Why locals recommend it
I was seven years old when I first discovered this grand art museum and the happiness that comes from studying works from another time. I’m still fascinated by the efforts and sacrifices made by those who collect and preserve over 35,000 works of art—all from different eras that retrace our history! For the sculptural highlights, I suggest beginning in the Caryatides room, which will lead you directly to the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace, two world-famous treasures.

“The Tuileries Garden takes its name from the tile factories that stood where Queen Catherine de Medici had the Tuileries Palace built in 1564, which has since disappeared. The famous king's gardener, André Le Nôtre, gave it from 1664 its current appearance of a French garden. The garden, which separates the Louvre from the Place de la Concorde, is a place for walking and culture for Parisians and tourists where the statues of Maillol rub shoulders with those of Rodin or Giacometti. The two pools are ideal for relaxation. The Orangery Museum in which visitors admire Monet’s works is located southwest of the Tuileries. From March to December, free tours only in French are organized. And for those who love cotton candy, rides and thrills, come to the Fête des Tuileries, from June to August.”

“If you go to the Eiffel Tower you should avoid the elevators (where will have to wait at least one hour) and take the stairs. It is far easier that it seems until the second floor (the third being quite high). Morevoer climbing inside the tower make feel being in the heart of the structure and let you take time to see”

“Step inside the Centre Pompidou to fall under the spell of Picasso, Magritte, Duchamp, Pollock, Warhol and Tinguely! Your kids won’t be bored because there is specials areas for them and my girls even learn to walk in a Dubuffet cave. It open until 11 PM on thursday so it’s a good way to really see art pieces without any head hidden them! Place Georges-Pompidou, Paris – www.centrepompidou.fr * * *”

“The Champs Elysees is one of the most famous streets in the world, so be prepared to come up against a fair few tourists, though you can sidestep the hordes pretty easily by exploring the side streets just off the main drag. For most, it's a mandatory stop, if only to catch a glimpse of the monumental Arc de Triomphe which crowns the avenue and which was commissioned by Napoléon to celebrate the armies of empire. The imposing tree-lined avenue is home to a mix of chain stores and luxury brands which, once passed, will take you down to La Concorde, where you’ll find some nice green areas, the French Government buildings, as well as the Grand Palais - a must-see for art and architecture fans alike. Don't miss Rue Saint Honoré - the epitome of chic Parisian shopping which take you all the way to the hip independent bars and shops of Le Marais.”
