Your flight to Paris – Centre of the „Grand Nation“
As soon as you are sitting on the Lufthansa flight to Paris you might start wondering if you will be able to see everything you want to see. But even if you have weeks at your disposal to explore Paris, you will still have a long to-do list for the next visit. Take a look at even the shortest list of world famous must-see monuments: the iconic Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Sacré-Coeur, Versailles, Notre Dame, Panthéon, Pont Neuf, Montmartre, it just never stops.
Getting around in ParisTake the Metro that serves Paris since more than a hundred years to get around in the city. The Porte Dauphine and the Abbesses Station with its Art Nouveau entrances are iconic for the Paris Metro. The Varenne station on line 13 shows replicas of the works of famous sculptor August Rodin. He has his own museum near the station, the Musée Rodin, where his famous works like The Thinker, The Kiss and The Gates of Hell are on display. This is museum is much easier to take in than the massive Louvre, where the most famous painting in the world, the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, is adored by millions every year. You will also find the Venus of Milo, the Code of Hammurabi, paintings by Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Vermeer and other famous masters of art history. Coming early helps to avoid the big crowds.
