Paris is typically known as a city filled with love and one of the most romantic countries but one of the most fascinating things to do there. This is essentially an underground cemetery that holds around 6 million remains. It is definitely a morbid thing to see but also extremely fascinating.

If you are someone that loves flowers, plants, and gardens you will not want to miss this experience. Jardin du Luxembourg is one of the most beautiful hosts of plant life that I have ever seen. It is filled with rose gardens and orchids and so much more.

3. Place de la Concorde

This one is a piece of history Straight our of The French Revolution. It was originally created in 1772. It’s initial purpose was an execution site, however today it is just known as a piece of history and it’s a one of kind experience to visit.

Bastille is a square in Paris where there tends to be a lot of events and concerts that you can attend. It is a piece of history as it is where the Bastille Prison stood years ago before it was torn down during the French Revolution. Now it is a place that a lot of fun events and celebrations occur.

Other notable streets​ and shopping areas​ include Rue de Passy,​ ​Rue de Rennes, Boulevard Haussmann, ​​Avenue Montaigne,​ ​Avenue des Ternes, Rue Saint Honoré​ ​and​ ​Rue de Rivoli-Le Marais.

  2. Ah, Paris. The City of Love. I hope to some day take the lady to Paris. Great things to do there.

  3. I hope to some day see the Eiffel Tower and the Catacombs. Such a beautiful city!

  4. We were in Paris in July and would you believe that every one of these sites was closed!? Both days we were there! The first because of Bastille Day and the second because they won the World Cup. I feel like we missed out seeing so much on our trip, I really want to go back and try again. Especially the Eiffle Tower and Catacombs. Those were both high on my list of things to knock off my bucket list.

  5. I was able to do everything last year when I went to Paris except for the visit of Luxembourg Garden. I would really love to go back to Paris. It’s really a very special country in my heart.
