Discover Paris: 10 must-visit places

After writing our previous article about the 10 places to visit absolutely during a stay in Paris, we agreed that 10 wasn't enough to discover the city. In fact, the choice had been quite difficult, and we felt it would be a shame to deprive you of the rest of the list. With this in mind, and because at Parisi Tour, we're the friendly type, we decided to extend the article with a second part featuring 10 more must-see places and landmarks in the capital, worth visiting at least once!

Buckle up, it's time for another guided tour!

The Alexandre III Bridge

The Alexandre III Bridge crosses the Seine River just in front of the Hôtel des Invalides. It is easily recognizable by the majestic angels sitting at its ends and along its sides. Interestingly, this bridge was inaugurated in the year 1900 for the Universal Exhibition and was named after Tsar Nicholas III of Russia to honor the Franco-Russian alliance signed in 1891. If you walk across it in the evening, wait a bit for the Eiffel Tower lights to start twinkling; the view is magnificent!

The Père Lachaise Cemetery

The Cemetery of Père Lachaise is as much an institution as it is a curiosity. Its 43 hectares make it the largest cemetery in Paris, a destination for long walks for some, and for others, a true place of pilgrimage. If you wander through the alleys of the world's most famous necropolis, you will find the graves of some great artists and other celebrities who have left their mark on history, such as Marcel Proust, Guillaume Apollinaire, Molière, Édith Piaf, Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, and more recently Johnny Hallyday.

The Marais

One of the most well-known neighborhoods in the capital, the Marais is appreciated for its atmosphere, both during the day and the night. Indeed, during the day, you'll have plenty of opportunities to stroll through its quaint cobbled streets to discover trendy shops, thrift stores, and art galleries. When the sun sets, it's the bars and restaurants that take over to ensure you have a night to remember!

The Moulin Rouge

The Moulin Rouge is certainly the most famous cabaret in the world. Founded in 1889 in the heart of Pigalle, it was rebuilt identically after a fire in 1915. With its legendary French Cancan (always imitated but never equaled) and its beautiful dancers, the Moulin Rouge has inspired many artists, including Baz Luhrmann, co-writer and producer of the eponymous film released in 2001.

The catacombs of Paris

Buried 18 meters deep, the catacombs of Paris attract tens of thousands of visitors each year, both for their history and their curiosity. And for good reason, these tunnels are said to contain no less than six million deceased Parisians. Guaranteed thrills!

Montmartre, a neighborhood perched on a hill, has its own atmosphere and scenery, that of artists. While we love getting lost in its winding streets, we especially enjoy sipping a glass of wine while watching passersby. Be sure to keep paper and pen handy, as inspiration is said to abound here!

The Olympia

As the oldest music hall in Paris, the Olympia is one of the most famous performance venues in France. And for good reason, there isn't an artist who doesn't dream of performing there! Concerts, plays, stand-up comedy, and even dance and physical expression shows, there's something for every taste and talent!

The French Comedy

Speaking of talent and institution, the French Comedy, also known as "the French Theatre," was founded in 1680 and has resided since 1799, at the heart of the Palais Royal in Paris, in the Richelieu theater. Here, you will discover plays, both modern and from the past, performed by actors whose performances will leave you amazed.

The Montparnasse Tower

If one can't help but think of the movie of the same name when mentioning the Montparnasse Tower, it's interesting to know that it's entirely possible to visit it without being robbed. Even better, head to the top floor for a yoga class on the terrace or a cocktail at the bar, and enjoy the panoramic view of the city of Paris and its surroundings.

The Buttes-Chaumont Park

The Buttes-Chaumont Park is one of the largest green spaces in Paris. Stretching over a large part of the 19th arrondissement, this hilly park with its original architecture undoubtedly has something magical about it. Whether for an autumn stroll or a summer picnic, the Buttes-Chaumont Park is always a good idea.
