Paris is one of the most fascinating and visited cities in the world and not only does it have some of the most famous attractions but also a magical aura and a millenary tradition that have made it a favourite place for artists, so as soon as you visit you will be amazed by all its beauty and the wide range of activities it offers for tourists.
From the Eiffel Tower to the Opéra Garnier, from the Arc de Triomphe to the Moulin Rouge and from the Pompidou Centre to the Catacombs of Paris, you'll be able to see the city in all its splendour, although there's so much to see that you won't have time to be distracted. So here's your definitive guide to the best tickets to make the most of your trip to the French capital.
1. Eiffel Tower tickets
You can't visit Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower, which is the city's most iconic monument and one of the most famous in the world. During your visit, you'll be able to reach the first floor of the tower, which you'll reach by walking up its 674 steps. From there you will have some of the best views of the city, especially of the buildings on the Ile de France, including Notre Dame Cathedral.
On all tower experiences, when you book your ticket you can also choose to be accompanied at extra cost by a tour guide who will tell you about the history of this icon, which has been intimately linked to the city since it was built in 1889. Once you reach the first floor you'll have free time to enjoy the panoramic views and take some of the best photographs, before returning to base for a 15-20 minute tour.
2. Tickets for the Louvre Museum
The Louvre is one of the largest, most famous and most visited museums in the world, so you can't miss it during your tour of Paris. Bear in mind that, due to its size, it can be overwhelming and that every minute counts, so it is ideal to opt for fast-track entry without queues. Among its best works are the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo and the Victory of Samothrace.
This museum also stands out for the different rooms surrounding the main attractions, where you can discover another 35,000 objects from all over the world, including sculptures, paintings, engravings and bronze works. The best way to fully enjoy the museum is to visit early in the morning, which is when it receives the fewest visitors and when the museum's most famous halls are the clearest.
3. Tickets for the Arc de Triomphe in Paris
The Arc de Triomphe was, until the construction of the Eiffel Tower in 1889, the most famous attraction in Paris, and since the iron monument became the emblem of the city, the arch has become the second most visited attraction. From its terrace you can take in the Parisian skyline and discover some of the best panoramic views, especially during the summer months or on clear days.
The Arc de Triomphe is 50 metres high, which is not too high, but surrounded by greenery it is an ideal setting for you to take some of the best photographs of Paris. It also houses an art exhibition at the top, which traces the history of the memorial building from its construction in 1836 to the present day, which you can tour with your tickets. To get to the rooftop you'll have to walk up 284 steps.
4. Tickets for the Moulin Rouge with dinner
The Moulin Rouge, located on the Boulevard de Clichy, one of the most bohemian areas of Paris, is the most famous cabaret in France and has been famous for its shows, food and drinks for over 100 years. Champagne is one of the options, so the best alternative to discover it is to buy your ticket for a show with dinner included that will transport you to the end of the 19th century among feathers, sequins and the glitter of the dancers.
At the Moulin Rouge you can discover one of the city's icons, where Edith Piaf, Franck Sinatra and Elton John, among other great artists , have performed. This is also one of the best places to experience the nightlife of Paris, which is famous for its themed shows and dance club shows. Are you up for a trip back in time during an evening of vaudeville?
5. Tickets for the Panthéon de Paris
The Panthéon de Paris, located in the heart of the Latin Quarter, is one of the buildings that preserves the memory of France. In this neoclassical church you can visit the underground crypt that contains the tombs of Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Marie Curie, Louis Braille and Emile Zola, among other great French personalities. You can also marvel at the architecture of the building and the open views from the top floor.
The Pantheon in Paris will be familiar to you, as it is inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, although it has a larger dome, the interior is better preserved and you can also access the top of the building, something that is forbidden in the building in the Italian capital in order to favour the conservation of the structure. This is one of the most visited sites in the city, so I recommend that you opt for priority tickets.
