Booking a luxury vacation rental in the City of Light may be a dream come true, though you may not be surprised to learn that a Parisian vacation is a common dream to have. As such, many of the attractions that you long to see in the French capital are likely to be mobbed with tourists hoping to experience all that the city has to offer in a short amount of time. Yet Paris is a versatile and global city, meaning that there are plenty of amazing attractions that may draw fewer people, but retain plenty of charm.
One of these off-the-beaten-path attractions is the open-air sculpture garden known as le Musee de Sculpture en Plein Air. Located in the 5th Arrondissement, this stunning patch of greenery offers 50 unique and creative pieces and a leisurely stroll along the Seine at the same time.
Elsewhere, in the 2nd Arrondissement, lies Jean-Sans-Peur Tower, a structure named for John the Fearless, the Duke of Burgundy. This 15th century structure stands tall, and as one of the oldest buildings in the city, features a character all of its own.
Though a more popular destination, the Chateau de Vincennes is large enough that avoiding crowds becomes a breeze. As one of the few remaining castles that date back to the 12th century, this beautiful palace will let you see how royalty used to live – though while staying at luxurious villas in France, it may be hard to envy them.
