Admission is free, of course, but if you want to climb up the towers, it will cost about 6€.

Masses: 8:00, 9:00, noon, 18:45.

 
Les Champs-Elysées et l'Arc de Triomphe

Only the section from the Champs Elysees from the Place de la Concorde to the Grand Palace deserves its nickname of "most beautiful avenue in the world". The rest of the avenue is lined with shops and restaurants often too expensive. Try the side streets. Do not forget to visit the "Arc de Triomphe" at the top of the avenue, built in the mid-eighteenth century to commemorate Napoleon's victories. Admission is about 6€, free for children under 12 years. Hours: 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily from April to October, and 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. every day from November to March.

 
Montmartre et la Basilique du Sacré Coeur

The Romano-Byzantine basilica crowns the Montmartre hill. Began in 1875 and construction was completed in 1914. Admission is free, but access to the crypt and dome is fee required (about 5€). To keep your energy, you can take the funicular a kind of funny little tram with a single wagon. From the Anvers metro station, start to climb the hill to Rue Tardieu. The funicular station is located there. Until the 19th century, Montmartre was a village located outside the fortifications of Paris. The film "Amelie Poulain" gives you an overview of the place that, absolutely, must be visited, just because there is no less than 7 museums!

 

Eglise des Invalides

The Hospice of the Invalides building started in 1671 by order of Louis XIV, who wanted to house the impoverished soldiers and wounded veterans of his many wars. The work was completed quickly, and a church was built just nearby. The work took a total of thirty years. You can visit the church, several museums and the tomb of Napoleon 1st , whose body was returned to St Helena in 1830. Admission is 6€, and free for children under 12 years. Opening hours: October to March 31, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. from April to September 30 from 10:00 to 17:45.

 
Saint Germain des Prés / Quartier Latin

This area, whose history is intimately linked to the cultural and artistic life of our capital, is bounded on the north by the "Quai Malaquais" and on the south by the "Rue du Four". To the west, the "Rue des Saint-Pères" is on the border with the 7th arrondissement and the "Rue de Seine" is at the crossroads of the famous neighborhoods "La Monnaie" and "L'Odeon". This area is both a strategic location for cultural life in Paris where artists' studios, libraries and museums are plentiful, and a fashionable place where celebrities must be seen.

 
Place des Vosges

It's Henry IV who ordered the construction of the famous place, which was completed in 1612, two years after the assassination of the Gascon by Ravaillac. Initially named 'Royal Square', it was renamed "Place des Vosges" by Napoleon 1st, who would thus pay homage to the inhabitants of the Vosges for their quickness to pay their taxes. The square is famous for its style (it is lined with 36 buildings dating from its construction) and by the bording shops and its little park in the center of which stands the statue of Louis XIII.
