So, what to do in Paris? There are so many sights to see, you won’t get the chance to visit them all. Without a doubt, the Eiffel Tower is the quintessential tourist attraction you’ve got to visit on your Paris vacay.

There are also many other iconic sights to see, such as the Arc de Triomphe and the Notredame (when it’s back to its former glory). Also try a river cruise along the Seine, a leisurely ramble through the park of Verdant, and a spooky tour of the Catacombs hidden underneath the city.

Lourve museum tour is also a MUST DO when you visit Paris. Seeing the famous “Mona Lisa” painting is an obligatory thing to do for culture vultures visiting the city.

On top of the lip-smacking delights, nearly everywhere you go will have trademark awnings with outdoor seating. Grab a glass of wine and watch the world go by for an authentic “à la Parisien” experience!
