Stop At: Sainte-Chapelle, 8 Boulevard du Palais, 75001 Paris France

The Sainte-Chapelle also called the Holy Chapel in English is a beautiful Gothic-style church located at the center of Paris, not far from the Cathedral of Notre-Dame. Built in 1238, the chapel is considered as one of the best buildings of Gothic architecture. Sainte-Chapelle was the home of one of the most important relics of Christianity: Christ's Crown of Thorns. Here, you will have the chance to look at its impressive 13th-century stained glass. It is a beautiful piece of art with florid style tracer.

Duration: 30 minutes

Pass By: Pont des Arts, River Seine Between Institut de France And Palais du Louvre, Paris France

If you wish for a wonderful view of the Seine, you will love walking by the Pont des Arts. This pedestrian bridge crosses the Seine river, linking the French Institute to the Louvre Museum. The Pont des Arts will please your romantic side. It has been featured in many films and TV shows thanks to its unique outlook. Indeed, since late 2008 to 2018, the bridge was covered in padlocks, also called love locks. Tourists used to write their name on them before attaching them to the side of the bridge and then throwing the key in the Seine.

Pass By: Louvre Museum, 99 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris France

The next step of this tour is the world's largest art museum. The Louvre Museum is a central landmark of Paris. It is a unique place to walk by thanks to its historical building and its glass pyramid in the center. The museum contains about 460,000 objects and shows 35,000 pieces of arts in eight different areas. Here are shown wonderful items like Mona Lisa or the Vénus de Milo. The Louvre is so rich in knowledge that it would take more than three days to walk through Egyptian, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman antiquities!

Pass By: Jardin des Tuileries pl. de la Concorde, rue de Rivoli, 75058 Paris France

The Tuileries Garden is right behind the Louvre. It was created by the famous Catherine de Medici in the 16th century, and often used as a place of relaxation by the Parisians in the '90s. Today, the garden is also considered as an outdoor gallery. Many pieces of art can be found there as well as the Orangerie museum hosting impressionist paintings from Claude Monet. Famous sculptures like The Kiss or Eve from Auguste Rodin are standing there. The Jeu de Paume is also located in the garden, home of contemporary art.

Pass By: Place de la Concorde, 75008 Paris France

The Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris. Located at the end of the Champ-Elysées, it is a historical place where public executions during the French Revolution happened. Today, it hosts two of the most beautiful fountains of the country. The Maritime Fountain representing the Maritime spirit of France, and the Fountain of the Rivers are located at both sides of Place de la Concorde.

Pass By: Avenue de Champagne, 51200, Epernay France

You will have the chance to walk by one of the most beautiful avenues in the world. The Champs-Elysées is a landmark of the city. It goes from the Triumph Ark to the Place de la Concorde. You will find here luxury shops, cafés, and famous theatres. Many famous buildings are all around this street, like the Grand Palais, The Elysée Palace, or the Théâtre Marigny. During Christmas, the avenue's trees are covered in wonderful illuminations.

Stop At: Grand Palais, 3 avenue du General Eisenhower Avenue Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris France

Just like the Eiffel Tower during the Universal Exposition of 1900, the Grand Palais was supposed to be a temporary site. Thankfully, its beauty has been recognized by the world, and we still can visit it today. It is now an exhibition hall and museum complex. The structure was build in the style of Beaux-Arts architecture. You will love to look at its ornate decoration, stone facades, and large glass vault. The monument hosted many great exhibitions. Nonetheless, the Grand Palais becomes a spacious ice-skating rink during some winters.
