As France steadily reignites their tourism industry, famous Parisian sites are now reopening to accommodate every traveler’s bucket list. But of course, for public safety, health protocols are implemented in these tourist spots. So if you’re flying out to see the City of Love this quarter, plan your itinerary accordingly. Below are the details of these 6 must-visit sites:
The Eiffel Tower
You don’t have to look at this iconic landmark from afar anymore. Just put your facemask on and off you go to Eiffel Tower! Oh, just one important reminder: elevators won’t be running, so better work on your cardio to make it to the second-floor viewing platform.
Sailing on the Seine
Aside from seeing the Eiffel Tower, sailing by the river Seine is another must when in Paris. Good thing, boat rides on the Seine is being offered again although dinner rides are still unavailable. Physical distancing will be observed as well as wearing of face masks.
The Louvre Museum
Purchase your tickets online before you fly as only a third of the Lourve’s capacity will be accommodated daily. Visitors must wear facemasks and will be guided through the rooms by batch. Don’t worry, each visitor will have a chance to see that famous “Mona Lisa” smile.
Musée d’Orsay is open to the public again but requires visitors to wear facemasks and book their tickets online. A stop here is worthwhile as the building alone is already impressive and you’ll see masterpieces of Impressionists painters from Monet to Van Gogh exquisitely exhibited.
Palace of Versailles
You’ll lose your head, um, we mean your mind over the intricate details of this massive palace with extravagant gardens, ballrooms, and chambers. Of course, visitors must wear masks throughout the tour and tickets are only available online. However, walks and photo-ops by the gardens at Versailles are free of charge.
Marveling upon this magnificent site is already a religious experience. The Sacré Coeur Basilica stands on the highest hill in Paris and offers the best view for that “sunset over the City of Love” experience. This pilgrimage church is designed with a Neo-Byzantine style and is now open for visitors. Just observe the Catholic church dress code with this season’s ultimate accessory–facemask, of course!
Highly recommended for the kids and kids-at-heart. Add a magical exclamation to your visit to Paris by spending a day at Disneyland. Tickets are being sold online and visitors aged 11 and over must wear a facemask. Unfortunately, hugging Mickey, Donald, and your favorite princesses are not allowed, but photos with them are. Nevertheless, we are sure you’ll have a splendid time in the happiest place in Paris!
