    Discover Paris from its heightsMairie de Paris/François Grunberg

    From the Eiffel Tower to the heights of Buttes Chaumont Park, contemplate Paris from a different angle. It is an original way of discovering the capital. This is our selection of unmissable heights!


    The Eiffel TowerFlickr - danorbit

    The Tower, which was built by the engineer Gustave Eiffel for the Universal Exhibition of 1889, comprises three floors and is 317 metres high. On top are radio and television transmitters serving Paris. The lift machinery located below ground level in the west and east pillars was installed in 1899, and is strangely reminiscent of the imaginary world of Jules Verne.


    The covered passages in ParisMairie de Paris/S. Robichon

    The covered passages developed in the capital over a period of only sixty years or so, between the late 18th century and the mid-19th century. Each passage has its own special character but they have one thing in common: they are all private roads.

Museums and theatres

The choice is famously vast. Théâtre du Châtelet and the national theatres are a few of the best-known ones, but don’t miss the smaller gems – or the choice of plays to elate a more junior audience. The Louvre, Musée d’Orsay, Centre Pompidou and Musée des Arts Premiers are a few of the obvious choices, but don’t miss Victor Hugo’s house, Musée Balzac, the Musée d’Art Moderne, the famous Catacombes, or the 10 other City of Paris museums.