6. Tickets for the Palace of Versailles
Versailles is one of the most famous palaces in the world and much of its fame is due to the beauty of its architecture and the size of its imposing gardens, which have made it a Unesco World Heritage Site, so it is well worth taking a short trip north of Paris to see it. Once inside, you can also visit the exhibition of its art collection and its main galleries.
The most famous of its galleries is the Hall of Mirrors, which is over 70 metres long and, in addition to its Baroque structure, is known for having been the site of the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, which put an end to the First World War. Note that tickets to the palace allow you to stroll through the gardens, but during various dates between April and October they are closed.
7. Tickets for the Pompidou Centre in Paris
The Pompidou Centre is the kilometre 0 of the art and culture circuit in Paris and also one of the most modern and famous buildings of the 20th century. Its façade and exterior decoration, built entirely in a tubular format, is reminiscent of the architectural avant-garde, which is why it houses one of the largest collections of modern and contemporary art in the world, including works by Picasso, Man Ray, Francis Bacon and Kandinsky.
In the Pompidou Centre, as in other parts of the city, you will also have access to the terrace to discover the Parisian skyline with its most emblematic buildings. If you are planning to visit the French capital with children, at the top of the Pompidou you will also find the Children's Gallery, which offers children's activities. Book your tickets early as they sell out fast.
8. Tickets for the Sainte Chapelle and the Conciergerie
Notre Dame Cathedral is the most famous religious building in Paris, but for many the most beautiful church building is opposite and that is Sainte Chapelle, the Gothic temple with its chrome-plated stained glass windows and endless ceilings that will take you back to medieval France. Its imposing architecture made it not only a huge reliquary but also the home of the royalty who ruled the country with an iron fist in the Middle Ages.
In the Sainte Chapelle you can visit the lower chapel and the upper chapel, but you will marvel at the stained glass windows and the colourful rose window that crowns the entrance door and represents various passages from the Bible, including Genesis, Exodus, the Passion and the Apocalypse.
The Sainte Chapelle building is also home to the Conciergerie, a historic building that occupies the Quai de l'Horlogerie, right next to the royal chapel, and which has a rich history, as during the French Revolution it housed the bloodiest prison in Paris.
9. Tickets for Les Invalides
The Invalides complex is a memorial building built in the 16th century where you can find the Army Museum of Paris. This exhibition is world famous because it houses the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte, making it one of the most visited sites in France and Europe by tourists. The best alternative is to visit early in the morning to avoid the long queues.
Among the exhibits in the complex you will find a large number of catalogued objects, including tools and armour, and one of the largest displays of firearms in France. In addition, with these tickets you will have an immersive experience through the bloodiest battles in the history of France, in which you can learn about the daily life of a soldier in the war in each of the conflicts.
10. Tickets for the Montparnasse Tower
The Montparnasse Tower is one of the tallest towers in France and since its construction in 1972 it has generated controversy among the French, who complained that the modernist building clashed with the stately Parisian skyline. However, since its inauguration the tower has become one of the most visited attractions and it is largely because from its 210-metre height you can access the best views of the capital. Book your tickets online to avoid unnecessary waiting.
From the panoramic terrace on the 56th floor and from the observatory on the 59th floor you can see the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and the 2-kilometre-long Avenue des Champs Elysées. You can also have a coffee or a cocktail at the top while you enjoy the view, and thanks to its long opening hours you can watch the sunset from there, an ideal experience for the summer months.
11. Tickets for the Opéra Garnier
The Opera Garnier building is one of the most representative of Parisian architecture, because not only does its façade reflect the opulence of French engineering and the style of its designs, but also because it is the cathedral of lyric art, music and dance that has characterised Paris, especially since the 19th century. If, apart from the tickets to visit the building, you decide to attend a show, you will also be able to see the gilded details and mosaics inside.
