“A mini Statue of Liberty at the end of a thin island just off the "inception bridge" Pont de Bir Harkim. A nice local place for a stroll nearby with not that many tourists (you will see them take wedding pictures on the bridge itself though).”

“The gardens of the castle don't require any ticket (except when they have shows going on). So you can enter from the side. It's really lovely on a warm day, with a lot of families playing around the canal. I particularly enjoy cycling around (of course you can walk around but that might take you some solid hours!)”

The Basilica of Saint-Denis houses the tombs of every French king since Dagobert, and is the most incredible royal necropolis in the world.

“If this is your first Paris experience, we know there is no way you will miss visiting Eiffel Tower. After all, it is the most famous landmark in the city, and it is the most visited place in France. However, visiting the Eiffel Tower at night is a completely different experience.
