Paris can enchant you with its overwhelming charm and legendary architecture. The inviting sidewalk cafes and world-class museums, along with fabulous shopping centres and gleaming boutiques, you can enjoy them all in the world’s most romantic city. With so many amazing things to see in Paris, one can easily get distracted and can’t effectively categorize the itinerary. You can easily eat an overpriced meal and buy an expensive pair of shoes. Paris can surprise and disappoint you at the same time, if you don’t plan your trip to the City of Light.

Here are the top 5 things to do in Paris:

Notre-Dame – Located in the heart of France, the Cathedral of Notre-Dame is one of the most visited spots in Paris. The foundation was laid in 1163 by Pope Alexander III and took 170 years to create this magnificent structure.

Musee du Louvre – This is one of the world’s most impressive museums, which contains 35,000 priceless objects. King Phillippe-Auguste built thisin 1190; Charles V was the first king to call it home. It has a royal painting collection of over 12 from Italy.

Eiffel Tower – This goes without saying that one must visit Eiffel Tower when in Paris. In 1889, this structure rose to the Paris skyline and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. It weighs 10,100 metric tons and was engineered by Gustave Eiffel.

Sacre-Coeur – This is one of the most photographed places in the city and has a spectacular white outline that watches over Paris at its highest point. It was built as a memorial for 58,000 French soldiers who died during the France-Prussian War and took 46 years to build.

Musee d’Orsay – 

This is a wonderful collection of wide range of art forms from 1848-1914 periods. It was later used as a theatre and as auction rooms, and was eventually converted into a striking museum.

Paris is a magical place that can give you memories for a lifetime. Plan you trip while keeping your budget and likes in mind, and you will surely have the best time of your life.

Specialty Drinks – I thought I would add one bonus activity to enjoy while in Paris. When visiting any French part of the world it is a no brainer that you should do some wine tasting and enjoy a few local alcoholic drinks that are made especially in Paris. A good friend of mine runs a wedding bartending company at www.mobilebarservicewpg.com, she has had the luxury of visiting Paris on a number of occasions and has integrated a lot of French drink recipes into her own drink menus. Here are a couple drinks she recommends trying when in Paris:

  1. Cafe au Lait – We will assume while you’re here that you will be drinking quality coffee & espresso, so this one is an absolute must when deciding on which drink to indulge in first. It consists of a quality locally brewed coffee combined with an equal amount of steamed or warm milk. Enjoy either virgin or with a touch of French liqueur.
  2. Kir Royale –  This is one of the most popular French cocktails. You may use white wine or champagne combined with a dash of creme de cassis which gives it a pinkish colour once mixed.
