First up has to be climbing to the top of the Eiffel Tower to see the breathtaking views of the city.

The lifts take visitors 905 ft into the sky and there is even a champagne bar for toasting special occasions or just celebrating the ascent to the top!

Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the most imposing structures in France. The Gothic masterpiece has stunning stained glass windows, vaulted ceilings and incredible sculptures. Construction first started in 1163 and the two towers, at 226 ft high, were the tallest structures in Paris until the Eiffel Tower was built.
For history lovers, the Jardin du Luxembourg, the Luxembourg Gardens, is a perfect place to visit. Sitting around Luxembourg Palace, these well-kept gardens have manicured lawns, tree-lined promenades and model sailboats. It was created in 1612 and has stayed largely the same since then. There are more than 100 statues and monuments as well as the Medici Fountain. It’s a perfect place to get away from the busy city and spot wildlife.
