Paris, more commonly known as the world’s most romantic city, a fashion hub and a nexus of fine cuisine. Whether you’re going with a loved one, with family, friends or you’re simply on a solo trip; there are tons of things to do, numerous sights to see, and hundreds of things to experience. These are the top 7 things to do in Paris:

Eiffel Tower:

This one is a no-brainer, it’s Paris’ identity, the landmark that comes to mind when we hear the word Paris. The Eiffel Tower is to Paris, what the Statue of Liberty is to New York, it’s what the Big Ben is to London. It took French engineer Gustave Eiffel two years to make this landmark and was finally finished in 1889. It is truly breathtaking at night when the whole tower is highlighted in the sparkling display. The tower does its electric dance for 5 minutes every hour on the hour till 1 am. It offers a beautiful panoramic view of the city and should be on top of the list of things to see in Paris.

The Love Wall:

If you have a soft spot for love, romance and all things mushy then this is the place to see. Its no surprise as Paris is known as the city of love would feature a mural, with “I Love You” written in over a hundred different languages. This makes for an excellent holiday snap and the perfect place to show your love to that special someone. The wall itself is the brainchild of Fredric Baron, who along with artists and calligrapher Claire Kito drew the mural back in the 90s. Today it attracts hundreds, if not thousands of couples and lovers of all things romantic every day where they take the opportunity to show their love for that special someone.
