3 day tour in Paris
Paris is a city with many things to visit. It is really impossible to fully explore Paris during a three day vacation. On the top 10 things to do in Paris, with this tour you have seen the top 4 must-sees.
First day in Paris
On their first day in Paris, the majority of tourists immediately want to know the main sights of the French capital. If this is the case for you, we recommend you start with the Arc de Triomphe, which is of course located at the end of the Champs-Élysées avenue. Continue your visit from there by following the Avenue des Champs-Élysées to the Place de la Concorde and visit the Louvre and its pyramid. Do not underestimate this last place. The Louvre is the largest museum in the world and therefore takes a lot of time. Do you want to see the highlights? Be especially impressed by Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo.
Second day in Paris
A must-see place that you did not visit on your first day in Paris is of course the Eiffel Tower. However, you will want to see this important and world-famous monument at all costs during your 3 days in Paris. That’s why your second day will start here. Discover the Eiffel Tower and take the elevator upstairs. From the platform, you will have an impressive view of the city.
Then, continue your visit of the Champ du Mars Park to the Montparnasse Tower. In this building, you will find the fastest elevator in Europe. It will take you to an altitude of 209 meters in only 38 seconds. Of course, it goes without saying that you also have a sublime view of the city from the roof terrace of this tower.
Third day in Paris
The Montmartre district is a beautiful part of the city where you can walk for hours. There is a warm atmosphere, nice stores and restaurants and of course the famous Sacré-Coeur. From the nearest metro station you have to climb a few steps, but once you’re up there you’ll be rewarded with a beautiful view of Paris (unfortunately not with the Eiffel Tower). Montmartre is the artistic district of Paris as Picasso and Van Gogh, among others, lived there. This is also reflected in the streetscape. In the stores you can buy paintings, in the streets you can see artists working there.
The Sacré-Coeur is located on a hill in the district of Montmartre and offers a magnificent view. The 200 steps lead to the basilica and from these steps you have a view over the city of Paris.
Coming down from the Sacré-Coeur, you enter the Moulin Rouge district. It is also a nice area where you will find many stores. The most striking thing about this area is of course that you will find many sex shops. Every building in this street has literally something to do with sex. At the end of this street, you will come across the Moulin Rouge building, which is really not to be missed. The Moulin Rouge is a cabaret theater in Paris where you can dine in style while enjoying the show.
