How long do you need to visit Paris?
How many days do you need to visit Paris? Here is the information you need to have an idea of how will be visiting Paris in a few days or in a long time.
You need at least 4 days to visit Paris. Paris is a city full of world-famous attractions and landmarks. 4 days is really the minimum to fully enjoy the city. With 5 or more days you can also visit some of the cities and attractions around Paris. Such as the Palace of Versailles, or Disneyland Paris for example.
Actually, you can visit Paris in fewer days, or for many more days. It all depends on what you want to get out of this trip! Is it your first time and you want to visit the main attractions of Paris and enjoy the city to the fullest? Then I recommend at least 4 days. Are you in Paris just for Disneyland and maybe some hit-and-run attractions? Then 2 or 3 days may be fine.
What to see in Paris in 1 day
Here are the unmissable attractions to visit Paris in just one day. The first one is, of course, the Iron Lady, the Eiffel Tower. It is difficult to imagine an itinerary through Paris without including the most iconic attraction, the symbol of the city.
If you are in Paris for 1 day you can’t miss the Arc de Triomphe! It is the second most iconic attraction of the city. It had been built in 1836 to celebrate the victories of Napoleon Bonaparte.
Since you don’t have so much time, you can enjoy the atmosphere of Paris strolling along the Champs-Élysées. It is one of the most elegant districts of Paris.
Last but not least, if you have a whole free day in Paris, spend it at the Louvre Museum. This way, you will have time to partially (!) visit the most important museum in the world.
