Our visit to Paris to see as much as possible in a short 3 day visit.If you are only there for a few days you need to plan before you go what you want to see.

Local Attractions in Paris The Eiffle Tower

Eiffel tower view

The most recognisable symbol of Paris is the 324 metre (1,063 ft) Eiffel tower on the banks of the Seine.

You can go to the top in the lift, big queues at peak times. The view of Paris is well worth the long wait .

The view from the observation platform, especially at dusk, more than exceeds any expectations. All of Paris shines below as the city is illuminated by both the street lights and the fading sun.

If this is your first trip to Paris try the hop-on hop-off bus tour which visit most of the main points of interest in the City it is run by Les Cars Rouges. You can get on the bus at Quai Branly, in front of Bridge of Iéna.We have used the Paris pass which as most of the places of interest.

A street in Paris

Paris street


Paris has one of the best antique markets in Europe just on the outskirts at Les Puces de Saint-Ouen Address: 48, rue Jules Vallès (Marché des Antiquaires), 93400 Saint-Ouen (between the Porte de St-Ouen and Porte de Clignancourt, just outside 18th arrondissement) This is on every weekend and attracts large crowds. It is the largest market I have been to the area is full of stalls and shops selling antiques and bric-a-brac.

The Moulin Rouge


Moulin Rouge Paris


Built originally as a windmill, this world-famous cabaret was transformed into a dance hall in 1889.

If you fancy a Vegas-style night out with dinner there are plenty of inclusive packages you can book.

Montmartre is a historic area on the Butte, home to the Basilica of the Sacré Coeur. Montmartre has always had a history with artist and has many studios and cafés The white domes of the Sacred Heart basilica patrol the Paris skyline from the top of Montmartre. It was built in 1873 climb to the top of the dome for the view of Paris. On clear days you can also catch grand vistas of the city from the entrance terrace and steps Try to visit at sunrise or long after sunset, as otherwise this area is crammed with bus groups

Louvre Paris

The Louvre Museum presents collections of western art from the Middle Ages to 1850, and the antique civilisations that have preceded and influenced this art. They are divided into 8 departments : Oriental Antiquities, Islamic Art, Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities and, for the modern period, Paintings, Sculptures, Art items, Prints The best way to visit is with a Museum Passes: go to the front of the line every time! Unlimited visits! Valid at 65 Museums and Monuments. There are 1, 3, and 5 day passes.

I found one of the best ways to see the Louvre and the other museums. Is in a small group with an English speaking guide. I went with Paris Muse
