Guide To the Top 3 Tourist Attractions in Paris

It is the most beautiful place in the world to visit, and there are several Paris tourist attractions. There are so many attractions that it can be difficult to choose what to see and then figure out how to see it. That’s why we’ve put together this brief guide to the top Paris attractions – the things that travelers truly want to see. Take a few minutes to read over these instructions, and you won’t have to feel bad about missing any of them.

The Museum of the Louvre

How to Get to the Louvre

If you enjoy art, history, or beautiful architecture, you should go to the Louvre. Every year, another 9 million individuals are added. There will be queues, and there will be crowds. You must devise a strategy! The transportation plan comes first.

Simply take Line 1 to Metro Palais-Royal-Musée-de-Louvre (the entire name is one Metro stop), where you will have direct subterranean access to the Carrousel de Louvre and ticket booths. You can do it, but we cannot. Instead, we embark on a voyage and we propose taking Line 1 to Metro Tuileries. From there, go through the gardens, see the lovely Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, and then approach the museum through the Insiders Secret steps that lead from the gardens towards the “back door” of the Louvre.

Advisory — You can also take the incorrectly titled Metro Louvre-Rivoli on Line 1, but this will not let you into the Louvre or the gardens.

How to Enter the Louvre

The Louvre is extremely popular, and ticket queues are extremely long. Again, guided tours are your best buddy. It is advisable to take a small-group, skip-the-line tour that gets you into the Louvre as quickly as possible and takes you to the most famous works of art. Following that, you are free to explore on your own for as long as you choose. It’s the finest way, we promise.

Another strategy to avoid ticket lineups is to have a Paris Insiders Pass in your wallet. Before you go, you can order the pass online and use it to enter practically all of Paris’ major attractions. (The exception is the Eiffel Tower.)

Sacred Heart

How to Get to Sacre Coeur

The Basilique du Sacré Coeur de Montmartre, like the Eiffel Tower, is a Paris attraction that can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. In some ways, getting there is a matter of keeping it in sight and heading for it. Sacre Coeur is the large white chapel that dominates the skyline from its perch atop Montmartre’s hill.

We propose taking one way up to the church and another down. Line 2 Metro to Anvers station (on Boulevard de Rochechouart), then walk up Rue de Steinkerque to the funicular train that will take you up the hill. (Unfortunately, Steinkerque has been overrun with tacky souvenir stores; nonetheless, keep your gaze fixed on the church above you!) Climb additional steps to the basilica itself, but don’t forget to stay for one of Paris’ most incredible panoramic views.

How to Get in the Sacre Coeur

The entrance to Sacre Coeur is free, however the view from the dome is not, and there is a nominal price for that. Visit and climb the dome during dark or dawn for the best views. There are 300 steps to ascend, so prepare accordingly!
Spend an hour at the basilica before exploring Montmartre for a flavor of rural life. Rue Lepic, which runs down the hill to become Rue des Abbesses, is located west of Sacre Coeur. After going through stores, boulangeries, and restaurants, you’ll arrive at Place des Abbesses, which houses the Montmartre Metro station.

The Pointed Lady – The Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower in Paris

How to Get to the Eiffel Tower

The best view of the Eiffel Tower is from the square of Palais de Chaillot at Trocadero across the river. So, begin at Metro Trocadero, where you may take in the wonderful view before walking down the steps, past the gardens of Chaillot, and across Pont d’Alene to the Tower itself.

Another pleasant way to get there is by Metro Alma Marceau. Walking across the bridge (Pont d’Alma) provides another beautiful perspective of the tower, and the walk down the river from there is also extremely pleasant. (You won’t get lost if you go for the tall pointed item!)

We don’t like taking the RER Champs de Mars Tour Eiffel or the Metro Bir Hakeim because neither is attractive enough, but we do enjoy taking Metro Line 6 to Trocadero (direction Montparnasse) for the spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower as the train crosses the river. Prepare your camera.

How to Climb the Eiffel Tower!

We know from personal experience that the greatest way to see the Eiffel Tower is on a skip-the-line trip. We used to think we could handle everything on our own, but after taking a tour that skipped the ticket lines and took us straight to the elevator, we were hooked. Look, you can expect to wait two hours or more if you stand in line almost every day of the year. Do you want to stand in line or have a good time?

Insightful Tip: These tours sell out quickly, so book early.
