Family Travel Guide | Paris
On the banks of the river Seine in northern France, Paris attracts 42 million visitors a year, making it the most visited city in the world.
Parisians come to eat, drink, shop, enjoy the theater and celebrate life on the grande avenue which starts at the beginning of the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs-Élysées and runs along the Historic Axis. It merges into the largest square in Paris, the Place de la Concorde.
A short stroll away is the world’s most visited museum, the Musée du Louvre, and modern art at the Centre Pompidou. The neighborhood of Montmartre, with its winding streets, was once home to Picasso, Dali and Van Gogh
There’s no more famous Parisian icon than the Eiffel Tower, which can be seen from all over the city. Other unmissable landmarks include the Notre Dame Cathedral and gleaming white Sacré-Cœur Basilica.
The city’s many attractions are never far apart, and in between visitors can enjoy a serene stroll through picture-postcard streets of Paris.
