Visiting Paris: Six top attractions | Private jet charter

Paris is one of the world’s most beautiful cities and attracts tourists in their millions. From iconic landmarks, quaint streets, beautiful parks and gardens, world-class restaurant scene, superb shopping and an eclectic nightlife, Paris has it all.

The Louvre

Undoubtedly one of the world’s most famous art museums, the Louvre has an extraordinary collection of paintings and artefacts, including the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. The priceless art and antiquities on show need at least a few hours to fully appreciate. Take respite from the crowds in the delightful grounds and admire the famous glass pyramid.

Eiffel Tower

The most iconic landmark in Paris, the Eiffel Tower, was created by Gustav Eiffel and was planned to be a temporary exhibit. Fortunately this stunning 108-storied masterpiece had a reprieve and now attracts more than 7 million visitors a year. Travel to all three platforms via the lifts and enjoy panoramic views of the French capital. There’s a restaurant and a shop on the first floor. We recommend you book online well in advance, and enjoy the gardens below after your climb.

Moulin Rouge

The iconic Moulin Rouge cabaret has been entertaining audiences since the 1900s. Founded by Charles Zidler and Joseph Oller in 1889, the spectacular show will be one of your best memories of Paris.

Notre Dame

The cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris is a popular landmark and an outstanding example of Gothic architecture. Located on the Isle de La Cité, work began on its construction in the 1160 and was completed a hundred years later. Inside the highlights include the stained glass windows and magnificent organ.

Catacombs of Paris

The Catacombs of Paris are located in the 18th, near Denfert-Rochereau metro and constructed out of former quarries. Buy your ticket online in advance to avoid long queues and wear sturdy shoes: you’ll be descending around 200 stairs to reach the remains of some six million Parisians.

Montmartre

Always a popular tourist attraction, this leafy enclave high above Paris near the Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) may cater more to tourists than the artists that used to frequent the cafes and bars, but the eclectic and multi-cultural atmosphere remains. Take the funicular to the Sacré-Coeur – one of the most beautiful churches in the world – and gaze across Paris from its buttresses.
