Top Attractions in France

The Eiffel Tower

A trip to France is not complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower, also more affectionately known as the “Iron Lady”. Opened in 1889, this marvel of human ingenuity is 330 metres tall, with the highest accessible floor 276 metres off the ground. From the top of this incredible structure, you can see as far as 85 km away, allowing you to take in from above, some of the amazing sights that Paris has to offer!

Musée du Louvre / The Louvre

The Musée du Louvre, or the Louvre as it is known to English speakers, is another must-see attraction in Paris. One of the largest and most iconic museums in the world, the Louvre was opened in 1793. Since then, it has become home to a number of incredible pieces of art and history, including the Mona Lisa, the Venus de Milo, the Captif Sculptures of Michaelangelo and more! Of course, there’s also the incredible sight of the Louvre itself, including the Pyramide du Louvre, the Palace foundations and the many accessible rooms of the palace itself.

COVID-19 requirements for entry

The nature of COVID-19 is unpredictable and each country has its own entry rules and regulations that are subject to change at a moment's notice. Travellers should always check the COVID-19 entry requirements of their destination before departure. 

Travellers can get the latest information on the French Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs website to find out what they are required to do to enter the country.
