Top 5 Attractions in Paris

Eiffel Tower

Eiffel Tower is one of the best-known landmarks in Paris.   Take the elevator to top of the tower. (The stairs will only take you up to the middle level.) The aerial views of the river Seine and Paris are spectacular.

Buy entry tickets early and avoid the long queues. But do not be disheartened if you are not successful in getting tickets on the internet. You may still be able to grab tickets from the ticket counters.

Eiffel Tower is illuminated at night. So that could be the best time to go there. The Tower has two restaurants. The Champagne Bar serves rose or white champagne.

Notre Dame Cathedral

The cathedral is open daily, from 8:00 am to 6:45 pm. There is no entry fee. But the Cathedral Tower has entrance fees. We did not go up the tower because we would have to climb nearly 400 steps to the top.

Stained Glass Window

It was drizzling when we visited the cathedral. We did not have to wait in long queues to enter. Inside there are many beautiful stained glass windows. Flash photography is not allowed, so I had to stick to wide apertures on my camera lens.
