The Charms of Avenue des Champs-Elysees
As perhaps the most famous avenue in the city, as well as the world, Avenue des Champs-Elysees radiates with a unique atmosphere of elegance. This iconic avenue has something for everyone, featuring both historic monuments, lovely boutiques, and delicious treats. Architecture enthusiasts are mesmerised by the world-known Arc de Triomphe that Napoleon built as a memorial to himself. The Grand Palais was beautifully restored and embellishes the other end of Avenue des Champs-Elysees.
The authenticity of Rue des Martyrs
There's simply no better way to soak in the authentic vibe of Paris than by mingling with the locals in the central neighbourhood market. As you stroll along Paris's old market streets, you'll be seduced by aromas spreading from boucheries, fromageries, and boulangeries. From ancient purveyors to high-end gourmet cafes, chocolatiers, pastry shops and chic boutiques, you can find everything that your heart desires.
The Sublimity of Sainte-Chapelle
Paris is famous for its awe-inspiring architecture, both modern and traditional, leaving everyone utterly enchanted. Sainte-Chapelle is one of the city's most beautiful architectural monuments. This enticing church represents a real gem of the Gothic style, with its large stained-glass windows and intricate design. The stunning glass panes portray 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments stretching across 15 windows. Housing precious Christian relics, such as Christ's crown of thorns, the Sainte-Chapelle is truly sublime.
The Beauty of le Musee d'Orsay
What was one a Beaux Art railway station now is one of the most famous museums in the world. The enticing and inspiring Musee d'Orsay itself is a real masterpiece featuring the mesmerising glass ceiling. Here, you can admire the works of the world's most significant artists, including Monet, Manet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Degas and many others. After exploring the permanent collection consisting of work ranging from neoclassicism to art nouveau, you can relax in one of the two lovely cafes, each one unique in their ways, or dine in style at the museum's beautiful restaurant.
The Wonders of the Louvre
You cannot visit Paris without getting lost in the world's largest and most famous museum - the Louvre. Since this museum stretches over 675,000 square feet, it will be impossible to explore it in its entirety, but keep in mind that there's no better place to get lost. With masterpieces such as Mona Lisa, Winged Victory, and the Venus de Milo, it's no wonder that the Louvre is an inevitable stop of the most popular Paris holiday packages. Even before you enter the museum, you'll be enchanted by its glass pyramid, yet another Paris's landmark.
