Day 1: Let us start with The Eiffel Tour

The symbol and cultural icon of the country, designed in 1889 is found in the middle of Paris, on Champ he Mars. This masterpiece has a height of 320 meters and includes three levels. Visiting the interior of the Eiffel Tour, you will definitely get to see the best panorama ever, while having a picnic with the best wine and cheese, or maybe you might fancy a glass of the best champagne!

Musee du Louvre

Before becoming a museum open to the public and THE most famous museum in the world, the Louvre was the home of famous French kings like Philippe-Auguste and Charles V, and was founded by Napoleon Bonaparte. The galleries of Louvre are displayed across almost 652,300 square feet and are divided in 8 departments. Its collection covers paintings, drawings, artifacts and sculptures. So if you heard of Leonard Da Vinci’s famous Mona Lisa, of the Greek sculpture Venus of Milo, or of Eugene Delacroix’s Liberty Leading the People, then this is the place where you can admire the original works of these famous artists and even take a picture of them.

Cruise on the river Seine

The Seine River passes right through the heart of Paris and the majority of its landmarks are located near it. After climbing the stairs of the Eiffel Tour and walking in every room of the Louvre Museum, you deserve a profound relaxation: a lovely boat cruise on the Seine, where you can simply sit back and admire the monuments far away from the city noise.

Day 2: Notre-Dame

The Seine River passes right through the heart of Paris and the majority of its landmarks are located near it. After climbing the stairs of the Eiffel Tour and walking in every room of the Louvre Museum, you deserve a profound relaxation: a lovely boat cruise on the Seine, where you can simply sit back and admire the monuments far away from the city noise.

Musee d’Orsay

You might ask yourself “Why should I visit Musee d’Orsay if I’ve already visited the most famous musem in the world which already has the most historical and cultural background?” Because the Louvre indeed covers the majority of famous workpieces, but only those belonging to Antiquity and Reinnascentist period. You must visit le Musee d’Orsay to admire the 19th and 20th century masterpirces of famous painters like Monet, Renoir, Duchamps, Van Gogh, Cezanne or Picasso.

Wine tasting

Feeling tired and puzzled after sight-seeing museums and cathedrals? Then you deserve another dizzy experience. It’s true that the champagne was invented by the French, but this does not mean that they do not have excellent and fine wines. You might try the experience of the Caves du Louvre, a wine cellar from the 18th century.

Day 3: The Palace of Versailles

The Palace of Versailles is more about history than culture. One of the most famous royal palaces, Versailles was the estate of French kings such as Louis XIV and Marie Antoinette. By visiting Versailles, you get to see the Hall of Mirrors, the Kings Grand Apartments and to take a walk in the beautiful gardens outside.

L’Arc de Triomphe

Another landmark of Paris, L’Arc de Triomphe may be seen right on Champs Elysees, the most famous avenue in Paris. This monument was built in the memory of the people who died during the French Revolution in 1789. L’Arc de Triomphe is open to the public and its top offers a beautiful view over the city and the Eiffel Tour.

Place de la Concorde

Located in the 8th district on the east side of the river Seine, La Place de la Concorde is the largest public square of Paris. Built in 1772, the place was known for the execution of many royal figures like Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. It was also named La Place de la Revolution. On the lovely square, we can observe the famous Obelisk, a gift offered to King Louis Philippe, which came right from Egypt and was carried by 300 servants. Another important part of the square is Pont of Concorde, which is a bridge that crosses the river Seine to connect Quai des Tuileries to Quai d’Orsay. Except these two ancient monuments, in our lovely square we can admire beautiful fountains and sculptures, and probably the biggest Ferris wheel we will get to see in France, La Grande Roue.

The Paris catacombs

Visiting the Paris catacombs might be a unique and strange experience, far from being similar with everything you have seen so far. So if you don’t lack courage and curiosity and you have strong nerves, then you will absolutely love the history of the catacombs. The catacombs are some sort of tunnels which are displayed on a 2 km surface, at 30 meters under the ground. They are practically a cemetery of human skulls, bones and remains, most of them belonging to the people who died during the French Revolution. The complete tour can be made in 45 minutes, and being a very narrow room, you will enter on one side and exit on a different side.
