If you love city breaks, then Paris, France is a destination that you need to visit. Paris is famous for being one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and when you visit, you will see exactly why it gained this reputation. Beauty is everywhere in Paris. Fans of architecture, design, fashion, great food, and art will be in their element on a visit to the city of lights. 

Here are some of the top landmarks to include in your trip:

The Eiffel Tower
No trip to Paris is complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower. Paris’ most recognizable landmark is now celebrating its 130th anniversary and remains an ever-popular destination for tourists to visit. And plan for a visit both in the day and at night to see the spectacular illuminations that light up the landmark every time the clock strikes the hour. Also, while there head to the Tower to enjoy a special view across the city.

Beautiful Bridges
Take a stroll along the River Seine, and you will see that there are many beautiful parisian bridges to explore during your visit. Many of Paris’ bridges look like works of art in their own right, such as the Pont Alexandre III, and have fascinating histories that add to their appeal. One of Paris’ best-known bridges is the Pont des Arts, also known as the ‘love lock bridge’, and until recently, it was adorned with nearly a million padlocks. Due to part of the railing collapsing under the weight of the locks, the locks have been removed, but the Pont des Arts is still well worth a visit.

Arc de Triomphe
The Arc de Triomphe is another landmark that is instantly associated with Paris. This stunning piece of architecture was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806, but took another 30 years to complete. Standing at 164 feet tall, the Arc de Triomphe offers breathtaking views over Paris. This famous structure is located at the end of the Champs-Elysées.

The Louvre 
The Louvre is a must-visit landmark that dates back to the Middle Ages, and was once home to the French heads of state right up until 1870. Now the palace is home to the largest art museum in the world, and the Louvre is also considered the world’s most popular museum. In 2018 alone, the Louvre attracted more than 10 million visitors! The Louvre is easily recognizable thanks to its beautiful palatial architecture, and the more recent addition of the glass pyramid at its entrance. The Louvre is home to around 380,000 objects, but it’s most famous piece has to be Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa.
