Walk Through The Catacombs of Paris
The Catacombs of Paris is an incredible underground tomb the size of 11,000m2 and filled with skulls and bones of the deceased. It is a really interesting place to visit and great way to get some knowledge of the history of Paris. The Catacombs of Paris should definitely be the first thing on your list for the day. It gets incredibly busy and the queue can go on for hours, so I suggest getting there for opening time (if not before) to ensure you won’t miss out.
Next Stop, Coffee Shop
With countless gorgeous coffee shops all around the city, you are completely spoilt for choice. A MUST DO during your visit to Paris, is to try some of the delicious French bread and pastries. Many cafes will cater for gluten free and vegan requirements, but check their website and/or socials first.
Visit the Arc de Triomphe
The Arc De Triomph is a very popular tourist spot, so don’t be surprised if it gets very crowded. The beautiful monument also has an observation deck, so be sure to grab a ticket and catch an amazing view over Paris and even the Eiffel Tower.
Admire the Artwork in The Louvre
The Louvre is a beautiful building containing some interesting and quite beautiful artwork. If you’re not that much of an art lover, the building itself is beautiful and so it is still worth the journey. There are plenty of coffee shops nearby too, if you need a top up!
Grab a Bite
Whilst in Paris, why not try a traditional French dinner in one of many fabulous restaurants dotted around the city?! The French as famous for so many different staple meals and ingredients, so why not jump out of your comfort zone and try a few?
Soar 276 Meters High to Watch the Sunset
The best time to visit the Eiffel Tower is during sunset, which also makes a perfect end to a perfect day. See the sky turn red over the beautiful city. You can see for miles! There are two floors with beautiful views, lovely restaurants and shops to explore. Head all the up to the top for the best (and most windy) views.
Watch the Eiffel Tower Sparkle
Cross the Pont d’lena Bridge and find a spot in Trocadéro Gardens to enjoy the beautiful view of the Eiffel Tower sparkle as the sky turns black. This is a really romantic spot if you’re exploring as a couple.

One thought on “How to Spend A Day in Paris”
What a whirlwind of a day in Paris! I’m surprised you can squeeze in both the Catacombs and the Louvre, as those can take at least half a day to cover each. I’d also suggest a quick stop at the Sacré Coeur if time permits. Thanks for this post!
