The City of Lights
Sightseeing is an endless pleasure in Paris, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. All of it is worth seeing and exploring, but there are some Paris tourist attractions that can leave you feeling a little short-changed. The Eiffel Tower is riveting to look at, but frequently overrun with visitors. The Champs Elysées has sold out to a less than paradisal parade of international brands. And the steps of the Sacré-Coeur have been invaded by partying teenagers. Nonetheless, Paris remains arguably the most beautiful city in Europe so it’s probably worth seeing its sights for yourself. The Champs-Elysées, the Seine river banks, Montmartre, the walk from the Louvre to Concorde square through Tuileries are all beautiful. The food markets are ideal for sightseeing and a short walk through the animated and typical districts of Paris. The City Island, with Notre-Dame as a starting point also provides great sightseeing opportunities.
