La Tour Eiffel was named for it's engineer, Gustave Eiffel, and was built in 1889 as the entrance for the World's Fair. Since then, it's become a global attraction and stands 1,063-feet tall. The Eiffel Tower is the tallest structure is Paris and the most visited. On the first and second levels, you'll find delicious restaurants where you can enjoy a meal as you gaze across all of Paris and take in the breathtaking views. Head to the third level, at 906 feet up, to experience the observatory. From here you'll be treated to unobstructed views of the city, and nothing could be more romantic. If you visit at night, you can also catch the spectacular light show from the gardens below - or pretty much anywhere in the city.

- Museé du Louvre: One of the world's most expansive and impressive collections of art, including some of the most famous masterpieces on earth by da Vinci and so many more. Be advised: this museum is huge, so you may want to make a whole day of it here.

Things to Do Throughout France

- Chateau de Chambord: France is home to a multitude of stunning, fairy tale-like castles, including the Chateau de Chambord. The castle is one of the most recognizable in the world because of its distinct French Renaissance architecture, blending tradition and French medieval styles in the Loire Valley. It was built by King Francois I as a hunting lodge. Today, visitors can explore the various rooms and see the collections displayed throughout that were moved from the Louvre and Compiegne.

- Chateau La Tour de Chollet: France produces some of the world's best wines, so it's a must to visit some local vineyards during your stay. Chateau la Tour de Challot is a family-run, organically farmed winery situated in the French countryside town of Sainte Foy la Grande in Bordeaux. They produce two reds, a dry white, a sweet white and a rose, so come here to sip and swirl them all. Take a tour of the vineyard to learn about French viticulture, the work it takes to be a winemaker in France, as well as farming methods, grape varieties and more.

- Theatre Antique d'Orange: Go back in time to the 1st century A.D. with a trip the Theatre Antique d'Orange, which was built under Emperor Augustus. It was brought back to life in 2003, and now visitors can transport back to Imperial Rome in the south of France. Audio tours are available in multiple languages and teach you about the shows that were performed here as well as what social life was like during the 1st century. You can even see computer-generated recreations of shows in the projection room as you retrace the history of this famous theater.

- Palace of Versailles: One of the most opulent structures in France is the Palace of Versailles, which started as Louis XIII's hunting lodge before his son Louis XIV expanded it during the height of the French Empire. It holds one of the most beautiful collections of 18th century French art, and throughout the palace and the grounds you'll see the serious luxury of royalty at its highest. Not only is the palace itself stunning, but so are the magnificent gardens, which are worth a visit in-and-of themselves.
