Musée d’Orsay

The home of France’s national collection from the impressionist, postimpressionist and art nouveau movements spanning from 1848 to 1914 is the glorious former Gare d’Orsay railway station – itself an art nouveau showpiece – where a roll-call of masters and their world-famous works are on display.

Jardin du Luxembourg

This inner-city oasis of formal terraces, chestnut groves and lush lawns has a special place in Parisians’ hearts. Napoléon dedicated the 23 gracefully laid-out hectares of the Luxembourg Gardens to the children of Paris, and many residents spent their childhood right here. Such beautiful gardens can’t be missed during your visit to Paris.

Basilique du Sacré-Cœur

Begun in 1875 in the wake of the Franco-Prussian War and the chaos of the Paris Commune, Sacré-Cœur is a symbol of the former struggle between the conservative Catholic old guard and the secular, republican radicals. It was finally consecrated in 1919, standing in contrast to the bohemian lifestyle that surrounded it. The view over Paris from its parvis is breathtaking.

Centre Pompidou

Renowned for its radical architectural statement, the 1977-opened Centre Pompidou brings together galleries and cutting-edge exhibitions, hands-on workshops, dance performances, cinemas and other entertainment venues, with street performers and fanciful fountains outside. The Musée National d’Art Moderne, France’s national collection of art dating from 1905 onward, is the main draw. Don’t miss the spectacular Parisian panorama from the rooftop.

Canal St-Martin

The tranquil, 4.5km-long Canal St-Martin was inaugurated in 1825 to provide a shipping link between the Seine and Paris’ northeastern suburbs. Emerging from below ground near place de la République, its towpaths take you past locks, bridges and local neighbourhoods. Come for a romantic stroll, cycle, picnic lunch or dusk-time drink.

Château de Versailles

Amid magnificently landscaped formal gardens, this splendid and enormous palace was built in the mid-17th century during the reign of Louis XIV to project the absolute power of the French monarchy, which was then at the height of its glory. Years later, you can visit it and let your eyes feast on the magnificence of the gardens and building. Don’t miss it!

Eiffel Tower

No one could imagine Paris today without it. But Gustave Eiffel only constructed this elegant, 320m-tall signature spire as a temporary exhibit for the 1889 World’s Fair. Luckily, the art nouveau tower’s popularity assured its survival. Prebook online to avoid painfully long ticket queues.

Opera National

The glorious Second Empire architecture of the Palais Garnier alone is a convincing reason to visit, with its multicoloured marble, imposing Grand Staircase, Grand Foyer and Chagall fresco. However, you’ll stay for the incredible performances of the opera artists that take the stage of this impressive building. The opera house seats 22,200, with room for up to 450 performers on stage, and it’s reason enough to dress smart and make this night out the most fancy you can make it.

It went on to host the greatest stars of the early 20th century, from Joséphine Baker to Charlie Chaplin. Today the sumptuous, velvet-bedecked space plays host to a diverse roster of dramatic and musical talent. You definitely can’t miss visiting this incredible space.
