If you're a first time visitor to France, you might prefer a more touristy area, but if you're a solo traveler, a local neighborhood could be more interesting.

Here are some of the most recommended attractions in France.
Here's what Trippy members had to say about attractions:
"I would assume that you "could be" interested in some of the "gotta see sitez" like Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral, Sacre Coeur Basilica, perhaps even Versailles - Chateau right?" See More
"We stayed in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Latin Quarter was close to everything you want to see, such as Luxembourg Garden, Musée d'Orsay, Notre Dame, The Louvre, took Uber to Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur Basilica, L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile (great shopping in this area), wife especially like the Louis Vuitton store." See More
"I agree with Lorraine and would like to add that you should take some time to explore the neighbourghoods like Montmartre, and not only see the Sacre Coeur Basilica." See More
"Try to get to the Quartier Du Marais district-great shops, street art, restaurants and cafes-on Sundays is closed to traffic and is especially vibrant." See More
"Paris though: the Louvre Museum is amazing, but I love the Musee d'Orsay, which houses the largest collection of Impressionist art in the world within a fabulous former railway station building." See More
"The Notre-Dame de Paris and a walk through the Latin Quarter is another must-do/must see thing in the French capital." See More
"See the Notre Dame Cathedral, The Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay; on a sunny day, go to the Sacré-Cœur Basilica & go to the Place du Tertre (to see the artists painting the Basilica); walk up the Champs-Élysées to the Arc de Triomphe; walk around the Luxembourg Garden." See More
"The Mona Lisa at the louvre is a must, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile and Champs-Élysées for shopping, and the Catacombes de Paris." See More
"With so little time I would avoid the Eiffel Tower (although it's my favorite building in the world), the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile and the Champs-Élysées in general, Basilique du Sacre-Coeur (no reason--just not my thing) and the The Louvre." See More
"Landmarks to look for when you’re booking would be Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the Latin Quarter, Ile Saint-Louis, Le Marais, Quai d'Orsay, Invalides… You'll find cheaper things by Montmartre and out in the suburbs but those areas are not as nice." See More
"While in the area, go see the Musee Rodin or Les Invalides taste of a Paris neighborhood)." See More
