical art in one of the most famous mueums such as Musee de Orsay.
Whether your interests lie in politics, art, history, shopping, sightseeing or vast green spaces Paris’ tourist attractions have everything the curious and ambling visitor could want. Geographically central in Western Europe Paris has played a large role in the development of the region over the last few centuries, and still an integral part of a world power, it is possible to see evidence of this diverse history and colourful present in the tourist attractions of Paris at every turn, unless you wonder the streets with your eyes, ears and senses closed. You will see the gothic history of Paris alive in buildings such as Notre Dame Cathedral and the Palace of Versailles as well as the grand nature of their decor in Montmartre Tower.
The attractions of Paris available to tourists deserve the huge crowds they draw in from around the globe who come armed with cameras and an open mind, and the best way to experience the attractions is not only to wander past and snap away like many tourists, but book a tour to learn more about the lavish and varied city. Tick off a list of Paris tourist attractions as you roam the streets, sprinkled with those all important coffee breaks of course, and keep track of those you have yet to see or will have to leave until next time (there will always be one…).
It is not only the attractions you see on the postcards on every street corner that constitute Paris tourist attractions and the most enjoyable and authentic things to do in Paris are hidden away but still in the shadow of the majestic and more recognizable sights. Climb the hill (or take the bus) to Sacré Coeur and wander the steep streets finding your new favourite restaurant or café in Paris away from other tourists enjoying the attractions. Relax in the sun (weather permitting) in the Bois de Boulogne like high societies finest before you or turn yourself into a Paris attraction to match Carla Bruni with a shopping dash down the Champs-Élysées.
