The Best Places To Visit in Paris
Today I thought I'd explore some of the best places to visit on a trip to Paris. For a native Parisian, I'm sure these are incredibly obvious, however when I visit Paris these are the places that I like to visit. I have deliberately left out places such as the Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, and Versailles. While these are incredible attractions to visit, and are famous for a reason, I decided to focus on other places in Paris. Again, some are obvious, some are a bit more out there, so enjoy!
I thought I'd get the most obvious one out of the way first! It may be like marmite for some people (either you love it or you hate it), but personally I think there's nothing more fun than visiting a Disney theme park! While the Paris location might not be the largest or the most impressive, there's still tons of fun attractions there to make for a fantastic day (or two) out. I'm visiting Disneyland Paris again in October (hopefully), so I will be making more content around this later this year!
Seine River Cruise
One of the best ways to see Paris is via a river cruise. It's an incredibly relaxing way to get off your feet and see some of the top sights in the city, and they also provide commentary to increase your knowledge of French history. I always try to fit in a river cruise when I visit Paris because they are so enjoyable!
I did this experience for the first time on my last trip, and it was amazing! The Paris Catacombs are mass graves underneath the streets of the city, lined with rows and rows of bones and skulls. As such, it's obviously an incredibly spooky and eery experience, especially on a quiet day when there aren't many people down there, but it's also a really unique, interesting way to spend part of your day. When you're down there it feels like they go on forever, especially when you walk for a mile and see that there's so much of the catacombs that visitors aren't even allowed to explore.
If you're into art, the Musee D'Orsay is a fantastic place to visit. There's so much to see that you could easily spend hours there, and the building itself is breath taking. There are so many famous paintings by classic artists, that any art fan will have an amazing time here.
Another one for art lovers. The Rodin Museum is located in the former home of one of the most famous sculpture artists in the world. The grounds are so relaxing to walk around and look at the art, and there's a fantastic cafe there as well for a pit stop. The house is spectacular, and it's a great place to walk around if you're a fan of architecture and/or interior design.
So those are my recommendations for places to visit in Paris. My question of the day is: what is your favourite thing to do in Paris?
