Great Places To See When Visiting Paris

With so much to see and do in Paris, it is hard to place all the great destinations you can go to. To help you have a great vacation in the city, we have listed the crème de la crème to help you plan a great long weekend when you come and visit Paris.

Palais-Royal Gardens

Far from the normally busy streets you see in Paris, these serene gardens and beautiful boutiques are masterfully hidden behind the walls of a 17th-century palace. Also considered as one of the city’s best-kept secrets, the Palais-Royal is now home to antiquaries, designer boutiques, and world-class perfumers. Have a grand time enjoying lunch or teatime outdoors or splurge at the exquisite Grand Vefour restaurant, which is right in the garden. Once done, you can go straight to the Louvre or the Jardin des Tuileries.

Ile Saint-Louis

A perfect for travellers is going to the lively shopping and atmospheric streets of the Ile Saint-Louis. Have fun at the Parisian fare when at the Brasserie de l’Isle Saint-Louis, or taste their all-natural ice creams and sorbets at Bertillon.

Musee Picasso

Home to the world’s largest public collection of Picasso’s work, this immensely popular museum occupies almost 54,000 square feet in two buildings. The regal 17th-century Hotel Sale and a new building that is located at the back garden meant for temporary exhibitions.

Notre Dame de Paris

Notre Dame is the symbolic heart of Paris and France itself. Kings and queens exchanged their vows here, and even Napoleon was crowned in this Gothic cathedral. There is a lot to explore inside especially its famous windows and the great views of Paris.
