Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

7. Mont-Saint-Michel Abbey Ticket & Self-Guided Tour

Discover one of the world's first UNESCO World Heritage Sites with a visit to Mont-Saint-Michel abbey. Explore the site with a self-guided tour aided by an information booklet and learn the fascinating history of the site entirely at your own pace. The worship of Saint Michel was introduced on the holy mount in 708 and it became one of the most important places of medieval pilgrimage. Benedictine Monks began building an abbey here in the 10th century.   The abbey has withstood the assaults of man, time, and the elements. The heroic resistance of the mount to English attacks during the Hundred Years’ War (14th and 15th centuries) made it a symbol of French national identity.  Monks left the abbey in 1790 and it was listed as a historic monument in 1874. The whole site has been returned to its former glory thanks to ongoing restoration work.

Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

10. Paris: Skip-the-Line Arc de Triomphe Rooftop Tickets

The Arc de Triomphe is a Neoclassical take on the ancient Roman triumphal arch style. Fifty meters tall, the view from the platform atop the arch is well worth the hike. See the dozen Parisian avenues radiating out from the arch into the City of Light. Paris is one of the most fascinating places in the world and you will find yourself right at its center. Inspired by the great arches of ancient Rome, Napoleon commissioned the Arc de Triomphe shortly after his victory at Austerlitz. Unfortunately, he never lived to see its completion. At the base of the arch, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier pays tribute to the 1.3 million French soldiers who died in World War I. Behold the eternal flame that is rekindled at 6.30 PM each evening. In addition, there is a must-see exhibition which explains the symbolic importance of this monument. The view from the top of the arch is worth climbing the 284 stairs. From your privileged position, survey all of Paris. Unlike the obligatory Eiffel Tower trip, getting into the Arc de Triomphe is an effort not all tourists undertake. Plus, with skip-the-line tickets, you'll hardly have to break stride on your way in. From 18 September to 4 October, discover L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped project, a work that Christo wished to be continued after his death.

The Arc de Triomphe remains open to a limited number of people who will be able to access the rooftop, be at the heart of the work of art, walk on the fabric that will also cover the floor, and enjoy the panoramic view. Come and share this unforgettable moment, with a reserved time slot to enter the monument.

Whether you are visiting France for the first or twentieth time, it's easy to find something new and exciting to do. Because Paris is the most visited city in the world, there are countless tours already set up for you! You don't have to do any of the legwork before you go. If it is your first visit, start with a walking, bike, or bus tour to get an introduction to the highlights of the city. Because there is so much to do in Paris, this will help you decide on what you'd prefer to focus your time.

More specialized tours, such as those of the Louvre or the Eiffel Tower, will help you appreciate these famous sights to their fullest. In addition, you will have the opportunity to skip the long lines at the entrance! This is especially advantageous if you have limited time in the city. Finally, end your visit with a boat cruise along the Seine at night. It's a magical way to end a trip in the City of Lights.

If you've been to Paris before or have more time, consider a day trip outside the city. You can take an all-day tour out to the D-Day Beaches of Normandy for a lovely break from city life. If you have less time on your hands, consider a short jaunt out to the Palace of Versailles. While the grounds and palace are beautiful in their own right, a guided tour can make the past come alive as stories of royalty are revealed. If you have even more time or are considering another trip, go south to Provence. The luscious lavender fields and local wine will leave you sighing in contentment.

Whatever your pleasure, know that you don't have to plan your entire trip. Instead, let France take you by the hand. You'll fall in love.
