Things to do in Paris
The Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower: the landmark calling card of Paris. Built in 1889 in conjunction with Paris’ hosting of the World’s Fair, the tower’s design is a nod to the centennial of the French Revolution. Paris’ residents originally loathed this wrought-iron structure - there were even protests against its construction - however the Eiffel Tower is now, perhaps, the undisputed symbol of Paris. So it is little surprise that it is visited by more than 6 million travellers every year. Some choose to climb to the tower’s top, while others opt for the more leisurely route and take the elevator.
Paris is famous for its architectural splendour and Palais Garnier definitely deserves its place as one of the city’s most beautiful structures. The theatre served as the inspiration for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and visitors are invited inside this incredible building to wander between its grand spaces, the auditorium, and the lavish galleries.
When you’re looking for a respite in between landmark-hopping, make for the Luxembourg Gardens. Located in the 6th arrondissement, the gardens were once exclusive territory of the Luxembourg Palace. Thankfully, the gardens are now open to the public and offer more than 60 acres of impeccably manicured green space - including gardens, lawn, pebbled paths, basket and baseball courts.
When is the Best Time to Visit Paris?
Put simply, Paris can become packed during peak season - typically from June to October. The weather during this time is wonderful, however travellers may need to contend with queues and crowds while sightseeing. Winter in Paris is a romantic prospect and a return flight from Melbourne to Paris for this time will reward with quieter streets and magical festive atmospheres. Just remember to pack some warm clothes.
