Things to do in Paris

Walk along the Seine to the legendary Eiffel Tower, modern art museum Palais de Tokyo and Cité de l'Architecture museum. After visiting the Louvre gallery, cross the river for Impressionist paintings in the Musée d'Orsay and sculpture in the Musée Rodin. On Île de la Cité see medieval stained-glass in the Sainte-Chapelle, or head south to Denfert Rochereau to walk eerie, bone-lined tunnels in the Catacombes. Most museums open 10am-6pm and close Monday or Tuesday.
