- Eiffel Tower
Visiting the iconic symbol, towering more than 1,000 feet high in the Champ de Mars Park, is a must, as it’s one of the world’s most photographed attractions. What would Paris be without its symbolic Eiffel Tower, presented at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889? Visitors can ride the elevator to dine in one of the fine restaurants. At night, it will sparkle like fairy lights every hour and the ascent of the Eiffel Tower is a must. The first floor houses the Eiffel Tower 58, 58 meters above the ground, on the second floor, you have a diving view on the ground below, and on the 3rd floor at you can see what the office of Gustave Eiffel was. It provides heart-stopping views over Paris from the new glass floor installed in 2014, if you’re brave enough to walk over it.
- Rosa Bonheur pub, Buttes-Chaumont
The Bonheur is relaxed in every sense, the place to be seen in the summer with wine, tapas and bees for company. Bucolic delights reign at Rosa Bonheur (‘pink happiness’), in the heart of the Buttes Chaumont Park, whose name refers to 19th-century French painter famous for her depictions of animals.
- Notre Dame
We advise you to walk around and climb the 387 steps to the top, which can be exhausting, but you will get to see the famous gargoyles. One of the most enduring symbols, known as Notre Dame, is located on the eastern half of the Ile de la Cité and it’s one of the finest examples of French Gothic, begun in 1163.
