The Ultimate Paris bucket list travel guide
If you’re planning a trip to Paris and wish to visit all of the iconic spots, here’s your ultimate Paris bucket list travel guide.
The Eiffel Tower is one of the most iconic buildings in the whole world.
When Gustave Eiffel built it back in 1889 the was outrage from some of frances leading artists due to its large metal presence.
There are so many photo opportunities to capture a great shot, we got off the metro at the Trocadéro steps and the view was amazing.
We took a couple on the famous instagram steps then walked down and around the park for a even better view of the Iron Lady.
The Arc de Triomphe is another of the most famous monuments in Paris.
Standing at the centre of Place Charles de Gaulle, the Arc De Triomphe honours those who fought and died for France in the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. It has the names of all French victories and generals inscribed on its inner and outer surfaces.
Easy to reach from anywhere in the centre of Paris, this is an absolute must on your Paris bucket list!
Quick tip: If you head there early enough, there will be less traffic on the roundabout and hardly any tourists
The Louvre, the worlds largest art museum, just stunning to look at as you walk inside the grounds, gigantic glass pyramids catch your eye beautifully positioned above the museum.
The Louvre is a central landmark of the city and home to the famous Mona Lisa painting.
we arrived around lunch time and there was no que we walked straight in which we were amazed at, we spent a couple of hours wandering the vast halls of the Louvre taking in the art and sculptures.
Entrance is only €15 for adults. So if you are an art lover or have time to spare it would only be right to take a trip inside.
Otherwise the majority of tourists head to The Louvre to snap a photo outside its iconic glass pyramids.
After the Eiffel Tower, the Sacre-Coeur is actually the second highest point in the city!
Standing at the top of Montmartre Hill, you’ll have to climb the 270 steps to reach the famous Roman Catholic Church. There is also a monorail.
However, attracting around 10 million visitors per year, the view from the top is worth the walk. If your feeling fit you can walk the additional 300 steps to the Summit of Basilica.
Looking over the whole of Paris, the Sacre-Coeur itself is breathtaking.
So add it to your Paris bucket list and take your time exploring its history.
One of the quirkiest and most tourist friendly places in Paris.
The streets of Montmartre are old, cobbled lanes and some of the cutest you will find. Filled with famous cafes such as Le Consulat or La Mansion Rose, you can spend all afternoon cruising around, admiring the Parisian feel.
Palais Royal Columns
These beautiful black and white marble pillars by artist Daniel Buren and a insta hotspot.
we came across them by accident after strolling through the palace gardens, there are 260 different sized pillars and we had lots of fun getting our photos here.
Right next door there is a beautiful cafe where we sat and took in Paris and watched the world go by.
