Paris, the capital of France, is one of the most popular tourist destinations.

Paris tower

Not only is Paris often considered to be the ultimate romantic destination, it offers lots and lots of different attractions to everybody: young and old, modern and classical!

To get the first impression one can visit the Eiffel Tower, an iron jewel constructed in 1889. The tower stands at 324 m tall and offers a magnificent view of all of Paris.

Should you prefer a less crowded view-point you can chose the Montparnasse Tower, the tallest skyscraper in France.

The Montparnasse Tower is 210 m high and allows you to observe the city of light from a different angle.

Paris hosts numerous museums, the Louvre being the most famous one.

Louvre museum Paris

The former residence of the French kings located on the right bank of Seine today is home to more than 35,000 art objects from the prehistory to the 19th century. World-famous highlights of the Louvre collection include the mysterious Mona Lisa, also known as La Gioconda, of Leonardo da Vinci; Venus de Milo, the ancient Greek symbol of beauty; the zealous Seated Scribe from Saqqara, Egypt; the enigmatic "Ship of Fools" of Hieronymus Bosch, and the magnificent winged victory, Nike of Samothrace.

Should you prefer the renowned art of the impressionists, the Musée d'Orsay is the place to be. In this former railway station located on the left bank of Seine you will see paintings by Manet and Monet, Degas and Cézanne, and the controversial "L'Origine du monde" of Courbet.

Modern art fans should definitely visit the Georges Pompidou centre. The nearby located Stravinsky Fountain features sixteen figures representing themes of Igor Stravinsky's art.

Not far from Paris, one can visit the famous Versailles. This royal château reminding us of the times of the Sun King Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI is surrounded by magnificent gardens
