Best Things to do in Paris in One Day

Notre Dame Cathedral

1

Start bright and early for your one day Paris itinerary. Visit the beautiful Notre Dame Cathedral in the morning (say around 08:00 am), and then spend 1 to 3 hours in the Île de la Cité area.

Saint Chapelle

2

As you enjoy the morning breeze by the Seine, make your way to Sainte Chapelle, another place of worship – a royal chapel located on the Île de la Cité.

Lunch at the Latin Q

3

From the 4th arrondissement, head to the quaint lanes of the Latin Quarter (located on the 5th). Known as the University quarter, it is home to the Sorbonne University and international restaurants and Parisian cafes (super affordable).

Visit the Louvre Museum

Louvre Museum is one of the world’s most visited museums and it houses the painting of the Mona Lisa. In order to explore all of the museum rooms in a couple of hours, we highly recommend getting tickets in advance – skip the line ticket.

Hit Trocadero & Eiffel Tower

Trocadero is open for 24 hours. And in the evening it is a perfect spot to capture the Eiffel Tower Illuminations. You can see the Eiffel Tower covered in sparkling lights, and every evening it shines for 5 minutes every hour on the hour.

Arc de Triomphe in the evening

From the Eiffel Tower, visit Champs Elysees. Champs Elysees is one of the world’s stunning commercial streets. The boulevard was originally built as a leafy avenue leading to the Arc de Triomphe.