Inside the main theatre you can discover the red velvet seats in the auditorium, the ceiling crowned by Marc Chagall's frescoes, and if you opt for a guided tour before the show, you can learn the most fascinating stories. Among them, of course, is that of the Phantom of the Opera, the mysterious spectre that terrorises the audience at every performance in order to win the heart of a young vocalist.
12. Tickets for the Saint-Denis Basilica
If you're a French history buff then you can't miss a visit to the Saint-Denis Basilica, which is not only considered the first Gothic cathedral in the world but also houses the tombs of over 70 French kings and public servants, making it the main crypt of France's royalty. I recommend that you visit this site with a skip-the-line ticket.
The most popular crypt in Saint-Denis is that of Marie-Antoinette of Austria, although you can also visit the largest collection of funerary sculptures in the country, a large number of statues and monumental tombs from the Renaissance. All this can be found in the beautiful building of the basilica in the heart of the troubled Saint-Denis district, which was at the centre of the French May 1968 riots.
13. Tickets for the Musée d'Orsay
The Louvre is the most famous museum in Paris and the Pompidou the largest, but the Orsay is also noted for its exhibits, which are the most important impressionist and post-impressionist in Europe. This museum is located in an old train station, so in addition to its exhibits you will be surprised by the architecture of the building, and in addition to the paintings you can also visit the sculpture room.
Among the works of art that you can see at the Orsay are Lunch on the Grass by Edouard Manet, the Dance at the Moulin de la Galette by Auguste Renoir and the Portrait of the Artist by Vincent van Gogh, as well as paintings by Edgar Degas, Jean-Francois Millet, Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin, which make this museum one of the must-see in the French capital.
14. Tickets for Disneyland Paris in 1 day
If you want to opt for an alternative plan in Paris or you are planning to visit the French capital with children, you can visit Disneyland in 1 day, with tickets that will allow you to access the two main sites of the complex, the Disneyland Park and the Walt Disney Studios. In these parks you will come across the company's most prominent characters, such as Pinocchio, Peter Pan and Spider-Man, and you will also get to know the Marvel, Star Wars and Pixar universe.
Other attractions you can visit are the Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean theme parks, in a complex located just outside Paris and easily accessible, so you can visit at least two parks in a 1-day visit, so as not to take time away from the rest of the city's main sites.
15. Night tickets for the Eiffel Tower
While the best option to discover the Eiffel Tower is during a daytime visit, if you are one of those who prefer to have a panoramic view of the city at night, you can opt for these tickets to discover the main monument of the Parisian capital during the night. This is an activity that lasts approximately 2 hours and will take you from the base of the tower to the top to discover one of the wonders of the modern world.
During your visit you will be accompanied by an audio guide in different languages and from the first floor of the tower you will discover one of the most beautiful open views of Paris, especially during the summer months when the sky is clear and the weather is usually warm.
16. Tickets for a cruise on the Seine River and the Louvre Museum
One of the best ways to see a different side of Paris is from the Seine River, which is the main tributary of the city and also one of the most famous in the world. In the French capital you will find many options to take a boat ride on the tributary and many of them also include access to other attractions, as in this case that in addition to the boat ride also offer entry to the Louvre Museum.
During the boat trip you'll get a panoramic view of the Eiffel Tower, the Alexander III Bridge, Notre Damme Cathedral and the Musée d'Orsay, and once the trip is over you'll visit the Louvre, where you'll discover some of the world's most famous works of art. These include Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo.
You'll also be drawn to the Crystal Pyramid, as the Louvre also has one of the most beautiful architectural designs in Europe.
17. Tickets for the Catacombs of Paris
Paris is the city of lights but it also has a dark side, which you can discover on a tour of the city's Catacombs, which will take you through the underground layout built in 1788 to house the skeletal remains of more than 6 million people who were scattered throughout the French capital's many cemeteries since Roman times.
You can tour this underworld built in an ancient limestone quarry on your own or with the assistance of an audio guide available in several languages, but you can't miss this tour of one of Paris's spookiest sites, which will take you more than 100 steps below the city limits.
