The Perfect One Day in Paris Itinerary (How to See Paris in a Day!)

What to do in A Day in Paris: Discover the City of Light

Paris, the city of love, fashion, gastronomy and culture. A city that seems to have been designed for the enjoyment of the senses. But what to do if you only have one day in Paris to immerse yourself in its charm? Although it seems like an impossible mission, I assure you that you can get a good taste of what Paris has to offer in just 24 hours.

Of course, you will need good planning.

What to See in Paris in One Day: Must-See Sightseeing in Paris

Paris is a city with a rich history and culture, and there are many places and monuments worth visiting. Here are some of the most emblematic places you can’t miss on your day trip to Paris.

The Eiffel Tower: An Icon of Paris

The Eiffel Tower, with its impressive iron structure and its height of 330 meters, is an iconic symbol of Paris.

It is beautiful to see it on the horizon but the Eiffel Tower is not only to be admired from afar. Climbing to the top is an experience not to be missed because the panoramic views of the city are breathtaking. However, the lines can be long and time is precious when you only have one day.

The Louvre Museum: A Treasury of Art and Culture

The Louvre Museum is one of the most famous museums in the world and houses a vast collection of art and antiquities.

Here you can find some of the most famous works of art in the world, such as the Mona Lisa and the Venus de Milo. But the Louvre is more than just its works of art. It’s a journey through history, from ancient Mesopotamia to contemporary art.

Notre Dame Cathedral: An Icon of Gothic Architecture

Despite the damage sustained in the 2019 fire, Notre Dame Cathedral remains a must-see stop on any visit to Paris.

This impressive example of Gothic architecture is not only important for its historical and artistic value, but also for its significance to the people of Paris. Although it is not currently possible to visit the interior, the view of Notre Dame from the outside is still an unforgettable experience.

A Seine River Cruise: A Unique Perspective of the City

The Seine River is more than a river, it is one of the arteries that give life to Paris. A cruise on the Seine allows you to see the city from a different perspective.

From the river, you can see some of the most important monuments of Paris, such as the Louvre, Notre Dame and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. In addition, a cruise on the Seine is an experience in itself, an opportunity to relax and enjoy the beauty of Paris from the water.

Tips to Make the Most of Your Day in Paris

Although a day in Paris may seem like a short time, there are some strategies you can follow to make the most of every minute. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your day in Paris:

  • Use public transportation: Paris has an excellent public transportation network that will allow you to move quickly around the city. The metro is a fast and efficient option to move between different points of interest.
  • Wear comfortable shoes: Paris is a city for walking. Many of its charms are discovered by strolling through its streets and squares. Therefore, it is important to wear comfortable shoes.
  • Don’t forget about gastronomy: Food is an essential part of the Parisian experience. Take a break to enjoy a coffee on a terrace, try the famous croissants or let yourself be seduced by French haute cuisine.
  • Enjoy the atmosphere: Paris is more than its monuments. It is its atmosphere, its people, its rhythm of life. Take your time to enjoy the Parisian atmosphere, whether in a park, in a cafe or on a walk along the banks of the Seine.
