Arc d’ Triumph- Located at the end of the Champs-de-Elysees, the Arc d’Triumph is one of the most famous Paris landmarks. Highly recommend climbing it at night to get a great view of Paris.  

Eiffel Tower and Park- Pick up a couple of baguettes and a bottle of champagne and have yourself a picnic underneath the iconic tower, and then climb to the top and you can see the entire city.

Champs E’lysee- The “Rodeo Drive” of Paris, the Champs E’lysee is home to the most beautiful and eclectic fashion houses, stores, and restaurants.

Church of Notre Dame- The infamous home of Quasimodo, this gothic church is unlike anything you’ll ever see. Sculptures and stained glass windows show influences of naturalism and was one of the very first gothic cathedrals. Construction began in the 12th century, but was not until 300 years later that construction was completed. A must see in Paris.

Palace of Versailles- The home of Marie Antoinette and several French Kings during the French Revolution, Versailles is a must hit spot during your Paris trip. The Gardens and Park of the Chateau’s is unlike anything you will ever see and an absolute must if you want to get the best Instagram picture.

Musee d’Orsay- An absolute must for al art lovers. They have all types of art including architecture, models, paintings, sketches, and statues. If anything, go to the Impressionism floor and see beautiful works by Monet, Van Gogh and more.

Centre Pompidou- The museum of modern art is a great museum for people who love the modern word and futuristic architecture. Not only are the exhibits one of a kind, but the building itself will make you feel like you traveled a few years into the future.

*Munchies*

Le Bouillon Chartier- Traditional French food; go for the escargot, foie gras, a whole fish, French onion soup, and amazing classic French wine; Address is 7 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75009 Paris; they are only open until 10pm so don’t go too late.

La Creperie des Champs Elysses- You can’t go to Paris and not get a crepe. The street crepes are great, but if you really want to go all out, go here and watch the magic of crepe making in front of your eyes, located on 5, Rue Washington75008 Paris, France. *highly recommend getting the banana nutella, you won’t be sorry*

“r.”- Expensive but so cool and great view of the Eiffel Tower. If you don’t go for dinner, at least go for a drink at the bar; kind of hard to find but so cool so ask around.

Angelina’s- Go for tea and hot chocolate in the afternoon – near the Lourve, so cute and great baked goods.

Lauduree- A trip to Paris is not complete without the best macaroons. Enough said.
