This might be a hot take, but I’m not the biggest fan of museums when I’m traveling. And it usually has nothing to do with the museum itself, it’s mostly the lines and hoards of people that make them a bit less palatable. Sure, sometimes you just need to go to the Louvre to be disappointed by the Mona Lisa (another hot take?). So, all that said, these are my favorite sights to see in Paris.


This neighborhood in the 18th Arondissiment was at one point home to artists in the late 19th and early 20th century. The likes of Renior, Van Gogh, Picasso, and Monet all lived and worked there at one point. It’s also near the Sacre-Coer, a beautiful cathedral atop the hill.

Catacombs of Paris

This is probably the one item on the list that you’ll find in some guide books and other travel sites. But for good reason. That catacombs are wild and truly unique, very much worth the line I had to wait in, something I don’t say often. By far, one of the best sights in Paris to see while you’re there.

L’Atelier des Lumières

A find from my most recent trip to Paris, L’Atelier des Lumières hosts immersive video/light/music exhibitions. I was lucky enough to visit the Vincent van Gogh exhibit (pictured above), which was incredible. It’s a pretty unique experience, so I would highly recommend taking a look at their schedule when you’re there.

Canal Saint-Martin

Instead of going to a picnic under the Eiffel tower, have your picnic at the Canal Saint-Martin. It’s where all the cool kids go. Or so I’m told.
