- The Eiffel Tower - Built for the 1889 World's Fair by engineers, there was mixed emotions from locals for the giant metal structure. Now "The Iron Lady" is France's most beloved landmark. Took about two years to complete and currently hosts visitors 365 days a year.
- Napoléon's Tomb - This very impressive building serves as the scene for several key events in French history. The church is covered in a gold dome that holds multiple tombs and, of course Napoleon.
- Alexander III Bridge - Being on this bridge makes you feel like you are in a scene in a movie. Built at the end of the 19th century as a part of the Universal Exposition of 1900, this ornate bridge would help visitors cross the Seine. Each of the statues on the bridge was created by a different artist. And you will enjoy Les Invalides to your back and the Grand and Petit Palais in front.
- Louvre Museum - A central landmark to Paris, this museum began as a fortress and was extended many times to create the Louvre Palace. Millions of awe struck visitors come to see the thousands of artifacts from across the world that adorn the museum. Whether it be ancient Egypt, Michaelangeo or the Mona Lisa that interests you, the Louvre has something for you.
- Musée D'Orsay - Built for the 1900 Universal Exhibition, the building itself is amazing as the former glorious Gare d'Orsay railway station. Now transformed into a museum, this is home to extensive work from Monet, Manet, Degas, Van Gogh and more.
- Tuileries Gardens - The French know how to design beautiful gardens and the Jardin des Tuileries is one of the most beautiful gardens in France. It is a place to explore, and you will stroll through it before you stop for a lovely lunch (price not included). This is a great break from hustle and bustle of the city.
- Place de la Concorde - One of the major squares of Paris. This place is the gateway from Paris' gruesome past to the present. You will learn about The French Revolution, Paris' most controversial gift, and the City's unique status as a fashion icon.
