Top Tourist Attractions In Paris


What are the top tourist attractions in Paris?

…is a question we’ve been asked many times.

We’ve often assumed that it was the usual Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe…

And then we started thinking about it a little more.

Paris is the world’s number one tourist destination, and it’s been estimated that around 30 million visit every year.

Mon Dieu! That’s alot of people!

We were curious to see the ‘official’ facts and statistics. How many millions visit Paris every year? How many tourists head up the Eiffel Tower?

Does the Eiffel Tower come out as #1 on the list of tourist attractions in Paris?


Here are the latest numbers from the Paris Office of Tourism Statistics. Very interesting!
