Paris is the second most visited city in the world and the most visited city in Europe! Paris is known as one of Europe's major centres of finance, diplomacy, commerce, fashion, science and arts. Paris is the second most expensive city in the world. Paris is well known for its museums and architectural landmarks: the Louvre was the most visited art museum in the world in 2019, with around 9.6 million visitors.
If it's your first time to Paris, you'll probably want to spend some time at the world-famous Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Notre-Dame, but don't miss out other notable city jewels such as the Musée d'Orsay, the Luxembourg Gardens or Le Marais. There's no way you'll get to do it all – museum-touring, shopping, cemetery-perusing, district-exploring, opera-attending – so plan your own itinerary, group sightseeing nearby attractions together and see Paris on your own terms.

Best Time to Visit Paris:
The best time to visit Paris is from June to October. Both summer and fall have its magic. From June to August the weather in Paris is just about perfect. Average highs are in the high 70s and there are long days of sunshine. Unfortunately, summer is also the most crowded time – and the most expensive. The seasonal foliage is known to stun, though the city's spring blooms are pretty famous too.
