The Louvre was my first stop, and I'm so happy that it was! It really set the standard for what Paris agriculture had to offer and the kind of detail that had been worked into every building. Seeing this huge glass triangle in person is pretty incredible, you really can't take your eyes off of it. Surrounding this glass masterpiece are many other intensely detailed buildings, that really make visiting The Louvre a perfect experience, and I promise you will spend hours taking pictures and get some cool instagrams out of it.
Grande Roue de Paris
Just a pleasant 10 minute walk from The Louvre is a white stoney path with vibrant green tree's either side, with hidden sculptures inside the gardens (which are defiantly worth exploring). When you reach the end of this path you come to a huge fountain with a big white wheel behind, the fountain has deck chair's around the outside so you can sit and enjoy the scenery.
Our lady of Paris! The Notre Dame defiantly did not disappoint, the cathedral is so striking with its gothic features, But it does make you work for it with a lot of steps to climb to get up and close to the her, 100% worth it though! And it gives you a chance to burn off those crossiants. Once you get to the Notre Dame you can read about the history of the building and see the incredible detail, the Windows are very impressive.
I heard about the Luxembourg gardens from a friend and last minute decided to stop of there before getting my flight home, and I am so happy I did! These gardens were so beautifully perfect, with skyscraper like tress and huge manor style building. As it was a nice sunny day when I went there was also a gelato shop which made the visit even more worth it. There was also a fountain with little racing speed boats you could rent and race around the water, unfortunately I didn't have enough time to have a go myself :(. I would recommend visiting Luxembourg before you leave Paris, I hope to go back maybe in autumn time when all the leaves start to change to an amber colour, I imagine It looks pretty amazing.
Oh the Eiffel Tower! the main reason people usually visit Paris, so they can capture that cheesy picture of them holding up the Tower (Don't worry I did not do this). But I must say the Eiffel Tower was by far my favourite tourist spot, I must have spent an hour taking pictures and just chilling near the grass area around it. I visited the Tower twice, once during the day and again in the night, when I first saw it in daylight I didn't expect it to have the amazing detail it had and the size . I was very lucky that my hotel was a 10 minute walk from the Tower so one night I couldn't sleep so I thought why not see the Tower all lit up. WOW. When lit up it really takes your breath away, the Eiffel Tower lights up the whole of Paris and looks so surreal, so make sure you visit the Tower at night time too, however around midnight all the lights go out and the Tower is left in darkness, I'm guessing a huge broadcasting Tower like that runs up an expensive electricity bill.
