From the numerous sights and sounds to the attractions around every corner, you would certainly be hard-pressed to find someone who had nothing to do while in Paris.
Sports fans traveling to Paris may think that there is nothing there for them, but how wrong they are. The city is home to Roland Garros, the site of the annual French Open tennis tournament. This venue houses some of the most unique tennis courts in the world, as their red clay has made them an icon of the sport. If you're lucky enough be there in time for the tournament, be sure to check out a match or two, it certainly be an experience you won’t' soon forget.
While the French Open is certainly a large draw, the city may be best known for its plentiful tourist attractions, perhaps most notably the Eiffel Tower. Constructed in 1889, this beautiful structure is instantly recognizable the world over and stands at an impressive 1,063, making it the largest structure in the world until 1930.
After the Eiffel Tower, art enthusiasts will definitely want to take a leisurely stroll throughout the Louvre, one of the most famous art museums in the world. This beautiful and historic building houses a stunning amount of artwork and is regularly the most attended art museum in the world. But it's no surprise why since it is tasked with housing pieces from all parts of history, and is also the home of the Mona Lisa.
As for the performing arts scene? Paris has got that covered too. The Palais Garnier is the city's most famous opera house and even if you are not a huge opera fan, sitting among 1,600 other patrons will certainly be an experience to remember. The Théâtre Mogador is also a must-see as it is nearly 100 years old and still hosts shows including The Lion King and Mama Mia.
Those who visit Paris almost always long to go back, and it's not hard to understand why. Just take a stroll down the Champs-Elysées and you'll quickly see for yourself.
