Paris is known as the city of love, but it’s also full of culture, history, fashion, food and, of course, Disneyland. So, no matter how long you have in Paris, it’s difficult to see and experience everything. The best thing you can do is prioritise the sights and attractions by which ones are most important to you. However, there are a few hacks for seeing Paris in all its glory in a small amount of time. Here’s how you can do it.
The Paris Museum Pass
Purchasing a Paris museum pass will give you access to places like, the Louvre, Notre Dame, Versailles Palace and the Rodin Museum. Having the pass with you as you travel means you’ll be able to make quick stops to any of these sites without much planning. So, if you’re exploring somewhere near Notre Dame, you won’t have to miss out on seeing it because it wasn’t part of your plan. This way, you can cram as much history into your trip as possible.
Most people don’t know this, but you can actually get FastPass tickets at Disneyland for free. FastPass means you’re given an allotted time to ride the attractions so you can go away, enjoy the park and return at your given time to get onto the ride within minutes. Disneyland is a big place, and you can certainly waste more than a day there. So, having FastPass tickets will allow you to experience the attractions without having to wait in line for hours each time. If you’re a Disney Hotel guest, you can get a VIP FastPass ticket which entitles you to even more luxuries.
If you’re looking to experience authentic Paris, a quick trip to Le Marais is exactly what you need. Take a stroll through the streets and get transported back to 1900’s Paris. It’s one of the best places to sit down, have a meal and learn how to speak French with the waiters. If you’re a literary lover, you’ll get the chance to see where Victor Hugo lived and what he drew his inspiration from. An afternoon in Le Marais is enough to get the quality you’re looking for, so you’ll have the rest of the day to make other plans.
River Seine Cruise
Going on a cruise through Paris is one of the best ways to see many sights at the same time. It’s difficult to see everything on one trip, so getting on a cruise boat could be a way to tick those sights off your bucket list. Why not take a champagne cruise along the River Seine and relax as you’re guided through the many beauties of Paris? You can often book cruises like this in advance through sites like Travelzoo.
The Eiffel Tower
When you take a trip to Paris, the Eiffel Tower is a must see. But, if you haven’t got a head for heights, you may not want to take part in climbing it with all the other tourists. Wait until the evening and visit the Eiffel Tower lit up instead.
Paris is a magical place to be, no matter what you decide to do.
