Monument / Landmark
“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”

“Amazing park with winding paths and a beautiful pergola atop the highest point that you can climb up to for a great view. Also two great bars/cafés with outdoor seating. Great place for joggers to run around the lake, and lots of nooks and crannies to discover. Also great for picnics, walks and free morning tai chi classes. ”

Museum
“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 * * *”

Garden
“Majestic park overlooking the Luxembourg Palace. A visit here is most enjoyable at any time of the year. So much to see: the ducks swimming in front of the enormous Medici Fountain, children sending an armada of small boats across the pond, the parade of sculptures of the queens of France, the manicured Palace gardens. Take a seat and enjoy the people-watching! You can also just relax, enjoy a sandwich or read a book (plenty of chairs and benches). To do some jogging this is also a great place! Free entrance.”
