Day 12014/08/08

Château de Versailles Île-de-France, France

ヴェルサイユ宮殿(Château de Versailles)(Île-de-France, フランス)|Must-See Paris Attractions(Jenny Rhodesさん)

If time permits, a full day trip to visit Versailles, is well worth a visit. Located just outside of Paris, the Palace of Versailles and its grounds have architectural and topiary marvels. It was the central governmental seat of France, from 1682, under Louis the XIV, to 1789 under Louis the XVI. See all the ornate rooms, especially the famous hall of mirrors, and walk the beautiful gardens that surround the palace.

sacre coeur basilique Île-de-France, France

サクレ・クール寺院(sacre coeur basilique)(Île-de-France, フランス)|Must-See Paris Attractions(Jenny Rhodesさん)

One of the greatest cathedrals in the world, let alone France, the basilica of Sacré-Coeur located on the right bank in Montmartre. English language tours of the Sacré-Coeur are available.

Eiffel Tower Île-de-France, France

Eiffel Tower(Île-de-France, フランス)|Must-See Paris Attractions(Jenny Rhodesさん)

No trip to Paris would be complete, without a visit to this major landmark, at least once. Completed in 1889, this monument complex currently has two observation decks, a restaurant, several snack bars, lavatories and a post office. You can take elevators up the tower or be adventurous and walk up the stairs. Since visits to the Eiffel Tower tend to get crowded later in the day, consider going earlier. Also consider going to the middle level, instead of the upper. This will save time, avoiding additional waits for the elevator going to the very top. The view at the second level is not as spectacular as the top, but is still breathtaking.

Arc de Triomphe Île-de-France, France

凱旋門(Arc de Triomphe)(Île-de-France, フランス)|Must-See Paris Attractions(Jenny Rhodesさん)

One of the nicest boulevards in France is the Champs-Elysées. Walking from Place de la Concord to the Arc De Triomphe, one will see plenty of upscale shops, restaurants and hotels. During the day it tends to get crowded. Nighttime is better for photography, since plenty of illumination make pictures more interesting. If there during the day, pop over to the Arc De Triomphe. If doing so, don’t cross the traffic circle. Use the underground stairs to reach the monument. Built by Napoleon, as a tribute to his armies, there’s a small museum inside and on the roof, one can get a superb view of Paris.

Musée du Louvre Île-de-France, France

ルーヴル美術館(Muse du Louvre)(Île-de-France, フランス)|Must-See Paris Attractions(Jenny Rhodesさん)

The Louvre happens to be one of the most visited museums in the world. It is home to Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Antioch’s Venus De Milo, as well as many other works of art and antiquities. A true visit to this museum can’t be done in a day. Several days are needed to take everything in. To facilitate one’s visit here, consider getting tickets online, to forgo the usual long lines and consider researching the items you want to see, before entering.

Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris Île-de-France, France

ノートルダム大聖堂(Cathdrale Notre Dame)(Île-de-France, フランス)|Must-See Paris Attractions(Jenny Rhodesさん)

Visiting Notre-Dame Cathedral is another must see sight. It’s located by the banks of the Seine River on Île-de-la-Cité. Built on the former grounds of a Roman Temple, the cathedral offers interesting historical and architectural points. It was a launching ground for those who fought in the Crusades and was the place where Napoleon crowned himself emperor. Today one can marvel at the beautiful stained glass windows, the numerous statues and massive bells that reside in the tower. If still possible, climb the four hundred twenty-two spiral steps to reach the top of the tower for a magnificent view.
