What are you going to do?

This scenic walk will take you past one of the world's most famous monuments, the Eiffel Tower, as well as Napoleon's tomb, museums and upscale stores.

 

Of course you can't travel to Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tower. The lines may look discouraging, but you can buy your ticket online and climb the tower stairs to save time. There are even subterranean tours!

 

After a tasty lunch or coffee break, continue toward Les Invalides. This majestic military hospital, commissioned by Louis XIV, is famous for its golden dome, underneath which Napoleon's crypt can be found. The building has over 10 miles of corridors, and is also home to the Musée de l’Armée, ​​and a church that was built for wounded soldiers. Inside the flags for Napoleon's battles still hang on display. The courtyard remains in use as the prime location for important national ceremonies.

 

Stroll over the elegant Champs-Élysées. It starts at Place de la Concorde, with its Egyptian obelisk and, depending on the season, Ferris wheel. From this square you will have an amazing view out over monumental Paris. 

The Champs-Élysées has many upscale and expensive stores, such as Louis Vuitton, as well as larger and more affordable chain stores. 



Nearby the Champs-Élysées there are several other beautiful avenues, including Avenue Montaigne. Together with Avenue George V this forms Le Triangle d’Or ("golden triangle"). At the end of the Champs-Élysées you will find the Arc de Triomphe. It can be reached through the tunnel that runs underneath the busy square.
