Paris remains one of the most beautiful cities in the world, if not the very best by many standards. It is the dream of many people to tour this wonderful city. If you are among the lucky humans who will be able to afford a weekend in Paris, you need to take full advantage of it.

A weekend may not be enough to take in everything Paris has to offer, but it is enough time to see the most important places and engage in the most memorable activities. Here, we will briefly discuss the best things you can do in Paris in a weekend in order to have the time of your life.

Go See the Eiffel Tower

This is a no-brainer. You can’t spend a weekend in Paris without seeing one of the most famous structures in the world. We won’t bother you with what the tower represents, so we go over to the next point.

Climb Arc de Triomphe

Arc de Triomphe may not ring a bell like the Eiffel tower, but it is also a great place to visit. It is one of the best places to view the city from. If you are in the city and cannot afford most tours, climbing the arc will give you satisfactory views.

Visit the Louvre Museum

There are several museums you can visit in Paris, but this is the one you don’t want to miss. From the outside of the museum, you will know you are in for a rich treat. The experience inside is always worth it. 

Visit Notre Dame Cathedral

Probably the most famous cathedral in the world, Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris, is currently closed to tourists due to the tragic fire incident some years ago. This doesn’t mean you can’t admire it from a distance.

Spare a Few Hours for Pigalle and Moulin Rouge

Your weekend tour of Paris will not be complete without visiting the famous red-light districts. You don’t really have to do much here if you are the conservative type. You can admire from the outside or step in for half an hour or less.

A weekend getaway to Paris can be very rewarding. You just need to know the right places to visit, and we have discussed some of the most important ones here.