18. Tickets for a cruise on the Seine and the Eiffel Tower
One of the most popular excursions in Paris is a cruise on the Seine River and these are often accompanied by tickets for other attractions, such as the Eiffel Tower, so these activities give you a glimpse of the city skyline from France's most famous tributary and then visit the Iron Lady, the capital's most iconic monument.
From the Seine you can discover a magical panorama of the Musée d'Orsay, Notre Damme Cathedral and the Alexander III Bridge, and then you can also climb to the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, which has been the emblem of Paris since it was built in 1889 and an omniscient witness to all the capital's historical events.
19. Tickets for the Banksy exhibition
Banksy is the world's most famous and influential global street artist and in Paris you can visit the permanent exhibition The World of Banksy. This exhibition is not centralised in any one gallery but consists of an open tour of the enigmatic author 's works in the city and a review recreated by other artists of his most famous works.
In these murals and stencils you can see Banksy's works in Paris, but also replicas of more than 100 of his works around the world, which deal with social criticism, the contradictions of the world, care for the environment and also a merciless vision of technological advances and the gentrification of cities. If you want to visit an alternative art exhibition, these tickets are definitely not to be missed.
20. Tickets for the Rodin Museum
Auguste Rodin was the most famous French sculptor in history and is the author of one of the most outstanding works of modern sculpture, The Thinker, and in Paris you can visit his museum.

With tickets to this museum you can see the author's private collection and tour the exhibition on your own or with the assistance of an audio guide available in several languages. You can also relax in the gardens of the building and access additional information in the information rooms attached to the building.
21. Tickets for the Picasso Museum
Pablo Picasso was one of the prodigal sons of Spanish art, but throughout his life he formed a very strong bond with France, so much so that the largest collection of his work is currently housed in the Picasso Museum in Paris. This exhibition is divided into 30 rooms with more than 5,000 works by the painter and sculptor from Malaga, as well as other works by outstanding artists such as Cézanne, Degas and Matisse.
During the visit you can enter the Hotel Salé, the mansion in the Marais district that contains the Picasso exhibits and includes immersive activities to discover the life of the painter, who was famous for Guernica, among other works.

Don't miss out on tickets to this must-see museum in the Parisian capital.
22. Tickets for the Aquarium
If you are planning to visit Paris with children, one of the best things to do is to visit the Aquarium, which is one of the oldest marine animal sanctuaries in the world and also home to over 13,000 aquatic animals.

At the Paris Aquarium, in addition to the exhibits, you can also enjoy Cinéaqua, which is a 4D recreation of the oceans of Tahiti and New Caledonia which in a natural context form the habitat of multicoloured fish and immense coral reefs. Finally, your tickets will also give you the chance to interact with some of the animals in the aquarium.

Paris is the city of cabarets and while the Moulin Rouge is the most prominent, you can also find other options with alternative shows. One of the best known is the Crazy Horse, which offers a popular show fronted by the Belgian duo Bangable and Lolly Wish, which is reminiscent of a staging that has been repeated for more than 70 years, when the cabaret first opened.
During your visit you can choose from several options, some of which include only tickets to the show and others also dinner and drinks, most of which consist of champagne drinks. Please note that these shows are suitable for the whole family, but children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
24. Cabaret Paradis Latin tickets
If you want to enjoy a soft erotic show during your visit to Paris then you can choose the shows at the Cabaret Paradis Latin, which is located in the heart of the Latin Quarter and offers a Parisian style show of cancan dancing, singing and acrobatics. This building was renovated by Gustave Eiffel while he was building the city's famous tower that now bears his name.
As in the rest of the city's cabarets, you can choose to buy tickets for the show only or include dinner and drinks. In any case, I recommend that you don't miss the oldest cabaret in the world, which is regarded as the cradle of variety theatre.
25. Tickets for the Grevin Wax Museum
