Top Things To Do In Paris - Activities To Do Paris

If there was one way to explain how Paris manages to stay fresh and alive to anyone who visits the city and manages to draw them back, it might have something to do with the sheer number of Paris attractions there are. Some people say that it could take five years to see all the Paris attractions there are; some believe that that would be wildly optimistic. Still, you have to start somewhere. And for some people, that would be a 24-hour layover in Paris. If you've never been here and you just wish to take in as much as you can on the one visit you have, what you basically need is a kind of cheat sheet. Sure, you know you have to hit the Eiffel Tower, catch the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Mona Lisa at the Louvre and climb up the 387 steps of the Notre Dame to be duly awestruck by all the stained glass. Considering that you know how to do all this, what else can you look at in Paris that would be considered essential?

Yes, the Musee du Louvre is the iconic Parisien museum to go to. But if there's just one Museum you have time for, make sure that it's the Musee d'Orsay. Paris isn't just about its ancient history. It also has recent artistic history in the form of its Impressionist art. And this museum has the world's greatest collection of it. Monet's masterworks though are at the Musée de l'Orangerie close by. paris attractions

If modern art is your thing, Paris, the birthplace of the movement, is a veritable shrine to this kind of art. The Centre Pompidou in the 4th Arrondissement is home to the most significant collection of modern art in all of Europe. You'll find Picasso and Matisse masterpieces here; not to mention, the museum itself is such a great work of modern architecture. paris attractions

Paris has something for everyone. If your thing is fashion and not modern art, Paris, the home of modern fashion, has a great deal to offer you even if you're not shopping. The Fondation Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent is a fashion museum right in Yves Saint Laurent's old design studio. You'll see inspiring fashion in galleries everywhere here, including some of YSL's own creations. For those who love arty cinema, the French are world beaters at this. People say that the French go to the cinema more than anyone else in the world - more than even movie-crazy India. Cinémathèque Française is a wonderful museum that's devoted to French cinema. You get to look through displays that take you past the country's cinematic past, and you also get to catch a classic screening.
