The Louvre is probably the best-known museum in the world. Its monumental size and wealth of works make a visit to the Louvre a unique experience.

In the past, the Seine was important to Parisians as a means of communication and for transporting goods, but it's still important today for tourism. What could be more romantic than a cruise on the Seine? Sail while admiring the surrounding monuments, day and night. You can add a romantic candlelit dinner to your boat trip. With its bridges gracefully spanning the Seine, the riverboat ride at nightfall is a perfect way to discover Paris illuminated by the lights, and the charm of neighborhoods such as Montmartre, the French capital is the perfect place to spend a romantic moment.

The Eiffel Tower is the most visited monument in the world and a symbol par excellence of the city of Paris, France and even Europe. It's the n°1 visit for millions of visitors, who literally melt for its grandeur, its height, its stylized silhouette and, above all, its incredible views over Paris.

Avenue des Champs Elysées is one of the most famous avenues in the world. The most prestigious brands and their luxury boutiques are represented here. A veritable temple to open-air shopping, the Champs Elysées is a must for tourists to the French capital. Tourists can go shopping and combine business with pleasure at the very top of the Arc de Triomphe. Arc de Triomphe to admire Paris and its avenues.

Between the historic monuments (the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the beautiful buildings of Place Vendôme, the Pont des Arts...) that abound in Paris, the many entertainment venues (Théâtres du Chatelet or du Palais-Royal), the great gardens stretching right across the metropolis (Parc des Buttes Chaumont, Jardin des Tuileries or Parc Monceau) and the many museums with highly diverse collections (Musée du Louvre, Musée Rodin, Musée d'Orsay...), there's something for everyone! And let's not forget the exceptional Jardin des Plantes in the 5th arrondissement.
