– Another main difference is that the Map opens to an online version on Google Maps.
– Both the Map and Pocket guide contain practical info like addresses, opening hours, ticket prices and metro access.
Some of the places in the Paris Attractions Map and Pocket Guide
What is a visit to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower up close? For the best and closest look at this iconic monument, head to the Champ de Mars park. Here, you can take photos of the Eiffel tower from many different angles. On a day with fine weather, you can even sit on the grass and enjoy a picnic with the Tower in your view.
All the way in the hills of Montmartre in the north of the city is the magnificent Sacré-Cœur. Originally, this was built to reassert the Catholic church’s influence during a time when the French society was divided. Today, people consider it one of the most iconic buildings in Paris. Today, it stands tall in the north of the city where one can find sweeping views of Paris. Especially on a fine afternoon, you’ll find a lot of the locals hanging out by the steps with their musical instruments, snacks, and even some drinks as they wait for an epic sunset over Paris.
Père Lachaise Cemetery
It might be strange to cite a cemetery in our Paris Attractions Map but this place is definitely worth a visit! Located in the northeastern part of the city, the Père Lachaise Cemetery is the resting ground of many of the world’s most prominent cultural and artistic figures like singer Edith Piaf, writers Marcel Proust and Oscar Wilde, and musician Jim Morrison. You’ll find how their graves are surrounded by flowers and letters from fans all over the world. The cemetery is huge and you can easily spend an entire afternoon discovering it.
Don’t waste your time checking out all the other cabaret shows in Paris, the Moulin Rouge is an experience you’ll keep talking about even after your trip. Watching the best cabaret show is definitely in our Paris Attractions Map. This is the perfect place to spend the evening as you’ll be entertained by the dances, the costumes and be transported back in time! Tickets start from 77€ for a late night show. For an experience you’ll never forget, we recommend reserving the VIP Dinner + Show. Chef David Le Quellec will prepare your special gourmet dinner and you’ll enjoy it with some champagne as the orchestra serenades you.
Day-trip Recommendation: Château Vaux-le-Vicomte
As a bonus in our Paris Attractions Map, we’ve included a day-trip destination! For something different, skip the crowded Versailles Palace! Instead, we suggest heading southeast of Paris to Château Vaux-le-Vicomte. This is the largest private estate listed as a Historic Monument in France. Apart from this noteworthy fact, the gardens of the chateau were what actually inspired the conception of the famous gardens of Versailles. During your visit, you’ll feel as if you’ve travelled back in time because the entire castle is fully-furnished as if royals still lived there! What’s more is that you get an amazing 360 degree view of the estate from the castle’s dome! If you can make time for their special candlelit evenings, you really should! They light up the château and gardens with 2,000 candles every Saturday evening from May to October. Definitely a sight to behold!
